Stop the frame at the 1:57 mark.

I also assumed she was white, and as she's blurred out to protect her identity, it's hard to tell. But there's a moment, at 1:57, where the film transitions from a closeup of his star-spangled pen writing the citation to him handing her the ticket where her hand is not blurred. It does look like Black skin.

This makes sense why she'd start off out of the gate with, "You want to murder me." And also with her going on with "You'll never be white," as that is a fairly common critique of cops of color, that they're trying to assimilate to white culture but will never be able to attain it because white culture will never accept them as true equals.

Yeah, not the Revolutionary War, but the Lost Cause of the Confederacy.

Although it's true that many Revolutionary War/Founding Fathers really just wanted freedom from Britain so they could create and unilaterally rule their own private fiefdoms, known as plantations. So I guess... sort of like refighting the Revolutionary War, but really, much more about dividing the existing Union to again allow power over literal life and death for their workers (enslaved or not). This is Civil War, Part II.
