    You think dumping water on cops (during a heatwave) is on the level of police choking someone to death for selling cigarettes in front of a liquor store?

    It’s true.

    They’re also involved in disproportionately more crimes, and the police officers that fatally shoot them are also more likely to be African-American or Hispanic versus white.

    Reality is such a bummer right?

      Yeah, white supremacist systems don’t exclusively need white people - that’s how whites could be a minority in the Caribbean or Algeria or South Africa but the places were still white supremacist with non-white police or non-white job overseeers.

      Stupid question, what is white supremacy? Is it the same thing as western culture? Honestly I don’t really know what we were talking about

      OP
      Did you watch the video? I’m surprised at the restraint the police officers showed. But yeah, so much for black males fearing for their lives when encountering police...

    African American murders are also disproportionately targeting African Americans on a scale of roughly 100x the consequences of police brutality.

    Black people are 25% of police shootings while committing 40% of the violent crime. Logic would say that those numbers should be roughly equal.

      Heart Disease kills more people than the tumor in your urethra, so stop complaining about it.

      Good analogy - no one listens to the guy fundraising for urethral cancer when it statistically is insignificant.
