During my lifetime, I haven’t had much contact with famous people. In other words, I haven’t exchanged handshakes and howdy-dos with anybody that gets more attention than we non-famous people. I’m not sure just who should be considered famous, but I know them when I see them.
Many years ago, I watched a sheriff shoot a black man who was running away from him. The incident was troubling because the sheriff shot the man in the back, and because the man had not committed a serious crime, but he ran because he knew he would be treated badly anyway if he were arrested. So he ran from the sheriff and was shot simply because he was afraid.
