Is the death of Mr. Gray going to give black people another reason to complain?

I get it. Some cops are asssholes, We all know this. I just don t understand why the media turns this into a race thing. The same thing happened with the death of Mr. Brown. Whenever a white police officer kills a black man, it makes national news. If a black police officer, killed a white man, it would barely make the local news. I feel like we are just giving black people, more reasons to complain. Like the media wants to keep that racial barrier strong. Let s just see this for what it is. A man killed another man. Enough of this black and white logistics bullshitt.

    All black. All killed by police.

    This is a freaking "race thing".

    • queenreina5 years agoReport

      Find me a list of white people killed by police in 2015. By age. Their names. Then, I'll consider you point a compelling argument.

  • 5 years ago

    I guess your town doesn't have a very good news station. Any time a cop shoots anyone here, we hear about it immediately, no matter what the race of the people involved. If you think they are concentrating only on white on black killings, it's because there are a lot more of those than the other way around.

      Find a list with a hundred names of white people killed by police from this year, and I'll consider your point a compelling argument.

    What you fail to see my obtuse minion is that this has been going on for a very long time. The prevalence of cameras is just now exposing it.

      Because I would murder you. And how can I be a minion if I don't follow orders huh? I guess I'm a minion in your imagination. That's all right, we all gotta believe in something. Except for me. I can handle logic, and have no need to delude myself with idiotic fantasies.

    Certain people are desperately clinging to their precious victim status anyway they can, not all of them are black either.
