I really can’t just ignore the other side of the story.
There is a large black community in US who because of socio-economic factors(@Josh used the word ‘inherent’, no i don’t think it’s inherent, rather because of circumstances), are rather aggressive or more prone to be involved in crime.
Take out racism, replace blacks with Indians & there will be still be killings because They don’t have gun control. Every fucker regardless of their spending capacity possess some form of lethal weapon.
Cops are already on their toes because they don’t know who is a bad guy & who is good.
In this situation, if they come across an Indian and if Indians have statistically committed more crime than any other group of people, I bet that cop would immediately up his guard, even if he was not a racist.
When you discuss such sensitive matter, you take everything into consideration.
I just can’t go ‘Oh black people are all innocent’
What we are exposed to is Police fuck ups & some blatant racism; but what we are not exposed to are instances where their cautious nature around black guys have lead to positive outcomes & arrest.
If this situation is to change, then black community needs a change in perception at the very least. Improve the socio economic factors so there are less instances of crime & overall perception/mild racist opinions like mine is changed.
Germany didn’t become one of better nation post Hitler in one decade. It took them decades of good work.
