Food for thought (FFT): After watching videos and reading about Trump supporters, including law enforcement, support of the terrorist attack on Capitol Hill and the response to the violence that killed five and stole classified information, I saw that when white people feel threatened, they back down from violence and work through other channels. Look at American foreign policy. We bully or attack weak countries, never strong ones, that disagree with us.
That epiphany made me hypothesize that law enforcement’s excuse to murder innocent Black people is a farce. Invariably, they claim to feel threatened yet empty rounds of bullets into the backs of innocent unarmed Black victims. If law enforcement truly felt threatened, they would respond like the Capitol police and others in law enforcement– run and barricade themselves until backup arrived.
So why are police officers murdering unarmed Black people under the guise of white fear? Why is there widespread support in the criminal system for the extrajudicial murder of Black people?
Will Biden address white fear that leads to police brutality and mass incarceration of Black people during his first 100 days?
