The news of Michael Taylor’s untimely death yesterday has gotten a few people thinking and talking.
Among them is cultural and political commentator Dr. Marc Lamont Hill who tweeted a very interesting point this morning.
Did the idea that his uncle’s actions and our laughter could have pushed Michael right into the life his family wanted him to avoid even cross your mind when you first saw that video?
And with all of the hazing cases being reported these past couple of weeks, do you think we “romanticize” and accept the type of violence that “toughens us up” a little too much??
