I have three boys, one of whom is a teenager.

I have never felt the need to explain to them how to behave if they were ever to get into a confrontation with the police.

In fact, before tonight, it's never really occurred to me that things would be very different if we were black or Hispanic.

That's white privilege. Right there.

If you can't (or won't) see that, there's nothing I can do to help you. Whatever is left is between you and the man upstairs.

Have a nice night.
