    the 1st line in the article:

    quote:
    Dear White People,

    I’m scared of you.


    gosh, I'm so sorry you are frightened - maybe you should grow a set?

    So now, seeking protection from peace officers is racist!

    I would say that this is outrageous and shocking, but it isn't

    It's just another day for our friends on the left...

    When Calling 911 Makes the Emergency


    quote:
    The ability to call in armed guards in an attempt to police black behavior is a form and direct expression of white power and privilege in America.

    the author does say this:

    quote:
    I obviously respect every citizen’s right—slash duty—to engage the police when there’s actual danger or when there’s a real crime taking place.

    but for some reason, I don't believe it...

    I read this yesterday and this line caught my attention:

    “Black interactions with police can too easily lead to trauma or death. In many situations, calling the police on a black person can be like tossing a grenade at them.”

    Cooperate and comply with reasonable police requests for information and identification and you're on your way. Unless you are committing a crime. Then, there is a reason for you to be dealing with the consequences of your actions. The author seems to think blacks are unable to behave in a reasonable manner which I find quite odd and contrary to my own experience. I don't get this statement at all.

    Jerry West being 1-8 in the finals, winnings a finals MVP when he lost, being nicknamed “Mr. Clutch” and being the logo is PEAK white privilege.

    Yeah when a "real crime is taking place". Get it? Not an assumption of crime made by some white racist idiot.

    Blacks have done that and still die. Whites have pulled guns on police and have lived. Drop the racist beliefs that all blacks are getting killed by police because thy are not complying with police commands. By law we do not just have to do whatever the police say. You own experience may not be that of a black person. And that's the trouble with this discussion, whites refuse to understand that not everybody gets treated the same. That cops are humans and a lot of them are running around believing the same shit whites here believe about backs. But they have a gun and permission to end a life based on their discretion. And once they kill somebody they know all they have to do is say they felt threatened and the civilian enablers won't question while their departments will send them on a paid vacation until they finish a scam investigation that ends up justifying the killing.

    And, your point is....what?

    Because....

    As of, May 3, 2018, 425 people,
    have been shot and killed by law enforcement

    176 were white
    85
    were black


    In 2017, 987 people, were shot and killed by law enforcement

    457 were white
    223
    were black


    In 2016, 963 people, were shot and killed by law enforcement

    466 were white
    234
    were black
    Drop the race card and stop constantly and continuously,
    spewing your racist propaganda, over and over and over,
    and start GETTING REAL, by ACKNOWLEDGING the truth!

    Because, the truth is....

    Here, in Chicago...not Illinois, just Chicago,
    in the month of May, alone....

    Shot and killed: 44
    Shot & Wounded: 264
    Total Shot: 308
    Total Homicides: 51

    Last week, alone....(5/27 - 6/2)

    Shot & Killed: 9
    Shot & Wounded: 53
    Total Shot: 62
    Total Homicides: 10

    So far, the number of people,
    shot and killed, since January 1, 2018, is 174

    Year to Date

    Shot & Killed: 174
    Shot & Wounded: 904
    Total Shot: 1078
    Total Homicides: 209

    167, of the 174 shooting deaths,
    were classified as a homicide

    Of the 209 homicides,
    83.1% were shot and killed

    A black person was involved, in 73.6%
    of the 83.1% of people, shot and killed

    148 were victims
    21 were assailants

    ...173 unknown assailants, accounted for,
    5.5% of the 83.1% of gun related homicides

    Of the 148 black people, shot and killed,
    only 1 was killed by law enforcement,...
    just yesterday, as a matter of fact

    Of the 174 people shot and killed, 148 were black
    Only 1, of the 148 black people killed, involved CPD
    NO...^ that's what is so troubling!


    The failure of black America
    acknowledging and addressing the real problems,
    instead of having excuses and blaming race and slavery

    The reason black thugs dont want to comply,
    is because they want the police to rough them up
    so they could file a lawsuit and cash in

    There are African Americans and there are n1ggers
    When decent black folks speak up and get honest,
    and finally start a real discussion, then we'll know, BLM

    Are you calling me a racist? You wouldn't if you knew me. Throwing the race card to invalidate the other person's point of view is worn out. In the post Obama era, all it does is make you look lazy.

    OK. Not arguing here. But you might also want to consult the Law of Survival. You might want to use a huge amount of common sense and self restraint. Cops REGULARLY kill people they come into contact with. That tiny fact seems to be overlooked by many people.

    When you come into contact with a cop for whatever reason, however minor the encounter starts, you need to keep the fact in the front of your mind that you are in a life and death situation and that thought alone should govern your actions.

    This stupid little white boy got killed for essentially acting like a jerk. Had nothing to do with being white. He was just too stupid to live in our environment. The cop pulled him over for flashing his high beams. A few moments later he was dead. This is example A of an easily preventable death by cop.
