On structural racism in policing

Good thread, friends, on structural racism in policing:

@mekkaokereke@hachyderm.io 🔗 https://hachyderm.io/users/mekkaokereke/statuses/109785330115485502 – You don’t have to be racist to participate in systemic racism. US policing produces racist outcomes even from “not-racist” people. I’m going to explain (again): * why I’ve probably been pulled over way more times than most people you know, even though most of the times I’m pulled over, I get no ticket (because I did nothing wrong) * how I stopped getting pulled over so much (because I understand the system) * And why lots of cops say that the average voter is more racist than the average cop
