Thanks Olivia. I gave the above story because it was the only time I’ve ever called the police and I thought it might help to show that I understand the impulse. People have chosen to get caught up on it, though I tend to think that they would’ve responded the same way to any story. I’d like more white people to think before they act. That’s it. So thanks for reading with a critical eye and for your thoughtful response!
