renisha mcbride shooting
Renisha McBride was black, a woman and human. She deserved to be alive today. Her life and black women's lives matter.
While accidents are commonplace, many can have legal consequences. Spilling hot coffee, slipping and falling, and the often-occurring automobile "fender bender" may cause injury to people and property and result in lawsuits seeking monetary damages. But some accidents are far more serious.
As a young adult, I was Renisha McBride. Traveling home from college late one evening, my car stalled. With no cell phone, and still miles away from home, I made Renisha's choice. I walked to the nearest home and knocked on the front door.
