"When Does Your Humanity Kick In?"

Nicely put Al Sharpton.

Perhaps Al should consider his words because maybe 'humanity' is the problem. As Carey Wolf wrote in his Before the Law Foucauldian/Agamben treatment of how the legal system frames animals: we are all potential animals ie deprived of personhood and made killable or sacrificiable (in whatever jargon one wants to put it). Thus a constrained and restructured definition of 'humanity' excludes the Michael Browns and Eric Garners of this word as non persons, lacking in humanity and killable by the government at will. I have met Al Sharpton a few time and the dude utters manipulative phrases designed to produce a familiar affective response -- just like Reagan did. The black men being murdered by police deserve a more intelligent and forceful advocate.
