“I Am My Brother’s Keeper”
Recently, we have witnessed the shooting of unarmed black males by law enforcement officers. We have also seen that the judicial system (courts) have been slow to indict the officers who have taken these black males’ lives. Write an essay which focuses on what you think can be done to lessen the loss of lives on the part of the black community, Hispanic community, the white community, and law enforcement.
