    Yes, all victims of police brutality suffer similarly, but black people are disportionately targeted by police and suffer more. Pretending this doesn't happen due to your own personal biases doesn't change the fact that it does happen. BLM is not a hate group. It's this dog whistle BS that shuts down nearly all discussions in this matter, because a small minority of people show up to a protest and decide to cause anarchy doesn't negate the large majority of the protests who showed up and protested non-violently. That blacks are oppressed in modern day America is not "jargen", it's an unfortunate fact of American Society that the majority of it's citizens recognize and ignore, and a loud minority chooses to pretend doesn't exist. If blacks aren't committing more crimes than how do I explain the numbers? What numbers? You've provided zero numbers. But let's dive into that. 13% of the population doesn't commit more crimes than 64%. That is literally impossible. And it preys upon a certain inherent bias against a specific demographic that allows an individual to actually believe this to be the issue without putting any thought into it. The other issue is where are the statistics coming from. Crime statistics are supposed to be provided to the FBI, yet very few police departments provide this data. This leaves us with incomplete data that each political party cherrypicks parts of to suit their needs. Please provide these completely accurate numbers you keep citing, I'd love to see it. It should go without saying that if someone is committing a crime, it doesn't give police permission to go break the law. You interjecting crime into this discussion is an easily identified tactic to ignore the actual issue. The only relation between police brutality and crime in America is how much police commit crimes, on-and-off duty, compared to the citizens they are supposed to protect and serve. Using stereotypes of African-Americans to justify police brutality against African-Americans is idiocy. The below graphic is unarmed civilians deaths by police in 2017, comes from the WashPost national police shooting database(which they've been independently tracking since the FBI doesn't), and this was taken September 26th. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings/ Keep this in mind, White people outnumber Black people 5 to 1, which means a black person is 600% times likely to be killed while unarmed than a white person. You can't excuse away 600% difference in how police treat one person compared to another. It's hilarious that you can go through every completely debunked racist BS about black people,and not realize how you sound. You claim black-on-black crime is so much higher than any other category. This is false. I'm sure you saw some Russian bot generated meme that your President tweeted, and then summarily retracted and blamed the fact that he tweeted incorrect statistics on some other idiot he got it from. 91% of black people are killed by black people, I'm sure you saw that part.....yet you missed the stat that 88% of white people are killed by white people. No, 3% isn't the "so much higher" you just claimed. The fact is all people killed in any given community are disportionately killed by people of the same community. It's human nature, not "those black people are just violent". And for the love of God, stop asking ridiculous questions that insinuate I said something that I never said. "Why is it you believe that social injustice and racism Only applies to minorities?" Really? When did I say that??? Racism happens to all demographics, and it would be relevant in a discussion that tackles those instances and why they happen. THIS ISN'T THAT DISCUSSION, and you're only bringing it up to distract from the very issue we're discussing and you lack much knowledge about. Other people who aren't Black experience racism doesn't trivialize black people experiencing racism from Police.

    And yet, there is a serious issue when people completely ignore the reason for the protest to harp on the method. It beggars the question of whether they’ve paid the actual reason for the protest any mind if it was done in a manner they find acceptable.

    No, those are not facts. Those are talking point someone gave you and you pass it off as an opinion. Sorry, blacks don’t commit more crimes than whites. Stop getting your information from obviously biased sources. There is so much fail in your post it is hard to decide what to address first. Somehow, with all the police brutality that happens in this country you decide to just bring up Freddie Gray(as if Gray is the only black man killed by police recently), and completely ignore that he was killed in police custody to talk about the riots that happened afterwards. Somehow, Gray’s death is inconsequential to you, but you want to keep harping on a white girl was raped and killed that you haven’t provided any sources about. Was that a result of the Gray murder? Is it a completely separate incident? Why is this girl’s death more important to you than Gray’s? Furthermore, do some damn research before you even go down this road with me. You call me BS, but you didn’t even know out of the six charged officers, who were the two ARRESTING officers that chased Gray down and caused his spine to be injured in the first place? The two white officers. This was covered pages ago, but apparently anytime truth is introduced in this discussion you forget how to read. And to further prove you are completely out of touch, biased, and have no clue what the actual protest is about. The race of the officer doesn’t matter.

    Kinda off-topic but, I thought this was awesome. Apparently, Deshaun Watson gave his first paycheck to three women in need from Houston as well. http://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/chris-long-donate-final-10-eagles-game-checks-play-free And regardless of what people feel about the form of protest, it looks like some good is starting to come from it. How much this promotes change remains to be seen, but an effort in the right direction is better than nothing. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/roger-goodell-doug-baldwin-write-letter-to-congress-supporting-criminal-justice-reform/

    It's too late for Kaep to get on a team this season. No one will take on the attention it would bring, and without a TC, preseason, practice, any kind of chemistry with WRs, he has no shot of being productive at all. By the time he'd learn the offense, know the plays and terminology the season would be almost over. Asking why he isn't on a team is kinda pointless at this point.

    High rates of crime doesn't justify police brutality and misconduct. Honestly, mentioning the rate of crime means exactly what in regards to police behavior? That it's ok? As I stated before, there is a way to improve these communities and lower the crime rate, but these cities aren't doing it for whatever reason.

    Questionable is an understatement. Gray's spine was 80% severed. We also have no video of the actual arrest, yet we have video for everything that led up to the arrest. So we don't know if it was a chokehold that did it, or if one of the officers did more than that. Considering how there is a camera on every corner in that neighborhood, and the one camera that should've caught the arrest didn't with zero explanation, I'm going to lean on it being more than a chokehold that can sever someone's spine.

    The two cops who made the arrest, prior to the other 4 showing up, were two white males. You don't know why Freddie ran, I don't either, because he's dead. You don't get to choose whatever motive for a decision you want on a dead person. Furthermore, I don't believe he had any active warrants. Just because you have a record shouldn't mean you should run from police by default. Although, if you speak to Baltimore residents they'll tell you a BCPD officer will kick you a** for looking at them too long. Maybe Freddie didn't want to get his a** kicked that morning. I don't know, I'm surely not going to speculate he was up to no good with zero proof.

    The state of Policing in this country is shameful, and not a point of pride. People should be aware of who and what they are defending. I completely understand people being offended by some kneeling in protest during the anthem. Despite a veteran asking Kaep to do that instead of sitting, I get it. But to make it seem like he has no reason to protest because of his wealth, or because it's some made up liberal lie is just dumb. Too dumb for some of you to fall into that trap. Police officers aren't the best of our society. Actually, they have a higher rate for some pretty heinous crimes than the citizens they are supposed to be protecting and serving. https://www.policemisconduct.net/statistics/2010-q2-npmsrp-police-misconduct-statistical-report/ I guess having "consensual" sex with a young girl you arrested is just perks of the job. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/nyc-teen-claims-nypd-cops-raped-arrest-drug-charge-article-1.3530054

    If you are mentioning the St.Louis police officer who said,"I'm going to kill him", while doing a high speed chase and then in fact killed the suspect the first chance he got. Then went on to plant a gun in his car. Then yes, no one wants to talk about the high speed chase because the issue at hand is the executioner with a badge who did something illegal and got away with it. I take it you've never been to Baltimore. Yes, the cops are crooked. I'm glad you can admit that much, and isn't that what Kaep was protesting....? And furthermore, exaggerating doesn't help make your point at all. Saying "a large percentage of people in that area choose drug dealing and murdering as a way of life"? Really? What are your statistics for this? And do you happen to know how high crime areas are created? When you remove opportunities within the community, remove jobs, and have a severely underfunded school system, over time people will look to alternative forms of making money. I don't agree with it, but I do know that abusing those people's rights by crooked cops isn't the solution to the problem. Investing in the community and providing legal opportunities for employment is the solution. You see most drug organizations function like a pyramid scheme. The guys at the bottom of the pyramid, the street dealers,etc,. they don't even make minimum wage. When you provide opportunities for people who don't have any, they'll choose the legal way to make money(and more of it) over the illegal way. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2014/12/summer-jobs-lower-violent-crime-rate-urban-teens If Baltimore( and yes I know it's a Liberal city, I don't give a F) actually wanted to make those communities better, they would invest in what they knew worked instead of voting with the state for more private prisons. New York is racist as hell. Trying to sum up everything I provided, by claiming they are only about the money is intellectually dishonest and shows you didn't look at the links I provided. We have current and former police officers who are admitting they were instructed to do arrest quotas and falsely imprison Black and Hispanic Americans in the communities they live, but to not do so once those same communities became gentrified. It is the very definition of racist behavior, but somehow you can't see or admit that. Maybe protesting isn't the answer, because some of you seem incapable of changing your mindset once you've been introduced to new information. The rest of your post, I'm sorry, it's biased right wing BS. The Freddie Gray incident was about two white police officers who brutally beat a black guy for running from him, then further worsened his health to the point of death by driving him in a paddywagon while not securing him. Exactly how do you figure it wasn't racial? And for once, try to stay on topic. No one said innocent white people should be targeted.

    Who in the world said all white people were racist? What is this rant even in reference to?

    Ok, so you say the issues in Baltimore, New York, and St. Louis need to be addressed. Ok, define those problems. I'm not sure if you're talking about police brutality or something else. I agree about the War on Drugs. It is stupid and it needs to end. Especially considering it began as a way to target black people. Don't believe me? https://www.forbes.com/sites/eriksherman/2016/03/23/nixons-drug-war-an-excuse-to-lock-up-blacks-and-protesters-continues/#3bcbf04042c8 A Nixon aide admitted it was started to target black people. I agree on the prison reform as well. We can begin by stopping the practice of outsourcing prisons to private corporations. These private corporations add occupancy minimums into their contracts with the State Govt. You would think a prison being under 90% occupied would be progress, but for the State, they are looking at fines from the company maintaining the private prisons and they adjusted accordingly. This is also why we are seeing arrest quotas in some Police Departments. Overall, crime has been going down for decades and continues to fall, but unfortunately that simply isn't good for business. Yes, poor white people are affected by our terrible bail system as well. So yes, it is a rich/poor issue, but considering the targeting of minorities they are disportionately targeted more than white people are. The roots of it may not be racial, but it is being used to target a demographic far more than another. Whether you believe race plays a part or not, at least we can agree that it needs to be changed. Now your last point I just can't agree with. You've taken a very narrow-minded scenario of your choosing and pretended every single white kid selling drugs is doing it in a school bathroom, and every black kid is doing it on a street corner. Where are you getting that from?

    I'm going to go off the assumption you actually want to be informed about this. So here you go: The first link is in the words of an ex-police officer in regards to how minorities are treated by Police. https://www.vox.com/2015/5/28/8661977/race-police-officer This second link is the details of a case 12 police officers have made against the NYPD in regards to arrest quotas and pressure the departments put on officers to violate the rights of minorities. https://www.scribd.com/document/356846939/Officer-Craig-Matthews-v-NYPD-New-York-City Also related to the second link, the third link is a class action lawsuit the city of New York settled, 900k bogus arrest were thrown out as a result. The vast majority of those arrested falsely were Black and Latino. The bring this into further context, these are people who were arrested for no reason and many of them, held in jail and unable to make bail due to their economic situation. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/city-agrees-settle-suit-bogus-summonses-75-million-article-1.2953546 The fourth link shows how Black people are more likely to be arrested for drugs, even though white people use drugs at the same rate. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2014/09/30/white-people-are-more-likely-to-deal-drugs-but-black-people-are-more-likely-to-get-arrested-for-it/?utm_term=.5b6f82e4e9fa

    Kaepernick still no job

    Yes, I am repeating myself. And I see the entire purpose of you responding to my posts was to ignore the fact that other poster was wrong and shift the conversation back to "Kap is bad" lol. Which really proves the point I was making, some people can't leave it at "I dislike this person because of ____", they have to create an entire narrative that justifies why they can't admit the person they dislike has ever done anything positive. It's ignorant, and childish. And with that I'm done with this topic. You can continue on posting as if it means anything.

    If you really wanted to know what he's done since he's started his anthem protest you could use the other half second and find out yourself. 900k in donations is going to a lot of organizations. I'm not going to waste my time listing them all when you really couldn't care less. WTF are you talking about?
  18. NIBGoldenchild

    ????? I have no idea what you're upset about. You can face facts or you can pout about it. GTFO is not what I'm going to do simply because you can't handle truth.

    This is also true, which is why I commend Allen Iverson, who gave to a lot of charities and worked with youth and no one knew about it. John Wall is another athlete that I respect a lot for the work he does in the D.C. community. On the flip side, sometimes a famous figure can highlight a need to a little known non-profit or charity, that can provide support from people who weren't aware of the need or where to provide help. Yet your point is kinda irrelevant to the fact a poster claimed Kap has nothing with his money, and he has.

    https://www.ninersnation.com/2013/6/23/4457534/colin-kaepenick-camp-taylor-pictures-charity I found that in like ten seconds on Google. He has volunteered for this cause. All I am saying is you are more than free to dislike the guy, but taking your dislike and claiming he isn't doing what he said he was going to do with his money and time is just false.
  21. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    No, it wouldn't change my view of the KKK or Hitler one bit. And yes, I'm glad you said you aren't comparing Kaep to Hitler because that's crazy. Regardless, the only reason I responded to his post is to the one line I bolded. That poster is welcome to his opinion, but he is not welcome to his own facts. It is one thing to express your dislike of a person based off what they do or say, it's another to create a false narrative fueled by your emotions. Nothing is so black and white, that you can't admit that he you disagree with his choice of protests but he did donate money to charities. So in regards to your posts, if the KKK gave to charities that say, provided funding to local public schools, just because I dislike what they stand for doesn't mean I can lie and say "they never donate their money to anything positive."
  22. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    900k is pretty damn close. Outside of volunteering his time with youth and donating to charities, what else do you think he should be doing to further create change?
  23. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    I said nothing about him slandering the eagles and ravens. I simply corrected you that he has given to charities and done stuff off the field.
  24. NIBGoldenchild

    So you aren't aware of that Kap has donated nearly a million dollars to charities over the past year?

    Yeah, I actually enjoyed watching our defense play as well as they did. Biggest improvement is the run defense. Third down D and covering the TE is still a work in progress. Hopefully it continues. Sucks that Darby broke his ankle like that. Mills stepped up though.
