  • Lessons in race and disparity, at gunpoint

    The Boston Globe - 08/16/2015

    MY MUGGER AND I didn’t discuss matters.

    He came toward me, I moved to pass him, he stepped into my path again, he pulled the gun out.

    I held up my phone and wallet, and said, “What else do you need?” He grabbed the phone out of my hands and said, “What else have you got?”

    “My wallet,” I said, pushing it closer. He grabbed it and ran to a car at the corner. I didn’t try to get a view of the license plate because I really didn’t want to get shot. It’s amazing how you don’t even have to think about how not to get shot. Step one: Don’t follow the guy with the gun.
