    “Killing African Americans examines the pervasive, disproportionate, and persistent police and vigilante killings of African Americans in the United States as a racial control mechanism that sustains the racial control system of systemic racism. Noel A. Cazenave’s well-researched and conceptualized historical sociological study is one of the first books to focus exclusively on those killings and to treat them as political violence.” https://www.routledge.com/Killing-African-Americans-Police-and-Vigilante-Violence-as-a-Racial-Control/Cazenave/p/book/9781138549937
