For many white people, violence against the Black community is not an abstraction. Since the US Civil Rights Movement, even with minimal desegregation of public schools, the personal interactions between white & Black kids have led to mixed families. Love happens. I have several Black nieces & nephews who live in Minneapolis & many more cousins who live in St. Paul. When we see several cases now of police in the Twin Cities using extreme violence against Blacks & killing them, it is a family concern, not just a political outrage.
