The world knows that Chicago judge Raymond Myles had been murdered.
But the world had been informed that New York judge Shelia Abdus-Salaam had committed suicide. Both were black.
Now, reports lawyer-journalist Kathryn Rubino in Abovethelaw.com, how Abdus-Salaam died is being investigated.
This is a time when blacks in general are under attack. In addition, Abdus-Salaam made progressive rulings when the alt-right has been gaining power. For example, she redefined the concept of the family in a custody ruling.
A person who knew Adbus-Salaam well - her husband Gregory Jacobs - refutes the assumption that the judge was suffering from clinical depression.
Law enforcement is asking for information about how Abdus-Salaam might have been done in and why.
A minority group as targeted in America is nothing new, of course. That is a shifting phenomenon.
Growing up in the 1950s in Irish-controlled Jersey City, New Jersey, I was made to feel less than.
In graduate school for English language and literature at the University of Michigan at the end of 1960s, the WASP ethos dominated. It was spiritual death by a million words spoken a la boarding school lockjaw. I had attended public school.
Only when I found my way into a behind-the-scenes role as a business ghostwriter/speechwriter did I come into my own. The blossoming happened after I hung out my own shingle.
The amazing thing is that we minorities didn't give up. Among those not caving to spiritual death probably included Abdus-Salaam.
