    Though I have a feeling it will just end with people calling each other names.
    I think you are right.

    And so do manufactured narratives about " Police brutality " and " racism ".

    All this nonsense detracts from the real issues that are affecting black communities.

    More blame centered around lies while Black on black violence, poverty, high drop out rates and high levels of illegitimacy go on ignored.

    It just guarantees that nothing will change.

    You are acting as if police brutality and racism don't actually exist.

    You have to ask what is enabling the police to be militarized and where the training is coming from

    You also have to ask why blacks and Hispanics are succumbing to higher arrests. There is institutional racism that is a direct result of social policy, the policies in place are doing the exact opposite of the policies attention. The war on drugs is destroying the communities, and there is a lot more police officers hired into higher crime places causing arrests and violence to increase.

    We can't blame the everyday cop, we can't blame the American people, what we need to do is blame the policies that are causi all of this to occur

    For the most part, I absolutely agree with that.

    Boy, you dont know **** about me or where I was raised, how I was raised or what circumstances I grew up in and around. But that chip on your shoulder is certainly indicative of who and what you are. Run along now. We are having an actual conversation.
    Aaaaannnd here comes the white defensiveness. Like clockwork.

    And no, I am not going to just go away. Not until you deal with your gross lack of understanding of race and racism.

    Nothing in my comments to you is defensive, nor is there a reason to BE defensive. Its entirely comical you interpreted the conversation I was in as defensive. Like I said...speaks VOLUMES of you.

    Knock it off. You're in no position to lecture me. Read this and get back to me.
    The map your source uses is from 1936.

    That doesn't change the definition, nor the existence, of redlining. The map is an example, guy.
