Dark Skinned Thug

This thug has darker skin. He is feared more because he is harder to spot at night, which makes him harder to shoot. So, these thugs are shot the quickest, because we know cops ain't trying to run.

Didn't find a characterization that fit you?

Yea, most black men don't. But, that's ok. Just keep watching the news. I'm sure you will find one soon enough since so many different black men are getting murdered so often. And with that I leave you with these simple words.

"Stay safe, stay sane, stay in doors."
