At the end of the month, when the cops are filling out arrest quotas, you look like a jackpot. Like a promotion. Don't move when they pull out their guns. Don't run. Don't think of family, don't think of a future, don't think: what are they taking me for? Don't talk back. Don't question the gun.

[The above image is from Ferguson, Missouri. The name of the young man on the ground is Michael Brown. There are much more shocking images of his body on that street that many of us have seen. I chose this one because it at least affords him the dignity of being covered.] ...
