What’s remarkable about Greene’s racism is that it’s not even eloquent or wrapped up in the false equivalence we’re accustomed to. It’s 5th-grade reading level bigotry, from a congressperson.

On Feb. 16, Seattle PD encountered a man who’d cut himself. They killed him when he approached an officer with the knife. The killing was just local news, because this is one of the few nations where it’s normal for police to execute suicidal people.
