To assume the innocence or guilt of someone based on skin-color alone is racism. I never said anything about those who "take the available information into consideration".
I had no idea what was happening, but I saw how it would end: I would be dead in the stairwell outside my apartment, because something about me — a 5-foot-7, 125-pound black woman — frightened this man with a gun
They asked me why I hadn’t come outside shouting, “I live here.”
