Over at The Bulwark, Gregg Hurwitz has a piece on the riots sweeping across the country.

Here’s one paragraph:

The black protesters filming white thugs destroying storefronts and screaming for them to stop. Pleading with white vandals to stop spray-painting, stop defacing cop cars, stop lighting stores on fire. Grabbing a professional saboteur to turn him over to the cops, almost getting pulled into the fray themselves. They are literally shouting for the violence to stop . . . to whites . . . in the middle of demonstrations over the killing of a black man.

Here’s another paragraph:

This will come down like hell on black communities. They are the canaries in the coal mine of American tragedies. When things devolve and polarize, black Americans pay the price first, and most often. Their voices get shut down. Their voting booths go away. Their children get killed.
