137 Shots on Netflix. I've been reading books and watching movies on race themes lately. This documentary is maddening. It's the real life tragedy of a high speed chase through Cleveland, Ohio involving sixty police cars and one hundred policemen shooting a total of 137 shots at the vehicle of an unarmed black couple. The ending is outrageous and egregious.
Currently Reading: We Are Not Like Them
This book is co-written by a black and a white author and is one of the most authentic books I have ever read on the theme of race. Riley and Jen are life long friends who are tested when Jen's police officer husband is responsible for the shooting death of a black fourteen-year-old. The nuances of both perspectives are so beautifully written and strike such a chord when you read them. As a white woman I saw some behaviors and thinking that I need to change as a result of this book. Every person should read this book.

P.S. If you've read one of my books, can you help an author on the quest to become a New York Times Bestseller out? Reviews are gold and help me reach more people. Please take a minute and tell me (and other readers) what you thought. You can review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, and Apple Books or at any other bookseller. It's even better if you copy and paste the review to multiple places. More reviews=More visibility. You can write as much or as little as you want and I would be forever in your debt.Check out the Books Worth Reading Blog for My Favorite Reads.
