Time to END racism

Something I've been wondering about... Do black people tend to view the police department as a sort of Gestapo?

I would say that about covers it.

It varies of course to some extent, depending on the city or town....

Also European and American racism are different. They tend to build gas chambers or fight genocidal wars or ship people to Siberia. We do lynchings and beat people up. The oppressed respond slightly differently to different forms of oppression and terrorism.

But I imagine the basics are pretty similar.

Probably most, it's what they've been taught for years.

The police using pistols and billy clubs as teaching tools.

Think about it: every black male gets "the talk" in his teen years.  It's all about interfacing with the police.  It's embarrassing that anyone has to be as deferential to any person or groups as "the talk" teaches black men to be, but "the talk" has been necessary to keep them alive or at least not abused legally or physically.  How would any of us react to that?
