The common defense to criticisms of racial disparities in police use of force takes the form of a question: "But what about black-on-black crime?" The conservative argument is that black people are disproportionately killed by gun violence in their own communities, so perhaps they should worry about that before they worry about what police are doing. On Tuesday night, Fox News's Mike Tobin put the black-on-black crime question to a protester in Chicago, Brendan Glover, after the release of a video showing the police shooting of Laquan McDonald. Mike Tobin: Essentially the question he's getting to is why is there not outrage when there's black on black violence.
Just over 24 hours after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane after claiming the jet had violated Turkish airspace, Moscow is already exacting its revenge — albeit subtly.

There are, like, 99 problems with Ray Lewis working as an analyst for ESPN and this particular ethics violation totally is one. On Sunday night, one day before commentating on Monday night’s Buffalo-New England game, Ray Lewis gave a pep talk to the Bills, coached by Rex Ryan, Lewis’s former defensive coordinator in Baltimore.
