if cops emptied their clips into a dude with a bb gun and we didn't have bodycams, we might well be having another explosive discussion about rules of engagement and endemic culture problems in our nation's law enforcement. instead we have body cams and indisputable proof that this moron jerked a pistol out of his pants and pointed it at cops four feet away. make them mandatory, install massive penalties for tampering with them, and give training and engagement protocol a massive review. then maybe our police killing rate will drop to a ranking respectable for a modern nation.
i feel like this post could be awesome as hell if you went into more detail on some of these things. i don't know dick about the abct theory or what ludwig lachmann's works contribute. care to contextualize and unpack for those of us less well versed in economic theory?
it's a desperate red herring meant to convince the easily-convinced that black peoples' problems are just an extension of what they've always been, which is equal parts black people, so we can all just shrug off the annoying peripheral cry of injustice and keep sharing memes from conservativedaily on facebook
no, the point is people are trying to marginalize the political violence and structural bias experienced by african american people by suggesting that black people cause black peoples' big nasty historical problems so it's a reasonable extension that they should just blame themselves for their problems in the present.
