.... the overuse of stop and search techniques against black and multi-ethnic groups.
And some police forces are still "dragging their feet" when it comes to recording and reporting racist crimes, it was claimed.
It raised concerns about the disproportionate number of black and Asian people stopped and searched in most force areas, the high proportion of black men recorded on the DNA database
Must have missed it.
No problem tho.
Here's my beliefs and experiences with this.
White people (great how I'm labeled as nothing more than a generic color) aren't oppressed in most instances, although I do think we get a raw deal in the blame department.
Often, the crap our ancestors went through is marginalized, which in many instances mimics the often cited Jim Crow laws.
In the end though, I think it's 80% culture you're raised in, which determines your likelihood of success and little has to do with race.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
as for the DNA database...if so many black men weren't criminals perhaps they wouldn't be so highly represented on the database. furthermore, unless you plan on being a criminal, what is the problem with your DNA being on file? It is standard practice in the military. My DNA has been on file since 2000 and I have somehow managed to not be wrongly convicted of a crime.
