    There's a link to a PDF that goes into the study more in-depth.
    Your link tells of evidence of discrimination, but it doesn't say what that evidence is.

    White people do this "unnecessary shooting" narrative thing too, when their interests are engaged. Case in point...

    I married into a family of criminals. Well, my wife's immediate family were straight, but almost all of her uncles, cousins and etc were career criminals, some of them very serious felons with ties to what passes for organized crime locally. You can imagine how awkward family get-togethers were.

    One of her uncles had been killed by the police a decade before, and they still carried the torch of him being a martyr who was needlessly murdered. As the story goes, he was drunk and disorderly and pulled a knife on the cops, who shot him from twenty feet away when he "charged". The family says he would never have actually stabbed anyone, why did they have to shoot him six times it was just a small pocket knife, he was drunk and they should have taken that into account, etc etc.... then they tried to bring ME into it and ask ME if I would have shot him!

    I said "Whoa, hey.... I wasn't there, I don't know what happened exactly, so I can't really say what should or should not have happened." That answer didn't satisfy them much, but it was a much better answer than the raw truth... which would have been "if he'd charged me with a knife as the cops said he did, I'd have lit him up too."
    Ayup - 21 foot rule.

    In other words, that happens for a reason-even if you dont agree or know why.

    See my sig and think about it for a minute. See if you can figure out why I told you to.
    Read the study I posted earlier. I'm not particularly interested in reading whatever hackish drivel you or someone else has to say about the "political left."

    That speaks directly to physical violence.

    Facts are stubborn things, Kobie.

    No they aren't-they are saying these race baiters contributed to the situation-and they are right.

    Read the study I linked to so you can actually comprehend what I was talking about rather than throwing out-of-context numbers at me that have NOTHING to do with what I was talking about. Jesus, show a shred of ****ing honesty for ONCE when dealing with someone else's arguments. It's Christmas.

    When is it ok to talk about race? When you want to? Because unless you're saying racism is dead, then it's got to be ok to talk about racism at some ****ing point.

    So please, in all of your infinite wisdom on race, when is it ok for black people to talk about their feelings on racism in the United States?
