What It Felt Like to Be a 'Suspicious' Black Teenager

online.wsj.com — As one of the few black male reporters at The Journal, I've had experiences over the years that are unknown among my white colleagues, though anything but unique among other black men. We've all had our encounters; we've all been in situations where being black becomes synonymous with being suspicious, where demanding rights and respectful treatment can be seen as resisting law enforcement.

blogs.wsj.com — The death of former Washington Mayor Marion Barry Jr. this week at age 78 is a strangely poignant moment in my household. I met my wife Cristina covering the mayor's crack possession trial 24 years ago. I was a cub reporter running reports in and out of the courtroom for the wire service United Press International back then.
