Marc Lamont Hill’s Devastating Statement on Black Lives: We are Rendered Invincible and When Seen We Are Still Nobody

On Thursday’s edition of Democracy Now! Live, professor and commentator Marc Lamont Hill reflects on the recent killings of 37-year-old Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and 32-year-old Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

In the short clip, Hill says that Black people can resist, comply, stand still, run, sag pants, or have pants around their waist — they can still be shot by officers.

“If you are a ‘good guy’ it does not matter,” he says. ” The problem is not the people being killed … Fundamentally, we have to deal with the issue of white supremacy.”
