    I noted that the author failed to establish that such a privilege actually exists.

    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.
    being from Pittsburgh its a good sign and a good attitude . . . .

    anybody trying to spin this into a negative or make retarded strawmen that the sign clearly doesnt say is a moron and part of the problem.

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.

    It's only "tone deaf" if the tone is being set by anti-Black racists.

    Better yet, don't commit crimes then complain about the consequences.

    Per the Libbo SOP, when one is unable to form an intelligent argument, he, or she, feels compelled to resort to insults.

    This comes as no surprise to anyone.

    The protestors are embarrassing themselves, daily. People are becoming tone deaf because of their idiotic tactics.
