I thank Bob Cebrat who, in his Aug. 29 letter, “Selective outrage,” wrote about the shooting death of Dwyane Wade’s cousin and the lack of any protests. The hurt and anger that arise when a person dies violently is understandable. Therefore, I pose this question: Is a black life only valuable when taken by a police officer?
African-American protesters seem to only value black lives when a death is caused by a white civilian or police officer and not by another black person. As a black man, I urge the Black Lives Matter protesters to rise up in righteous indignation when a black person is killed by another black person as well.
