As we reported here, African American Harvard graduate and former Marvel editor Christian Cooper is calling for a ‘cease-fire’ of sorts against Amy Cooper – a White woman who called the police to falsely report he had threatened her in Central Park after he asked her to obey city orders to leash her dog on the public property.
Inciting conversations about racial privilege in the process, Christian – during a media blitz that’s seen him converse with the nation’s top TV and print outlets – argues some people have taken their defense tactics to the extreme by wishing death on the woman (who has already lost her job as a result of the backlash).
After empathizing with her predicament on CNN earlier this week, Christian and his sister Melody took to Thursday’s episode of ‘The View’ (May 28) to reiterate the empathized stance. This time, going on record to say he accepts Amy’s apology for their May 25 altercation.
