Yes profile. I hope people do not think police want to lose their job and that they are racist.
African Americans have caused all of this. Cops are so afr aid of being shot that everything is out of control. Just look at the Chicago situation, Chiraq!, cabrini green, Almost as much city devastation as Detroit, and all mostly due to poor African Americans. It's a fact in case anyone wants to call me racist. What got them to this point is irrelevant, they make these choices. It's never the poor whites or Hispanics or Indians in the news here. Just the African americans. In the Chicago area we live in terror of them.
I am really sorry to say, but that is the case. I have no ill will toward anyone and have had many good times with all races. In fact, my best friend in the military was black.
Stop blaming cops for everything...Long story short.
Thank you for the honest post.
This interests me a lot. Now, I think the OP gave an absolutely superb analysis of the main explanation of the cops versus blacks relationship and problem, and it's a shame there isn't more awareness of this, and it's such a shame that many people really believe that racism is prevalent in society, and in the other direction; that people believe that black people are inherently prone to crime.
But now I got curious about how whites perceive black people with regards to crime and the risk of being a target. There's not so much written about it cos it's a bit sensitive.
So could you elaborate plz on this? For example how do people talk about going late at night and how they choose where to go? Do u ever tell each other not to go alone? Are you afraid of thugs? How big parts of the metropolis do you feel is too risky and when? Do u also fink normal people are intimidating to some extent? Is it easy to spot the persons who are dangerous or u are afraid of everybody?
Anything u can tell plz and anybody else please reply for that matter. And perspective from any black person is super interesting.
And obviously take care to express yourself politely and in a sensitive, respectful matter.
