He didn’t deserve to die for something so insignificant. Not when white college boys continue to get away with rape for being “boys”. Not when men get away with rape because women dressed too “provocative”. Not when black men are shot killed for jogging at night. Not when men get thrown in jail for twenty plus years for possessing copious amounts of weed. All he did was try to pay for cigarettes with a fake twenty dollar bill. He did not deserve death for something as small as fake money. He did not deserve to die by the hands we entrusted to protect us. He did not deserve to die by the man kneeling on his neck whom we come to for protection. In his name we march on for justice.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Office Hours: 1 to 2 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation through email each week. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email.
