“Would this have happened if the driver were white, if the passengers were white?” Gov. Mark Dayton asked at a news conference. “I don’t think it would have.”
He said he had heard from many black people, including some in positions of authority, about “how they’ve been pulled over, singled out,” in a way that white people would not have. “I’ve been told by very respectable African-American leaders that they understand how this dynamic goes on.”
I never like to write about shooting like this on this blog. But this touched me because yesterday other man known as Alton Sterling who was black was shot by a police officer. Now I don’t know the whole details. But today I woke up with a notification on my phone that a man called Philando Castile who was black was shot by a police officer. Just one day after a police officer shot a black man in America another one gets shot today.
I just wanted to share this because I believe it’s important for America – US to wake up.
