Do you really want me to list the names of Black people killed by cops?

How far back do you want to go?

Eric Garner?

Further back?

Your response is so insulting, that it fits right in with Trump's dog whistle to his White Supremacist base with the Tulsa rally.

Excuse me while I step over the deadwood, and don't stop to coddle.

You claimed "systemic racism" among the "policing system ".  So, no.  Listing the names of black people killed by police wouldnt support your opinion.

Convenient excuse. 

Of course a supporter of the Racist in Chief would choose to deny the history and evidence of racism in policing.  It's almost like you think we've not heard that gas lighting and nonsense before.  If you trip over to the yellow side you can hook up with a couple of other posters who support Trumpand are blind to his racism or the racism in our society. I'm guessing that you could find some encouragement there. 

 

Much easier to disbarage and discredit then to discuss the topic.

I guess that's really the only option when the facts dont support one's preferred narrative.

And there is systemic racism within the policing system.

Please share your evidence that backs up your opinion.

I disagree, and would share evidence that shows you are incorrect.  However, I dont want to be accused of posting Trumpster propaganda.

No, please share this "evidence" you have. I live in the UK and even our police have some institutional racism.

[...]

Don't you think that they should both share their "evidence?"

This is long. 

White supremacists other domestic extremists maintain an active presence in U.S. police departments and other law enforcement agencies

A striking reference to that conclusion, notable for its confidence and the policy prescriptions that accompany it, appears in a classified FBI Counterterrorism Policy Guide from April 2015...

...   14 officers in the San Francisco Police Department were caught exchanging racist and homophobic texts that included several references to “white power” and messages such as “all n*****s must f****** hang.” Most of those officers remain on the force after an attempt to fire several of them was blocked by a judge, who said the statute of limitation had expired...

...   “Anybody who’s on social media advocating support for ISIS can be criminally charged with very little effort.” “For some reason, we have stepped away from the threat of domestic terrorism and right-wing extremism,” Jones continued. “The only way we can reconcile this kind of behavior is if we accept the possibility that the ideology that permeates white nationalists and white supremacists is something that many in our federal and law enforcement communities understand and may be in sympathy with.”

Chare, I have already stated that I find the poster's statement so insulting, that I have stepped over the deadwood.

Now, if someone else would like to engage in coddling, go right ahead.

Most posters here, are well aware of this country's founding history.

Some, may even be aware of the history of policing in this nation, which is less than noble.

I am speaking from a White perspective.

As Trump's behavior becomes more and more unhinged, as he sinks lower in the polls, I am reminded of a scene from the Wizard of Oz.

Do you all recall, towards the end of the film, the Wicked Witch melts into the ground.

As she does so, she whines: I'm melting! I'm melting!

Yes, Donald John Trump, you are indeed melting!

I think that the newspapers, online journalism, video journalism, and data are public evidence that there's a problem with institutional racism within our policing  and justice systems. The history is there.  The stories are there.  The images are there. The personal suffering is there. 

There's no evidence that can disprove the obvious racial violence that is ignored and even protected in some precincts. Pointing to other violence doesn't disprove anything.  Ignoring proportionality in data analysis doesn't disprove anything.  

In my view, someone with no evidence suggesting that someone else prove that the sky is blue is tiresome.

Only metaphorically.  In reality he has enormous power, no ethical or moral compass and no limits on his authority in evidence.

"Reports of racially motivated, fatal shootings by police officers have garnered extensive public attention and sparked activism across the nation. New research from Michigan State University and University of Maryland reveals findings that flip many of these reports on their heads – white police officers are not more likely to have shot minority citizens than non-white officers."

https://msutoday.msu.edu/news/2019/the-truth-behind-racial-disparities-in-fatal-police-shootings/

"Hold officers accountable who use excessive force. But there’s no evidence of widespread racial bias."
