The Narrative of Police Shootings: Identity, Pride and Prejudice

Source: Scott Paine
The political season gives rise to many things: bus tours and tarmac rallies, mass mailings and door-to-door canvasses, robocalls, TV ads and editorial endorsements.
The endorsement that caught my attention over the weekend wasn’t striking for who was endorsed. Given the news outlet, that really wasn’t a surprise.
It was two sentences describing conditions that struck me as jarring . . . whatever one thinks of the conclusions the editorial board drew from their assessment.
The next president will take office with bigoted, tribalist movements and their leaders on the march. In the Middle East and across Asia, in Russia and Eastern Europe, even in Britain and the United States, war, terrorism and the pressures of globalization are eroding democratic values, fraying alliances and challenging the ideals of tolerance and charity.
That got me thinking about a variety of important events tied to notions of identity and prejudice.
