    No, that is not subjective. I don't know if you are aware of how academic research works, but people who sit on all "sides of the fence" use the same standards of research which is why, in academia, people of all political, religious, racial, economic and other backgrounds can respect each others' work.

There's probably also been a fair amount of racism in police activity in his area due to him as well. That is the saddest part of this.

    That said, the kind of racism demonstrated by stories like this is not the type of racism that concerns me. Such overt racism is mostly a relic of the past and it's literally dying out. What concerns me is the pervasive form of racism in our society that is more covert, or subtle. I'm talking about the type of racism expressed by the vast majority of white Americans where they tell denigrating racist jokes in one breath and then claim to be colorblind in the next.

    Racist cop no, racist police chief? I haven't heard of any, but I have watched Mississippi Burning and one other flick in which cops were blatantly racists, and I've seen the Rodney King beating over and over.

    Weird you'd bring up OJ, the cops basically bungled that investigation from the start, entering and stepping on evidence and spreading it all over the home lie manure.

    Here, we're talking about a police chief with an open mouth and a shallow mind.

    Now, now. What I believe the poster meant was that you need to get with the program. The internalization of racism means to make fun of one's own racial characteristics as a self-defense mechanism, i.e., to take the sting out of a racial characteristic by admitting it in advance. That supposes that one feels some sting over something that is simply a fact of life. I agree that it's much easier to simply enjoy the characteristics that make each of us what we are, and have fun with it. That does not conform to the humorless left's view that all such things are critical and subjects of very deep concern. So "Good day" is probably an appropriate response in the end. You'll make no ground with the sensible argument.

    Yes, I have heard of that and seen it a couple of times. Although they weren't quite white supremacists I did hear racist remarks from them. It changes them and I think it allows them to see the people of that race as individuals and not just the color.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    One of the purposes of laws is to help insure against someone being able to just do as they please, when in a powerful position. This guy's personal opinions don't matter. His actions do. If he is acting outside the law, then that is a problem. He must uphold the law or he is subject to his own legal problems.
