    but you would have to still agree that red-lining made it harder for minorities to achieve financial success even if it makes sense in your mind why they did it

    Gotta get back to work but I will hit you back later if that’s ok. Nice to have a civil discussion. I fully understand I may be wrong but I will give you my point of view

    This is the important number to be looking at, IMO. And it can be broken down even still, as just because someone is unarmed, doesn’t mean the killing was not justified i.e. trying to steal the cops gun or physically assaulting the officer to where he is afraid for his life.

    Agreed, so 10 out of how many interactions of police vs blacks that an argument could be made that were not justified. FTR Tucker Carlson broke down these 10 last night, per FBI reports...some were absolutely not justified(Floyd), but some were an officer suspecting that person was armed, they weren't, but found a gun later, etc I'm not excusing any of these instances, no person deserves to die, but if we're going to have an honest conversation here as to the frequency of police brutality regarding blacks that's important to point out.

    Edit: also I'd like to add that having more officers involved in these situations could be a solution in that higher up officers can help make quick judgements or tell an officer acting unlawful to stop(NYC under Gulliana used this method) as in the case of Floyd.

    I think we can all agree that one unjustified killing is too many, but to just post population statistics or crime statistics as proof of anything can be misleading, and the media will use misleading stats in a second if it means ratings.

    I know you are going to get very mad at me again. It is that you get upset at being called a racist but say there is systemic racism in the country. You know we all are responsible for the systems that are in our communities and that makes all of us racist?

    Not mad at all. I said earlier, I get you now and when I read your opinions, I consider the source. I had no intention of continuing the conversation and that’s on me.

    you have a great day.

    I get you now, too. I made a mistake because I thought my anger at your comments was because I assumed you were one of those pompous assholes that think they are superior. I get you now and when I read your opinions I consider the source. I had no intentions of offending you and continuing the conversation.

    you have a great day.
