Elise McRae, December 21, 2014 in Vista Ridge Mall in Lewisville, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, asked to share her thoughts on recent protests and shootings in Ferguson and New York. // "I feel like I'm scared for my son when he goes to school, I'm scared for this, I'm scared for that. / "What are you afraid of?" / "I'm afraid of . . . I don't want my son to be afraid of the cops, but then at the same time, you know it's always African-American and Hispanic kids that they get in trouble. I don't want to think that way but it's kind of hard not to think that way especially when you see the news. My son is right there" - points at a small boy ten feet to my left as he soars 20 feet into the air while tethered to a multi-colored bungee contraption - /"How old is he? / "He's 5." // #BlackLivesMatter #Ferguson #NYPD #Dallas #Lewisville #VistaRidgeMall #Texas #black #scared #afraid #bungee
