    Statistically speaking, there is no evidence that police disproportionately shoot and kill black suspects. Sure, there are bad apples in the police, but there are bad apples everywhere. This isn't evidence of systemic racism. The reason why Obama and the leftist media is pushing this false narrative is to generate enthusiasm for the elections. They're getting cops killed for political gain, nothing more. Still more blood of innocent men and women on the hands of Obama and the media.
    Obama's teleprompter had its own secret service detail and motorcade. I think that was a waste of taxpayer dollars.

    tl;dr, people are sick of racism and this is an obvious foil to the anti-racism camp

    John McWhorter talks about how this isn't only about race.

    Police Kill Too Many Innocent People—White and Black

    Excerpt:

    In March, something happened in Kentucky that tragically seems, in light of what happened to Alton Sterling and Philando Castile last week, business as usual. Constable Bobby Smith wanted to serve a warrant to Brandon Stanley, who tried to evade him. Smith tracked Stanley down to a convenience store and shot him dead.

    Around the same time in Arizona, Daniel Shaver was playfully waving a pellet gun out of a motel window. A police officer detained him, and despite Shaver complying with all of his demands (there is a video) shot him dead. Also around this time in North Dakota, James Scott, allegedly intoxicated, dropped a gun and fled police officers but refused to put his hands up when detained; they shot him dead.

    The men in these cases were white, not black, and yet all three were killed by police officers under circumstances that would almost surely have elicited indignant protest nationwide if they were black.

    Cases of this kind are dismayingly numerous.
    ...
    If you're really interested in this then you can listen to a discussion on this piece between McWhorter and Dr. Loury of Brown.

    So give the cop a PC citation for acknowledging the disproportionate number of blacks they have to deal with in their line of work. Call him a fuckin' racist if it makes you feel better, it doesn't change the reality of the situation or the nature of their job. Why don't you volunteer to be a cop in an urban neighborhood and show those Nazi skinheads how to police properly instead of posting endlessly in this thread? You're not doing anything to improve the lives of black Americans in poverty or helping the police to maintain law and order. But hey, if continually posting in this thread gives you some sense of purpose or outlet to exert your righteous indignation then more power to you.

    You're lying about what he said.

    "I can give you a really good — a really good idea why it might be that way, Violent tendencies."

    Do you not understand what racism is and isn't?

    Again and again you prove incapable of talking about the substance of the matter and must resort to attacks and lies.
