Renisha Mc Bride was a 19 year old black woman who was shot to death by Theodore Wafer in Dearborn Heights, Michigan on Nov. 2, 2013. After surviving a serious car accident, Renisha found herself knocking on the front door of Wafer's house at four in the morning in search of help but instead was met with a shotgun blast to her face. Wafer was found guilty and convicted of second degree murder in an outcome we don't see too often in cases involving white violence against black people. The killing of McBride has re-ignited the conversation about how we deal with the issues of violence against black women when we mostly come across a historical narrative of violence against black men. With this verdict, we must know that we nevertheless do not operate in a system that responds appropriately to the issues of violence against women of color. Renisha Mc Bride reminds us that the life of black womyn matter just as much as when we talk about the lives of black men.
