The New York Times published a piece yesterday on tennis star Naomi Osaka, who’s also been making a name for herself as an activist.

Independent journalist Jeryl Bier was reading the piece when he ran across a rather interesting passage about the effect that the Jacob Blake shooting had on Osaka:

“Exchanging words with the police”? That’s a funny way of saying “being armed with a knife.”

Jacob Blake had a knife. It’s right there in the New York Times. Did they just forget or what?

Good point.
