Sad thing is, this is not new, and it is prevalent, because it has been for some time now. Blacks are policed differently than any other race. Blacks can’t gather in a park or a public corner without catching the ire of those who are tasked with policing the system. We can witness white men in robes screaming “Nigger go back to Africa!” with police protection and in the same night be asked for identification for being out in our very own neighborhoods. The sad truth is, blacks aren’t protected by this system, but instead victimized by it. It is hard to not be the victim when one is constantly victimized (think stop and frisk). Stop and frisk is the norm, it is just not on the books in most cities. We are routinely placed at the mercy of a system (justice system) that looks upon us as part of a whole. When a black person does anything no matter where we are all placed into that category and placed at the mercy of a system that declares us guilty until we prove we are not.
I say to the people in this country, you should be glad it is about race, because when it is no longer about race, you will face the same brutal system that blacks face today, and you will be screaming for these injustices to stop. But the injustice will not stop, because you allowed it to happen when it did not affect you.
