    Hello Jack and Jill,
    I have followed politics on your blog for years now, keep up the great work!  As an African-American woman who lived for 19 years in Berlin, Germany, I have had the privilege of experiencing life as an artist (musician) on two continents. I recently started a blog which not only shares my experiences, but also features other Black American artists who live in Europe, or spent a significant amount of time there, and continue to be connected through work/relationships. I would be pleased to have my blog link listed among the cultural blogs on this site! Please contact me:    Charlyn Hashmi:   cghashmi@gmail.com

    Adventures Behind the Blue Wall

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7I0BMgOJ3I

    This piece is about a very uncomfortable instance for a black police officer and his white partner when one of them “mistakenly” shoots an innocent black man. It highlights the uncomfortable choices and decisions cops have to make when covering for one another.

    The inspiration for the sketch is partly from the viral video of a South Carolina police officer, Michael Slager shooting a fleeing suspect, Walter Scott, in the back 8 times fatally killing him. The sketch highlights how a few moments of privacy between two cops can completely change to outlook of a case when the camera’s aren’t around.

    The purpose of this sketch isn’t to color police officers as bad people, but it is meant to highlight the different kinds of people we trust to protect us and how far the city goes to select these people.
