One of these is not like the other

White 18-year-old walks up and down city streets with a loaded shotgun.

Result:  is approached and questioned by police, refuses to show ID to prove that he’s carrying legally, lives to make a total dick of himself on the evening news.

Image: snip from local news showing reporter on the left (white; male; salt & pepper hair) talking to white teenager with shot gun.  Caption reads "Teen Records Open-Carry Encounter.  18 year old faces misdemeanor charge."

Black 12-year-old plays with toy gun in a park.

Result:  shot dead by police 2 seconds after they arrive by car on the scene.

Image:  clip from newscast with photo of black boy with caption "Boy with toy gun shot 2 seconds after police arrived.  Police:  cop told boy 3 times to show hands before the shooting."
