When my brain started combining the complexity of being Black in America with the real world proposal of wandering and exploration that is designed into the gamplay of Pokemon GO, there was only one conclusion. I might die if I keep playing.

This week has proven he's not wrong.

if you look at some pure stats in 2010 and 2011 there were 4906 black on black murders. FBI data source.

between 1980 and 2008 52% of murders in the US were committed by blacks even though they are ~20% of the population:

if you are in the US and you are black statistically you should be scared of other people. now...most of those murders are from gang hits in cities like chicago, east st louis, etc...

and more number fun:

Here's a fact for you -- 25% of black men in the united states have been permanently barred from voting.

That's not a side effect -- that's the point of the police brutality. Get as many in the system as possible. Provoke provoke provoke.
