#172: “I Don’t Want to Shoot You, Brother”
By Mark Isero • Issue #172 • View online
Happy Thursday, welcome to December, thank you for opening today’s issue, and please stop what you’re doing and read this week’s lead article, “I Don’t Want to Shoot You, Brother.” Focusing on the police shooting of a young Black man, the article won’t be easy to read. But I highly recommend it.
(Today’s other pieces — on hate crimes, Confederate defenders, and school desegregation — are good, too. Please enjoy!)
Today is HHH #8! We’re meeting up at Room 389 at 5:30 pm. I can’t wait to see everyone, chat about the articles, and dole out prizes. If you’re still on the fence, jump off and get a free ticket.

Last week’s article on fake news struck a chord. Did anyone quit Facebook in response? (Me neither.) Loyal reader Anne used the article with her students. Others wanted to learn more about Christopher Blair, aka “The Godfather of Fake News.” Here you go.
