Cameras are everywhere these days. And you’re always on. Your response to this new reality probably depends on who you are. Here are a couple of possible reactions: White people: “I’m worried about living in a surveillance society.” Black people: “Keep those cameras rolling.” Videotaped fatalities at the hands of police seem to be confirming a story that many Americans have been telling us for years. Georgtown’s Paul D. Butler sums up the impact of police shootings caught on camera: “A lot of white people are truly shocked by what these videos depict; I know very few African-Americans who are surprised. The videos are smoking-gun evidence, both literally because they are very graphic, which generates outrage, and figuratively, because people believe their own eyes.” From the NYT: The Videos That Are Putting Race and Policing Into Sharp Relief.

+ Fortune’s Mathew Ingram: “Sometimes, the ubiquity of smartphone cameras brings us touching moments from our friends’ lives or the unintentional joy of a Chewbacca Mom video. Other times, it brings death in close — to the point where it is impossible to ignore.” A day after the Baton Rouge shooting hit the Internet, the aftermath of another shooting was broadcast on Facebook Live. From Diamond Reynolds who broadcasted the moments after her boyfriend was shot by police: “I wanted it to go viral.”
