Hey everyone - I published a feature story today, the result of two years of work. It's the longest I've ever spent on a single project and it taught me a lot. The experiences of the two brothers in this piece were at the top of my mind over the last year, as our country struggled to understand why young black men can't be safe walking the streets of their neighborhoods, and why there is no accountability for the cops who kill them. I saw how easy it is, on the flip side, to indict young men of color, to label them as gang members, and to keep the locked up for years without trial. If you have time today, please give it a read, let me know what you think, and share it on social media.
