Indicted for the murder of #BothamJean in his own apartment and suddenly #AmberGuyger never looked better … what’s going on here?

It’s simple— Guyger’s defense team strategy to soften her appearance, highlighting her golden locks and daintiness is a direct appeal to the American cultures propensity to come to the defense of white womanhood. It is a complementary tactic to the common character assassination of black victims we saw occur on the day of Botham’s memorial service. They are playing into long held prejudices of black male criminality and white purity. The challenge is going to be getting a Texas Jury that doesn’t buy into it.
