Turin Carter, the uncle of 19-year-old Tony Robinson Jr., who was shot and killed by a Madison, Wisconsin police officer over the weekend, said his nephew being killed is a universal issue that people of all races should understand. And that his nephew “just wanted to be loved”
Robinson’s mother is white and his father is black, and Carter seemed to think that his race had nothing to do with him being killed.
“A lot of his identity was formed because of his racial ambiguity,” Carter said.
“Tyrell felt a misfit for most of his life and that’s why we became close,” he said.
“We don’t want to just stop at black lives matter. … Tyrell is a mixture of everything. You can’t look at him and say he’s black,” Carter said.
As if the cops took a second to ask, “Hey, are you mixed or fully negro?”, before riddling his body with bullets.
