  • Police officers are racism due to lack of knowledge

    Many of us even black folks unfortunately due to media and stereotypes that is spoken by everyday people due to racism that we are taught even at a young age. Many cops and everyday citizens see a black folk who is walking down the street with a hoodie or running assumed "what is he running from ?? Did he steal something?" Many of you will be like"um I never done this?!?!" Which is great if that's true but think about this again. If a white male was running in the street many of you wouldn't even turn a head. Even Hollywood portrayed people of color as criminals instead of good people like how white people are seen we give white people power to make them believe they're superior. We put white people on top ; treat them and see them as better than all of us. Which goes back to my statement many cops especially white cops have this stereotype that we learn from the very young age that black people and people of color are criminals. I do believe we can UNLEARN racism it's not hate that's fueling racism it's ignorance. The lack of knowledge and the way we portray people of color. Racism unfortunately is so lodged into many white folks brains that they will continue to not understand or want to understand racism because they simply can NOT see racism where it's due. I'm sure there's many white cops who have stereotyped black people not knowing what exactly they have done due to the fact we see black people as criminals as the norm. If you do not believe me, please take time to educate yourself by researching Jane Elliot a wonderful woman who has and will committed the rest of her life unfortunately to fight against racism.

  • The Caucasian officers are the ones who do the most exaggerated actions.

    I know police officers are from different ethnicities but the majority of Caucasian officers are the ones who actually are racist. They put the blame on African Americans and Latinos who supposedly "commit the most horrendous crimes." Which is not entirely true. Going back to the Sandy Hook shooting, was that an African-American or Latino-American committing the crime? No obviously not. Not all officers blame the minorities known as African Americans or Latinos or any other ethnicity, it's only the Caucasian ones who do, and that's also called racism. Those officers only blame the ones who look like they'll actually commit the crimes but us minorities are also American and also work hard to support our families who are also struggling alongside with us just like any other family. There's proof to show how hard working minorities are, looking at how some people are homeless today and don't have enough money for themselves, at least Latinos try to sell something to make a bit of their own little bit of wage to at least survive the day. Meanwhile, other Americans are only just standing there with a sign because they don't know how to make money. All of you who say they don't know how to make money if you were to become homeless, learn a little bit from us minorities who make up the majority of the economy and the population.

  • Media's Effects on Police Interactions

    The idea that all police are racist and murderers and horrible people is absolutely ludicrous. There are very few cases of actual racism, and those cases have been dealt with. The amount of times I have seen on the news "unarmed black teen brutally murdered" is ridiculous. My own father is a police lieutenant, and has been shot by a criminal (he survived). After he was shot, his partner shot the criminal. His partner and my dad then received death threats for weeks because the media came out with a story saying the guy was and innocent 15 year old and unarmed. He was actually 25, had 3 hostages, and clearly shot an officer. Just recently, Michael Bennett, an NFL player, claimed to be assaulted and arrested in Las Vegas in a casino after a shooting. He claimed "racism" and tried to launch an investigation. They found video of Bennett hiding behind slot machines, then, as police entered the building, he ran, jumped over the police barrier, and tried to fight his way through another group of police. The police arrested him because he was running away from the police after a shooting. That sounds very suspicious, and if I were the cops, I would think that he is running away from police because he is guilty. In the video, there were at LEAST 20 other black guys in the room. If it was about the color of their skin, I don’t they would have targeted just him.

  • The United States Police force as a whole is not racist

    While it is almost undeniable that racism is still alive in the United States, it is unfair to say that the US Police force as a whole is racist. There are bad/racist police officers out there, but most of those who wear the badge are good people who approach challenging situations without bias and try to provide justice.

  • They risk their lives every single day on duty.

    No. They are not racist. We are a country that has freedom for ALL races. Every single day Officers rish their lives every day. Its 2016 people not 1962. We don't have segregation. Blacks go to school with whites and go to the same restaurants. And if cops were racist they would spray african Americans with fire hoses and shoot every single one of them. And also, when that officer recieved a call that Alton Sterling threatened them, it's just someone trying to start drama. When that black man had his arms up teaching a disabled kid, he was shot. Again, a citizen trying to start tension. NEVER think they are racist because they arent and they risk their lives every single day.

  • Maybe not racist, but possibly biased.

    Most police agencies target individuals of lower economic status (the poor) than more affluent persons. Is this because poor people are more inclined to commit crimes or is it easier for the judicial system to grind poor people up because they don't have the means to defend themselves in court. It's no mystery that police have quotas for arrest and tickets. Police are evaluated on the number of arrests conducted. So I would say racist no, biased against the poor yes (as the entire judicial system).

  • Media is causing all the problems.

    Western media only tells stories that sell and if a white guy was killed by an officer then you would never hear of it in the news but as soon as a black person gets killed, it's all over the world and these protest loving coons start taking to the streets saying that black lives matter. Me being a black man myself, I can assure you that ALL lives matter and this is touching the same thoughts and feelings of feminists who only care of their kind. The media has made us think that all officers are white and all victims are black but that is totally not the case. Officers are not racist, the media wants them to be. Or at least portrayed as such.

  • The police are not being racist

    Police take physical action against whites every day in America. These encounters are never shown or talked about because this is just the police doing their jobs. However, if they have to take action against a person of color, it is blown out of proportion and shown all over the media. We should let the police do their jobs.

  • I can't go that far, but there is a serious problem, which is the "Us vs. Them" mentality

    It would be completely unfair to lump all police officers in America with the worst police officers in America. And of course, not every police officer is white. There are black officers, hispanic, men and women, etc. There is a serious issue that cannot be ignored. There is a huge cultural problem where police will protect their own at the expense of objectivity. You could see it in the interactions between the NYPD and Mayor DeBlasio in New York. There are times when police officers act unjust and their colleagues rush to their defense instead of seeking justice and the truth. That is a culture that sorely needs to change, because the purpose of police officers is to protect and serve all of us, not just each other.

  • Police in the United States are racist

    Generally speaking, police in the United States are not racist. Everyone can cherry pick examples, but in today's politically correct climate, the most egregious cases get widespread media attention. This has much to do with every act by society being taped, snap chatted or otherwise virally spread across the web. People make broad generalizations about groups to further a political goal.

  • Percentage in every profession

    There's a percentage of every profession that is racist. It's still unavoidable, unfortunately, in 2016. Cops are generally good people that just want to get through their day like the rest of us. There is no reason to mistrust them trying to frame you for the big bag of weed on your passenger seat just because they noticed your headlight was out on that car without a muffler.
