What is legal and what is right

... often have nothing to do with each other. I love this part in particular:

Thus, we should be warned by history not to overemphasize legality — or condemn all “lawlessness” — in our arguments for justice and our work in fighting oppression. To be clear, if a cop can kill you because they feel like it and you always “fit the description” of their target, you are not protected by the law. Why invest ourselves in protecting what does not protect us?

People should only support a healthy society that serves them well.  What does not should be torn down and replaced with something better.
