A black Texas law maker wants to change the state’s self-defense laws to return to the days when you were required to try to run away from an attacker. From NewsMax:

Democratic state Rep. Garnet Coleman told the station the Texas legislature went too far in 2007 when it removed the “duty to retreat before using deadly force” clause from the law, which gives citizens a green light to defend themselves, or stand their ground, rather than run from a confrontation. He said the change in wording had a disproportionate impact on minorities.

Maybe that is because minorities commit a disproportionate percentage of crimes.
