    *First off I am very educated in this field and all the knowledge I've accumulated in all my time studying social/racial issues before and at University, as well as real world experience, is impossible and unnecessary to link her as "evidence."
    Amazing. I wish I was as educated as you!

    Now anyway, what do you mean, to find a source? If you're looking for "do blacks suffer police brutality more?" I'm sure you'll find something :rolleyes:. You'll just have to put the information together yourself. Like an adult. But no, you are perversely looking for a single web link that takes you to a webpage that says, "blacks suffer racism from cops more than anyone else. Click here to go back to the page you were previously viewing." Like there's a universal go-to website with magical powers to decide things for humanity.
    Oh look, more condescending BS... I wish I was such a well educated adult like yourself! I already acknowledged that black people suffer police brutality/ police shootings more, but just questioned why the automatic conclusion is racism. There's nothing to suggest the cause is racism, and higher crime rates among black people definitely seems like a reasonable explanation. Since I'm such an uneducated child, maybe you could point me in the right direction as to where to look for something that points to racism as a definite conclusion.

    This is something that accumulates overtime and requires constant and numerous comparative research. Thus, most people who are aware blacks have been racially profiled and gunned down more than anyone else are going by how many times you hear it's happened to a black person.

    So there doesn't really even need to be comparisons with who gets it more; "black lives matter" is simply reference to police brutality that was enforced during especially the Jim Crow/segregation era in the United States. You're obtusely asking to be spoon fed what you should already know.
    Yet there is still nothing that can correlate it to racism? You can't use an example from 50 years ago and imply the same climate still exists in modern day America, there is no doubt it has progressed massively in this time.

    There's also Stop and Frisk which was recently filed suit against and outlawed as racist for a mass of professional research that related to weed being illegal and how many times Stop and Frisk became violent, and who were the people mostly being Stopped and Frisked, the reasons why, and which level of government were they prosecuted on compared to whites for the same crime (in the United States whites are more likely to be tried at state/local level for weed, getting as much as probation; while blacks are prosecuted at Federal level for weed, getting years in prison).
    Not really familiar with this, I'll have to look into it more.

    (Original post by LittleMissMay)
    I mean there's so much information and studies that have been done. You want me to do the time-consuming research for you that I've done for too many papers years ago. I also can't link lectures and conversations with professionals I've had.
    And I'm not denying that racism is the cause, I was simply to offering another explanation. Sorry for being critical.

    Or did you want me to prove that black people were over represented in crime? I'm not sure, but let me give you an example anyway.

    "Black people make up 13% of the US population yet were responsible for 52.5% of homicides recorded between 1980-2008. "

    I get that, but I can see why they say "blacklivesmatter", because in the end this is unfortunately what seems to need to be most specified to the US police. They really do seem pretty racist.
    The likelihood of a policeman being assaulted or even shot at rise dramatically if their potential perp is black, it's all well and good to say they should be colorblind, but imagine if it were a member of your family. Would you want them to ignore the facts and take extra risk in the name of PC.

    It seems no other demographic needs to do this, where is the #Irishlivesmatter or #chineselivesmatter. That black people are more likely to be involved in criminality is the problem, that they are most likely to be the shooters, and victim of, gun crime is the issue.

    No white police officer wants to be in a black neighborhood or trying to arrest a black perp, it's a lose/lose scenario. Perhaps they could maintain their own police force in their own communities? If white people are such a problem why on earth are they moving into their communities and why are the people in their home countries flooding white countries?

    In b4 "the institutional racism is why this is the case" and "all we need is education". Also, 3% of UK population and 15% of the prison population, coincidence or is it proof of the institutional racism....... because there couldn't be any other reason :rolleyes:

    You know the sum total of **** all about me.

    You said that the violent thugs smashing up cities and assaulting people is the movement.
    These rioters are angry about their situation in society and how their people are treated. I myself come from a race that has been oppressed. They fight and break out because their emotions take over. Those who take it over the top are not doing it for the movement.

    I would explain in further detail but privileged people like you simply cannot fathom this.

    ????? what are you trying to say

    It's very simple. They are oppressed. People of same race, especially non whites, will feel part of a close community. When one of their brothers or sisters get killed, they're not gonna be happy. The emotion and injustice they experience overwhelms them and rioting seems to be the best way to get the message across. It happens all the time, around the whole world. In the USA, you are more likely to get shot as a black person than a white person, regardless of the fact that black people do more violent crime. Imagine a black guy and white guy in the same situation, say they had a knife. The black guy is more likely to get shot. That's a fact, In fact, you're 9 times more likely. and for so long, like 30 years, no one has addressed this issue. Imagine yourself as a black person growing up in a run down neighborhood, and this is the kind of **** you're born into.

    People keep mentioning black on black crime but

    Black guy kills a black guy: 1dead 1 in prison for life, justice is served.

    White guy kills a black guy with outstanding evidence: Black guy dead, White guy gets rich and goes on vacation. No justice served.

    As long as justice is served there wont be any protest or riots, simple as that

    They are not.
    They commit 4x the violent crime and are shot at 2.45 times more which is a problem but they are not being targeted, I use violent crime as I don't think anyone would be happy the police shooting someone for littering.

    No one can say things were fair in the past as they weren't but that is a different question than what Blm claims to want which is equality today so historical issues don't come into play.
