    Gee, I guess it does get boring when it's an old story that keeps happening over and over again.

    What does National Review want us to do?  Just accept it as life-as-usual (which, unfortunately, I guess it is, just like school shootings) and go on to the next one?

    Thing is, this would still be an outrage, no matter what racial configuration you changed it to.  A young man got gunned down while surrendering.  That sucks if it's white-cop/white-kid, black-cop/black-kid, black-cop/white-kid, or... you name it.  There's lots of crayons in the box, color this picture any way you want and it still remains an outrage.

    The fact that this keeps happening to black men at a higher percentage than it does to anybody else remains a problem, whether it's "boring" or not.   You can't "yawn" people into accepting this shit.
