Brunswick, Georgia has long escaped riots or major protests about race, but Ahmaud Arbery's death could be a 'great awakening' for conversations about racism and corruption in the criminal justice system.

Booker, the only black member of the commission, represents most of the county's African American community, 27% of the population. And his nephew's best friend was Ahmaud Arbery.

Unlike many southern cities, Brunswick hasn't seen violence, riots or major protests about race, Booker said. Instead, hate was"undercover," he said. Until the viral video of Arbery's killing, which has thrust it into view. Hudson said the circumstances of Arbery's death were not surprising to him, in part because, he said, they reflect how relationships drive the criminal justice system in a small town like Brunswick. He saw local lawyers, who knew judges and prosecutors, get better deals for their clients.

"For African Americans, it's really just a tough place to live, and to work, and to be successful," he said."It was a lot to sort of breakthrough that caste system, the caste system legally. And it was very helpful, if you were white. It was more of a challenge being black." Yancey attributed it in part to the"daily indignities" black people in Glynn, and across the country have to face. But the reputation of the Deep South in particular, he said, keeps some people of color away.

Conversation is okay. A little late to the party but okay.

Escaped? Better late than never, and no time like the present.

GEORGE FLOYD FULL looks like he killed him because I think these Officers have had enough. They are human beings and people are fighting them throwing water on them disrespecting them. looks like he had an attitude of I don't care if I do kill him to me.
