Don’t get it twisted “Dablo.” If you can’t see that these situations happen to a disproportionate number Black Americans than white Americans, the logical conclusion is that it’s because you don’t want to see it. That’s unfortunate and equally as exhausting because the evidence is right before your eyes.

My guess is that you’d be one of the first to say the school-to-prison pipeline harvests more white boys than Black boys. And that redlining, predatory lending with higher interest rates, and a host of other acts of institutional racism occur to greater numbers of white citizens than Black citizens.

How about this. What if you took a break from your reflexive white supremacist narrative and paid more attention to the systemic racism that creates an environment that fosters shitty behavior by bad cops? What about that?

Perhaps if you traded in your thread-bare excuses that maintain the status quo for a rationale that’s a bit more proactive, people wouldn’t have to read your thoughtless dribble.

I’d thank you for your time and comment, but that’d be insincere.

Peace.
