[Image: Four gifs of Phillip Agnew, a Black man, speaking on a live news show as a guest with his hands raised. In the third gif there is a split screen to several silhouetted figures with arms raised, standing between the camera and a bright spot light. The captions read: “Ever since you’re born, you’re taught that this posture right here should guarantee you life and liberty in your interaction with a police officer. This should indicate to a police officer that you mean him or her no harm, that you have no malice in your heart and that you’re subjecting yourself to the will of that police office And this is the position, that for years in this country, was the last position people that look like me, and people that look like people around this country died in.”]
