Freddie Gray died after he tried to run from the police. Some might think he was wrong for provoking a chase, but the thousands of people now protesting across the country know that getting killed as a consequence of running away is like getting killed for trying to breathe: you can’t be blamed for wanting to bolt when the system is stacked against you at every turn.
Thank you Ms Chen. I have missed your articles here. You have a great empathy for the people you write about be it the poor working people of Bangladesh or of the Ivory Coast or of the United States of America. I consider you one the the true journalists and one with a heart as big as the sky.
