    You stereotype policemen in the US based on a handful of killings, which are because of the policemen stereotyping black people...

    Hmm
    ok

    If someone had a gun at night I would want to be able to shoot to protect myself, are police officers supposed to wait until they get shot before they can react?
    So shoot a child to kill him when there was no proof that he had an actual gun? They were going by details given to them by a caller to which the operator responded (about the boy) "is he White or Black"?

    Did I say just Africa? Ankara, Beirut, and Mombasa are all considered to be major cities in their respective countries. They have all been targeted. Looks like someone is not very well informed geographically.



    There have been more acts of terrorism committed in 1 year in Ankara and Beirut than in Paris in 123 years. Mombasa is not in any way a major country, do not lie or delude yourself just to pass a point across.

    There was proof he had a gun the caller had seen it.

    Yes let's not ask a question that can reduce the amount of suspects, we should stop giving descriptions of suspects as it is wrong for the police to look for a black boy when it is a black boy involved in the incident.

    Don't you see the hypocrisy? Some policemen see a black person with a gun, and think "sh*t, he's gonna shoot us" - and some innocent black people get killed. You see a policeman and think "he's gonna murder some black people, because that's how they like to spend their time"
    lol whatever.

    It's you have no argument and rely only shear ignorance and stupidity to convey your incredibly flawed points.

    ??? I have no idea what point you are trying to convey.
    White privilege does exist- You have police shooting unarmed young black men for no reason which clearly shows that white privilege is a thing
    You mean like in Baltimore, where a black police chief, a black mayor, a predominantly black city council and a predominantly black police force caused the locals to have a huge amount of rioting over the racist mostly-black police?


    I don't mean that in a rude way, but merely to stop and think that there may be more than simple 'White privilege' at play that causes that.

    Poverty in the modern world perpetuates poverty. That is a simple truism - Poor white boys in Britain have less than a 1/10 chance of going on to further education, as an example, and on a per capita basis, white males have less chance of getting in to Cambridge or Oxford.

    Black communities tend to congregate, and tend to be poor - This tends to ghettoization, generational poverty and increased crime. This isn't unique to the black community - Look at Irish communities in the 1930s or refugee communities in Europe now.

    If you are passionate about the plight of the black community - And I think you are - Look more at the causation of generational poverty and come up with a solution for it. That will help everyone - Black, white, native or any other race.

    Or you can continue to blame 'White Privilege', which will not resolve the issue. You will continue to have generational poverty which will continue to cause unrest(And has in almost every large community that had self-segregation and generational poverty in history), will continue to cause civil unrest and will continue to on to your children and your children's children.

    The choice is ultimately yours - Do the collective you want to change the situation or simply want to be excused for an ultimately impotent rage?

    Are police men doing their job when they are shooting unarmed black men?


    You're making it out as if the people they are shooting at aren't crime committing thugs.

    Paris terrorist attacks in the past year and a half = 2

    Ankara terrorist attacks in the past year and a half = 2

    Beirut terrorist attacks in the past year and a half = 1

    These are generally peaceful and vibrant cities. Your ignorance does not turn them into hotbeds of terrorism. And just because you have not heard of Mombasa does not mean it isn't considered to be a major city in Kenya. You have already proven yourself to be very uneducated.

    The caller could have been anyone. Is it really that easy to get a kid shot by the police in America? Are you in your right mind to say that shooting a child to kill is justified based on a phone call?

    These justifications just prove what the OP has been trying to say.

    LOL, you are such an utter moron.

    I said terrorists attacks in 1 year. I didn't say THIS YEAR.:facepalm2::facepalm2::facepalm2:


    When you have time, go and research the amount of terrorist attacks that took place in Beirut and Ankara in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2006, when the war on terror was in full force.


    And yes I've heard of Mombasa, and no it's not even remotely a major country.

    So Madam where was the coverage and massive up-roar when Bryce williams a BLACK man, shot and killed 2 white innocent news reporters in an act he claimed would spark a race war?


    Why didn't the media cover the story?

    Where they afraid about the fact that liberals only care about gun violence when a black person is killed by a white person?

    I was talking about white privilege in regrades to white policeman shooting down unarmed blacks for no reason... I don't know why you felt it was necessary to type all of that.

    I'm not supporting the murder of the little kid, but why would a 12 year old kid be playing with a toy gun?

    And why didn't he listen to the officers when they told him to drop the weapon and get on the floor.

    How were the officers supposed to tell the difference?

    :lol: that coming from someone who can't tell non-Western countries apart!

    1 year could mean any year, I chose last year. That does not change the fact that these cities are generally peaceful and stable. The so-called War on Terror hardly affected Turkey at all.

    Sure, Kenyans would not consider their second largest city to be a major city at all. I hope you are trolling, because it's sad to think that someone could really be this clueless.
