Police to Black Suburban Residents: Your Not Welcome

Postby San Lumen » Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:27 pm

I found this article highly disturbing. Its long but worth the read.
https://www.buzzfeed.com/albertsamaha/p ... csG7zPy3B0
The article is mainly about the city of Troy, which is technically a suburb of Albany the capital of New York State. The city is a reflection of a growing trend where people of color are moving to smaller cities or suburban areas and changing the demographics. Yet the police forces in those communities don't treat them well nor do people in the community.

They treat them differently and the residents act like they are bringing crime and lowering their property values among other things. The police forces also don't reflect the changing demographics and the departments seem hostile to allowing non whites into their club. To be clear I am not saying that someone should get a job because of their race.

I think this is white protectionism and its highly disturbing and unacceptable. There is no link between race and crime and people shouldn't feel unwelcome where they reside.
The United States is a diverse multicultural country. People should be allowed to reside wherever they want and not feel like their town or city is unwelcoming or hostile to them because of their race.

in the words of Hermann Munster: The lesson i want you to learn is it doesn't matter what you look like. You can be tall or short or fat or thin, ugly or handsome like your father or you can be black, yellow or white it doesn't matter. What does matter is the size of your heart and the strength of your character."

What's your take NSG on this hostile treatment and other issues this article raises?

To those white residents, the officers serve as a final line of defense against the outsiders marching onto their land, uniformed allies paid to protect them from the dangers they feel closing in around them.

And how does BuzzFeed News (oxymoron) know this? Did they poll the area asking white residents if they think the police are their Praetorian Guard against black and Hispanic people? What a stupid article. Also funny how they roped Trump into it. Because apparently the only reason someone can vote for him is if they want blacks put of their communities.

If the police force is that problematic then perhaps more blacks and Hispanics should join them. Then it won't be so white. I fail to see how it's the fault of white people that they want to join the police force more than minorities do.

Alright, so I read the article and looked for similar articles and basically found this.

One; BuzzFeed is the only news outlet that reports on Troy/Albany NY's suburban racism. Google searches with keywords related to the BuzzFeed article only bring up the BuzzFeed article. The title is also misleading: the people interviewed explained that they felt like some cops were discriminatory in their town. This may very well be the case, but that is unfortunately commonplace in a lot of places in the country. But the title of the OP makes it sound like some Levittown shit (they never allowed black people to lease until the Civil Rights Act, same with much of suburbia in the 50s and 60s.)

It's interesting the way you're presenting this and the last topic, as if these long running issues of racism are just popping up on to your radar. They're as old as the hills in America and they're everywhere. How would you go about fixing this problem OP?

LOL you will see a real high tech race war one day. It won't be carried out by thugs and Klan militias. It won't be what the current White Dominionists dream of. Instead it will be like Nazis with AI, nanobots and ethnic biological weapons.

Then you will know what the word "brutality" actually means.

It does. The current level of racism is in fact historically very low. Humans such as Jews and Chinese can survive and thrive under much higher levels of racism, just not full-fledged Nazism.
