Every time I see a young Black man (and by young, I mean anyone Eric Garner’s age or younger), I can’t help but wonder what would happen to him if a move he made or an outfit he wore or something he was carrying in his hands (a wallet, a phone, a banana) caused a police officer to fear for his life. Is it possible that the greatest threat to the safety and survival of an unarmed Black┬áman is a frightened police officer? Ajuan Mance
