Not sure the rest of you grew up. I grew up in Oakland, CA. maybe you haven't had the same experiences as me, and that's fine and perfectly understandable, but the thing of it is, I've seen this stuff first hand since I was a kid. No, not all white cop kills black dude are racially motivated, but enough of them are that I have absolutely no probably 'playing the race card' when one does. be surprised at how often, as a kid, we'd get busted and I'd get a free pass while the black kids I was with didn't. only difference? yeah, I'm white. Sorry, but after a while, you start calling a horse a horse - hoping I didn't mangle that saying, but yeah, totally appropriate.
