This is a reflective Sabbath, with the killing of two African American males by police officers. What followed was an uproar on social media and peaceful protests across the United States. The recorded narratives of “what happened” reveal a persistent tethering of the African American community. The loss of human life for trivial reasons such as a routine traffic stop or walking, highlights an overt disparity in law enforcement in the United States.
