9 TV Shows That Rose From the Dead | Made Man
I wrote a thing about zombie TV shows! Not shows featuring zombies, mind you, but shows that are themselves undead. (A few of ‘em might have had a zombie or two in them, though. Or at least a Reaver.)

By all accounts, Brown was One Of The Good Ones. But laying all this out, explaining all the ways in which he didn’t deserve to die like a dog in the street, is in itself disgraceful. Arguing whether Brown was a good kid or not is functionally arguing over whether he specifically deserved to die, a way of acknowledging that some black men ought to be executed.

To even acknowledge this line of debate is to start a larger argument about the worth, the very personhood, of a black man in America. It’s to engage in a cost-benefit analysis, weigh probabilities, and gauge the precise odds that Brown’s life was worth nothing against the threat he posed to the life of the man who killed him.
