    The controversy surrounding Renisha McBride and how we should deal with being Black while needing help from strangers is a murky one.

    Pastor Bryant poses the question, “What is the system in America to suggest, whether you’re bleeding or you’re walking out of an accident — you’re already seen to be guilty.” While Harley LeBon attempts to “extract race” from the situation, the other members of the panel wholeheartedly disagree.
