It has taken me a bit to get myself together over the latest episode of the police killing an unarmed black man.  And it turns out that Ta-Nehisi Coates said it far better than I ever could.

I think that this quote:

When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse.

covers the whole thing perfectly.
