totally agree. And this is exactly what this situation needs, discussion and understanding from both sides. Not knee jerking and mob mentality.As a (fairly) conservative black I would argue there's a case for both a race issue and a culture issue in overall society, however you're absolutely right that the race side of the issue isn't really present in uk policing or black deaths, atleast nowhere near the sort of level as people would like to believe, and the aspects that maybe are present in policing ie stop and search statistics, are a result of our own actions and not of a racist system. As you said unfortunately we are doing that to ourselves because of the culture so many people love to glorify, to then shift the blame to the system when there's consequences.
So essentially the things people are protesting about ie police brutality, are the completely wrong things/not even real issues, and as said this is being fed to them by the media who will do absolutely anything to discredit the system and are essentially using black people as their current ammunition of choice.
don’t get me wrong of course there are people who are racist and there are Cops who are bad, and should be punished and investigated accordingly. Police are in a position of power and should have respect but they also need to have our trust and that trust erodes for various diffeeent reasons.
We can all agree Floyd didn’t deserve to die the way he did for the crime he committed. But again we have to wait for the full investigation and trial. Looting and burning local communities, killing security guards and cops, does nothing but fuel ignorance and hatred.
We need to learn from history or we will be condemned to repeat it. Censoring the past does nothing but fuel ignorance. Yes there was a lot of bad stuff happening throughout the time of history in various countries.
Its interesting that the African American Council was booed when they spoke out suggesting that the movement had been taken over by Antifa for other reasons.
David Dorn was shot down protecting his community and not a word was said in the media.
Follow the money, look at where the donations go from BLM.... Democrat party. And look where David Dorns family are putting their donations, crime stoppers and back stoppers, speaks volumes.
