“Why Do Black Lives Matter”
Analysis Of Quote
Step 1: According to Anthony Bradley,”In the current crisis, we are left to reduce some of our neighbors to depersonalized nouns: “suspect,” “thug,” “criminal,” “felon,” or “cop.” This type of depersonalization is the gateway to dehumanization because it gives us permission to suspend the requirement to treat people with dignity, even if they have broken the law”(1).
