I don’t want to talk about Walter Scott: Police brutality in a world of media bullshit

Well, I’ve been hearing stories like this, not for a year, not since Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012, not since “social media” got started, but for my entire life. This simulator by Prof. Joshua Correll that everyone was talking about after Mike Brown’s death, proving that people are faster to shoot black suspects than white ones regardless of how “not-racist” they think they are? It’s been around since 2000, a year after a black man was shot for pulling out his wallet in 1999.
