    What am I supposed to tell my son?

     
    How do I tell my soon-to-be-born son that no matter what he does, that he might die from a hail of bullets from law enforcement? How do I tell him that if he is slain by law enforcement, half the country will try to prove why he deserved it? How do I tell him that it doesn't matter if he's armed or unarmed, college educated or drug dealer, saint or sinner? How do I tell him that too often rather than subdue, it's shoot until dead? And how do I tell him it will only happen to him because of his race and the automatic suspicion placed on him by society?
