Police shooting black men for no good reason

Need to not talk to my brother for a while. All I have posted on Facebook for the past couple days is grief over the police shootings, and all he has posted is support for the police / blaming the victims / denying that racism exists. I've been tempted to respond to one of his most offensive posts, because it's hard to see it there and not point out how statistically inaccurate and emotionally inappropriate it is, but I know I wouldn't accomplish anything except potentially embroiling myself in a debate with his racist friends that would upset me further.

I probably should stay away from Facebook for a while, because it isn't helping with my mood at all. I'm not really strong enough to face the world's darkness right now—I'm struggling enough with my own.
