People can go on late night TV and cry about Cecil the lion. That’s fine. No one would EVER be allowed to go on TV and cry about Tamir Rice. At least, not without a shitload of complaints. Just saying. Americans are only OK with a certain, safe type of grief. As long as it doesn’t threaten the status quo, that’s the main thing. You can mourn a lion and hate an evil dentist. You can’t mourn a dead 12 year old killed by a reckless, racist cop. No, not ever.
