Any white cop will tell you it does.  You can’t predict how a Black will act, they’re just weird, so you must detain him first to protect your own safety… and only then, determine if they’ve ever committed a crime…

And no, you don’t have to do that to white people they tell you….

This brought to mind something quite weird…

Have you ever seen a Black guy walk through an all white neighborhood?  All the white people stare at him… No one says “hey, yo, what’s up bro?  How you feelin’ today?”  The phones ring behind closed curtains as old lady calls old lady… “Better be careful out there, there’s a black guy loose”…  It’s like: put one black guy on the street and everyone gets panicky…

This is fact.  You don’t see that in all-black neighborhoods… When a lone white guy walks down Spruce Street in Wilmington, everyone out on their stoops, calls out to him… Kids run up, “hey, Mister.”  Old folks holler from their porches… “Hot enough for you out there?”  Black men on the corner all say, “hey, what’s happenin’, bro?”…  The atmosphere is a community oriented around love and they open up their hearts (providing you aren’t police)… But it is fact: when a white guy walks down a Black neighborhood street, everyone doesn’t assume he is there to commit crime… But that is EXACTLY what goes on in white neighborhoods…..

Why is that?  Why do whites as a rule get all uppity around blacks, but blacks don’t around whites?

The phenomena which is very prevalent, gives credence to all those cops killing black men because of their skin color… Their fear of the black man is innate.  That “I’d better shoot first or he’ll kill me” attitude causes all of them to respond to fear in a crises and not with ones head…

And this is embarrassing for most white people to acknowledge but they do admit it.  They may not have racist bone in their body, but they KNOW, their community is very scared of black people… Whereas black communities will invite white strangers into to a home BBQ if one is going on… ( especially if they bring booze).

And if you come from that mentality of instinctive fear, you are going to make the assumption that guy is going to kill you first and ask questions later; “Ka Pow”… no questions needed now…

How do you diffuse this?

I believe you can ratchet things downward by asking someone to explain how a gene affecting pigment in your skin makes anyone more dangerous than someone lacking that gene…

I think if we all apply science to this problem and realize that it is just a gene that makes skin dark; no gene is going to make someone kill you first before you have time to assess the threat… any more than the lack of that pigment gene is going to make them kill you first… Pigment has nothing to do with wanting to kill, it’s there to protect skin from excessive sun… Otherwise white people would be locking up freckled Irish, out of fear over what might happen… “THEY HAVE DARK SPOTS ON THEIR SKIN!!! ”

Our race problem is strictly based on myths we carry from our childhoods.  Like Black people are dangerous; … Or white people are always nice to each other and always respect authority… of course neither are true… What is true is that most people do respect authority out of self preservation; a learned trait it comes from their experience in life, not a pigmentizing gene.

When we collectively come to the realization that race is arbitrarily decided by skin color, (it could be eye color, or foot size) then we will have overcome its influence… I know such success is kind of hard to accomplish when you have one major party’s Presidential candidate saying the exact opposite…

But if you were a white cop, and upon walking up to a car see it’s a black person and right then, take a deep breath and pretend its a white person like your Uncle Joe, then the tension with which you approach that car, is the same as if you approached some white old man with freckles…  The person in that car, who’s apprehensive and afraid you are going to go berserk as in those videos, all because he was driving while black, relaxes and diffuses as well for he looks at you as a black cop, same skin color as him…

If every cop did this exercise upon approaching a suspect or someone pulled over, we just might get along a little better…

Research has proven that blacks do get treated more meanly than any other race… We have that data… They are indeed roughed up a lot more than any other race…

Race Baiting

The severity seems to be white peoples’ fault; those same white people who freak out every time a black person strolls through their neighborhood and whisper:  “what’s he doing here?”
