If the Police in Berkley continue to not do much, african americans will draw a comparison.

And rightfully so.

The pictures and videos I'm seeing, I'm asking myself, if these were african americans rioting and not little white men like me, what would the media reaction and police reaction be? Well it would look different than what we're seeing right now, and if it keeps happening it will be impossible to not draw a striking comparison.

Just my opinion

1. You must be new to America

African Americans have long made the comparison of different treatment from the police and other American institutions when it comes to gatherings, protest, or marches.

2. I agree but I don't remember many violent white protests

 

I do have memories of violent black protests and how they were brutally beaten down. And if violence keeps happening on these college campuses, it's going to stoke a divide between some within our party.

3. Most states and many major cities have a history of

violent protests against blacks called "race riots." Those histories include mob actions by whites with burnings of buildings and multiple lynchings.

7. Why? because I said white boys like me?

 

Sorry, you can tell we're being treated different.

9. And Honestly

 

I'm not a troll. I've had people respond to me that are likeminded and I feel like this is the only place on the internet I won't get banned for my political beliefs. I'm probably on the fringe of liberalism but my other option was to stew in deep south republicanism, and I feel like I'm making progress. And that shit feels good. Cause this bitch is progressive.

5. When white boys get into violent conflicts, usually over something especially stupid like sports...

... it's just boys being boys.

Even when they are lighting dumpsters on fire, tipping over police cars, and beating one another bloody.

'bye now.

6. That's what I'm saying. And it's obvious there's a difference in how the police are reacting.

 

You don't have to be a TROLL to realize that.

Just being a realist.

8. Or, judging by the lack of responses to this thread

 

Maybe my pessimistic side is getting the worst of me right now.
