Finally, Special Olympics Washington sponsored a Run From the Cops event which demonstrated both privilege and ignorance. They eventually changed it and offered a non-apology explanation for the event.
Did you know that white suburban America has “run from the cops” or “cops and robbers” or related events for fundraising all the time? More on this to come.
