as we've all come to understand thanks to the wisdom of madfatter, the black community's problems are the result of laziness and a lack of responsibility but let's not rush to judgment by assuming a murderous white supremacist with supremacist tattoos on his face and neck has a criminal record because that would be stereotyping and stereotyping is bad
he has white supremacist poo tattooed on his face and neck. while i understand your intent given that, for example, there are child bakers out there walking free with no nazi poo tattooed on their face or necj, i don't think this is the guy to catch a grenade for. pick your spots better, champ
Did you get that implication from me? Bc that's not what I said at all. You won't catch me claiming state has been a cause of the black community's troubles, since, oh the jim crow days, so I can't really answer your question.
Black people have been abused by cops for ... forever. And it's always been opposed by a very vocal minority. My observation is that the left is all of a sudden much less likely to badge worship in situations like these from the people in leadership positions all the way down to lowly forum fodder.
ok this is a problem ive had on this forum before. what is "the left" and why are they "all of a sudden" less likely to "badge worship" with this most recent string of "cops caught in the act of doing their job" when this has been happening one way or another since slavery ended?
as a former liberal i understand if you're talking about opportunist (love me im a) liberals who give police far too much benefit of the doubt while ignoring all historical and present context. however, those who make up the american left as i know it have long been the leading voices to speak out against policing in this country. radical actors and thinkers are wholly ignored here and elsewhere, despite the fact that they are the ones whose lives are ruined and/or ended for actually fighting the structures that make systemic oppression a reality
police are on the frontlines in the fight to preserve the status quo, so i don't get how framing this as a right-left thing is at all beneficial to the right wing
on one hand the cops should have went in with a better plan and not killed anyone but otoh they showed a relatively high degree of restraint (relative to literal executions) after poo got out of hand. does anyone else think more of that family would be dead after the cop got shot with his own gun, if they had failed the paper bag test?
