Dr. Brian H. Williams, a staff surgeon in Dallas who was working at Parkland Trauma Center last Thursday night during the shootings that left five cops dead, held a press conference expressing his views on race and other issues, NBC News reported.
"I want the Dallas PD to also see me, a black man, and understand that I support you, I will defend you, and I will care for you," said Dr. Brian H. Williams, a staff surgeon who was working at Parkland Trauma Center last Thursday night during the shootings.
But "that doesn't mean that I do not fear you," he added. "That doesn't mean that if you approach me I will not immediately have a visceral reaction and start worrying for my personal safety."
Williams spoke of setting an example for his daughter by interacting and treating officers with respect in a very public way— things like picking up their dining tab when he sees them eating out — so that she does not grow up crippled by fear.
