Darrien Hunt, a person of colour and a part of the cosplay community, was shot dead by police for walking around with a toy sword. http://www.dailydot.com/news/darrien-hunt-shot-by-police-while-cosplaying/
If anyone going to New York Comic Con would like to join me, I’ll be wearing a black ribbon on the sleeve of my cosplay each of the four days. It’s not much, but I figure it’s at least something that we as a community can do to show solidarity.
If anyone has any other ideas, please feel free to share them.
I’ll be there.
