black people being extinct by the Year 2100.
Let me start off, like every other black writer, by saying that I have nothing against the police. For some reason, people think that if you're pro-black that you're anti-white or anti-cop.
That's just stupid.

First of all, I'm tired of the media regurgitating the same ol' rhetoric that means nothing. I'm tired of hearing "It's time to have the conversation about..." About what? We've been talking for 60 years and nothing has changed. The only difference between 1956 and 2016 is that we have the ability to film the killings today. The only downside to that is how the media exploits it. They're the main reason cops are afraid of black men today. We're portrayed as predators and the police hunts us down as such.
The officers being shot last night in Dallas was a tragedy. The media should be bringing their family together via satellite with the family of the unarmed black men who were recently shot to show their similarities. Instead, they act as if those grieving black families no longer exist. Because the shooting of cops is more important to them than of unarmed black men. Black lives don't matter, but cops lives do. The value of their lives are unequal in the eyes of the media. That nonsense is passed on to the American viewers who ultimately start to subconsciously believe the same thing.
The same police who scream about how snitching is protecting criminals in the black communities are ALWAYS tight-lipped about one of their own who commits an atrocity against an unarmed black man.
Has anyone in the police department ever stood up and said, "my partner was wrong for shooting that man"?
If so, then I'd love to see a video of it because I've never seen it. Police protect their own yet chastise the black community for doing the same. The irony in that is astounding! They want black people to help them find cop killers, but won't help black people find unarmed black men killers.
If you're a black cop and you don't speak out against your own people getting killed, then punch yourself in the throat. It's a shame that some black cops will protect the law enforcement brotherhood while ignoring their own. Is this lady the only cop with guts to speak out against the treatment of her own people? Does it have to be someone in your family before you start to care?
Oh, I almost forgot. The Commander in Chief needs to take a stand for the killing of black men like he has for the LGBT community's rights and health care. Stop ignoring black people, Mr. President. This has nothing to do with gun control unless you're going to start taking guns from the police.
This will never end. It will never end because we will always have an Us. vs. Them mentality. There is a ton of evidence of blacks snitching on blacks for the greater good. When police start doing the same with each other, then maybe some trust can be developed. When police actually start going to jail, then maybe black folks can be alright with the PD. When the media actually bad mouths police like they did Christopher Dorner (a former black cop), then maybe black people will come around.
Oh, and Christopher Dorner was a terrorist for sure. But if you think that he's much different than the cop who shot Philando Castile, then you're not capable of understanding the point that I'm trying to make.
Good and bad doesn't have a color, but we don't treat it that way. If it were, then armed white men wouldn't get taken into custody and bought sandwiches while unarmed black men get taken to the coroner with multiple bullet holes in them.
