Pittsburgh's new police chief is being praised by the mayor but criticized by a police union president for being photographed on New Year's Eve holding a sign that says: "I resolve to challenge racism at work."
I applaud him for accepting the fact that there is institutional racism in the criminal justice system. I think that his approach is the correct one. This is not something that can be changed through legislation, it is a cultural thing. We live in a culture where minorities are seen as trouble makers. No legislation can change that. It will take people like this police chief, and minorities that denounce the use of violent protest and looting as a method of advancing their views.
I was with you until the bold. When White people violently protest and loot, it is rarely, if ever, viewed as a statement about White people, in general. Even further, despite the fact that the vast majority of Black people do not commit violence and loot in addition to the fact that Black "leaders" continue to publicly denounce both, Black people are still viewed as as "troublemakers" as a whole. Therefore, Black people denouncing violence and looting is not what is going to change the culture of institutional racism since Black people have been doing that for decades to no avail. What will change this culture is the first thing you mentioned : White people holding each other accountable.
