I was trying to find what Ben Schipero was quoting when he stated that black males are 2,000 times more likely to be killed by another black male than a police officer.
Instead, I found a story from The NY Times echoing the same thought:
If an officer kills someone unecessarity, they should face justice. Murder is murder. But this needs to be dealt with on an individual basis.
I find it ironic that Pro Athletes in sports ( which is made up of mostly African Americans) are protesting social inequality by disrespecting the flag. To me, it makes no sense. Would they protest a far greater issue (black on black crime) by the same method?
I’m all for Justice and people being treated fairly. I agree with those who say disrespecting the flag, is not the way to facilitate change.
