One Is Black And One Is White

By now the whole world knows, if you live in America there are two sets of rules by our law enforcement agencies, and judicial systems. One set of rules are used for Blacks, and another set of rules are used for whites; here's proof: A Black man, Rayshard Brooks use a taser against police and he's shot three times in the back while running away, he dies from his gunshot wounds by police. A white man, Mark Antunez use a taser against police, injuring and incapacitating the police officer; the white man is arrested unharmed.

What we saw in the two videos is nothing new, this kind of different behavior when it comes to Black suspects and white suspects were happening long before camera phones. We hear all the time that better police training is needed, if you believe better police training is needed, you have to believe that white police officers and Black police officers undergo different training. The thing is, we never hear of or see a Black police officer fatally shooting a white person in the back while running away. We also hear, "it's only a few bad cops." This video proves that's an outright lie. A 75 year old man was brutally pushed down by police officers, as the the elderly man lay there bleeding out of his ears, a lot more than just a few bad cops walk by while the elderly man lay there critically wounded. This is not a problem that Black people needs to solve, this is a problem that America needs to solve.
