    You dont even get it, but this backwards mentality is exactly why these people are rioting. When politicians have this backward mentality, it dismisses the oppression many blacks face in our country due to their skin color.

    And what do the statistics show about violent crime between the two races?

    Not condoning the actions but what do you know about being profiled? What do you know about racism? What do you know about cops brutalizing your race and assuming you're guilty before they even arrest you? I can't even quantify how frustrating that has to be for a whole race of people.

    Are black people and white people treated equally by police?

    How do these things change the culture? How does looting and rioting help bridge the gap in cop relations with minorities?

    This is the issue. People throw stats out there, it's ok to help illustrate something, but thats not what any argument should hinge on.

    It's the dehumanization that a demographic regularly faces on a clearly much higher scale than the rest of us. We've made strides as a society, and that's great, but this is still a very real issue.

    So you would sooner believe blacks are out of control rather than admit there is a systemic problem?

    The looting isn't about bridging a gap, it's about releasing frustration and anger. It doesn't help relations between cops and blacks, it's a destructive reaction to a destructive action. A destructive action which itself doent help the relations between cops and blacks.

    Totally get that. No doubt. And I will.never pretend to be in that situation, but I'm sure these past few days will definitely progress that cause though.

    I'm not interested in playing the moving the goalpost game.

    Fact is blacks make up 24% of those killed by police yet only make up 13% of the population.

    Another fact is police are piss poor trained and kill way to many people, regardless of race, unnecessarily.

    If you're okay with that, that's on you.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.
