Using Google Glasses to document injustices

Here’s a useful tip from an electronic-savvy Black activist I met today at the “Stop Police Brutality” rally. He said to minimize problems of “driving while Black” he wears Google Glasses, which I had never heard of. He said they transmit video directly to his electronic devices, including YouTube.

“Minimize” would be the operative verb since as we know from Eric Garner, indisputable evidence of a police crime against a Black person may not hold up in court. Such is the state of US justice. But it doesn’t hurt to gather evidence anyway because the movements for social justice can find a way to use the truth.
