    re: Police chief's anti-racism sign lauded, criticized[W:81]

    Irrespective of the worthiness of the sentiment, how tone deaf is it for a "new" police chief to hold up a sign that implies there's a racism problem with the police force he now leads?

    I'm not American, but I've heard nothing about racism problems in the Pittsburgh police force and I've been to Pittsburgh a few times and it seems like a terrific city to me - but then I'm not familiar with what may be problem areas of Pittsburgh and all cities have problem areas. Now, if it was Philadelphia, that might be a whole other story.

    Would have been far wiser to walk that sign into a private meeting with his officers and command and start a dialog with them about whatever issues exist and what he, as chief, can do to help bring about change.

    Cops dont deal with scum every day... Ticket after ticket after ticket after ticket. I could see if you said prison guard. But cops deal with the normal average everyday person everyday.

    Read article here: Police chief's anti-racism sign lauded, criticized

    Is anyone surprised that any police union president would react like this? I'm not.

    Ignoring and denying the existence of racism doesn't make it go away. We must confront it and drive it out.

    Not surprisingly, the righttard contingent is having a fit about the mere suggestion that there is such a thing as racism. (Unless it's anti-white).

    No one is having a fit. We're just pointing out this guy's blatant stupidity.

    There's no way a leader can command respect, when his first public act is to besmirch the character of the people under his charge.

    No he is not. Read the words on the sign again, it does not say anything even remotely like that.
