Thoughts about friends. Blacken and police nrutality

Two young Black men were killed in the USA by the police. One in Ohio. One in Missouri.
I wonder if my friends get it. I wonder if the history and racism and pain of the situation crash their bodies and psyches the way it does mine.
Do they reach out to sons and nephews who are young and black ?
Do they feel the knowing gaze of fathers and uncles and husbands who were once young black men?
Do they muddy the water with discussions of black on black crime as if they don’t know don’t realize that the two types of acts have a common cause and effect?
