How Do We Respond to Racial Injustice?
Jared Belcher, Ben Shoun, & Brett Moore
On Friday evening at 7:40, Terence Crutcher was on his way home from his music appreciation class when his car stalled. As he waved his hands to ask for help from the approaching police officers, they drew their guns on Terence, a 40 year old black man, and within seconds of what seems to have been some yelling, they tased and shot him. The police report said he was being uncooperative and made a movement for his car, but the two graphic videos released on Monday by the Tulsa Police Department paint a very different and sadly, familiar picture. As more evidence of racially-biased police brutality floods our news feeds more each day, what should be the Christian’s response, white or black?
