The issue with policing in America has everything to do with overloading the purpose and duty of a cop by abandoning gender roles and the direct consequence of that abandonment.If all Americans of color disappeared tomorrow (rapture/exodus/aliens/whatever) would the American cops still act like weaponized thugs or would they suddenly become all about serving and protecting the public? Seems to me that you have a quality of police problem underlying the claimed racism and if you solved that, the whole racism issue would be significantly reduced.
Good question...and one I don't have an answer to. I've already told you what I think. They spend far more time promoting the Great. Gay. Agenda. than they do concerning themselves with black lives. They are only truly worthwhile when confronting police brutality issues.Why aren't they
do you have any stats to back that claim up?
These numbers are meaningless. Blacks commit much more crime than whites and naturally have more police interactions. It also doesn’t account for resisting arrests which some studies show blacks do much more.This chart shows the percent disparity between each state's African American population and percentage of blacks killed by police in 2019.www.statista.com
Black Americans 2.5X More Likely Than Whites to Be Killed By Police
Protests around the United States are boiling over after Minneapolis man George Floyd was killed by police. Floyd, accused of using a counterfeit $20 bill, had his neck compressed by an officer’s knee while in handcuffs for roughly nine minutes before later dying. Other recent instances of racism against African Americans in the country have led to massive protests against police brutality and systemic, institutional racism that many feel have gone unchecked for decades.
In 2019 data of all police killings in the country compiled by Mapping Police Violence, black Americans were nearly three times more likely to die from police than white Americans. Other statistics showed that black Americans were nearly one-and-a-half times more likely to be unarmed before their death.
Most states’ police forces killed black people at a higher rate per capita than white people, with Illinois, New York and Washington D.C. carrying some of the largest discrepancies by state. D.C., with a black population of nearly 50 percent, had 88 percent of all police killings be against black Americans – a discrepancy of over 38 percentage points. Rhode Island had the largest discrepancy of 44 points, albeit with a much smaller sample size of four police killings in 2019 – two of them being African American.
While much of the western states have smaller discrepancies overall than eastern ones, large cities like Reno, Oklahoma City and Anaheim all had higher police killing rates of black people than the total U.S. murder rate. Others above the U.S. murder rate were St. Louis, Madison, Wis., Scottsdale, Ariz. and two others.
Overall, in 2019, 24 percent of all police killings were of black Americans when just 13 percent of the U.S. population is black – an 11-point discrepancy. Mapping Police Violence also showed that 99 percent of all officers involved in all police killings had no criminal charges pressed against them.
you are correct that per capita black men commit more crime and without getting into the reasons why that is at the minute.These numbers are meaningless.

Question: Do you accept that US police kill people who are not representing a threat great enough that justifies lethal force?
