Black Death: The Rashomon Effect and Our Symbols of Justice

...The Rashomon effect does not mean that everyone's point of view is correct. There are facts, and the fact that black lives are being taken with little or no consequence is not up for debate. It is a fact. If we are to move forward toward justice and healing, our institutions and those who run them must acknowledge the Rashomon effect. There must be meaningful changes based around this new understanding. People who have the power of life and death must be educated to see that their indifference is real and has had and will continue to have deadly consequences if they don't change.
