      Hi Shino,
      I was thinking of same discussion question(#1) as you!
      In this article, the main point is very “black men.”
      So, we need to discuss about it and “race.”
      You have good comprehension questions and discussion questions!
      I’m looking forward to discussing with you and this group.
      Also, we know the vocabulary “suspicion,” so I think it is better to adopt another word 🙂

      See you tomorrow lol

        In addition, I have one suggestion!!
        I think it would be better if you put together my discussion question and yours. Especially my #2 and your #1. As you can see, mine is similar to yours, and your question is a little bit connects to negative question, I think. So, how about putting together both of them??:)
