Dr. Rodriguez-Plate, you note that "his (Wilson's) vision had to come from somewhere" and that "it is not much of a stretch to suggest Wilson's image of the demon was placed in his mind by seeing images on some screen." These notions of Michael Brown as a "demon" or "Hulk Hogan" are part of common White racist stereotypes of Black men.
