An unarmed white teen was shot dead...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/08/06/an-unarmed-white-teen-was-shot-dead-by-police-his-family-asks-where-is-the-outrage/

Where are the protests?

Where is the looting? Where are the riots?

Where are the "White lives mat-" whoops, that's too racist. Here we go: "All Lives Matter?" signs?

Since like, all those people who preached that say they're against all cops who do this to all races of people.

...Or are those folks only against coppers when the victim is a black person and the police-man is white?

Those are my thoughts. What are yours?

Race really should not matter. Someone getting shot is someone getting shot, regardless of their skin color.

But we sure know how to make anyone different from others, don't say this, don't do that, you can't because you are this.
OMG
When will we treat another human as a human with justifed means?

Better system and make the police takle things better would really help.
insted of 3-4 police officers down on 1 unarmed guy...
(happends often over there from what I have en, but more guns around everywhere)

I agree a million times.
All lives matter.
I'm really getting sick
of hearing all the crap about
just african-american stuff.
I'm not racist, I have friends of
all races. But it needs to STOP

Also, last week a white cop got killed by
a black man, where was the media when
that happened? It barely made the news.

the protests are more about how it happens more often to people of color, but any unethical killing should get attention regardless. white deaths get a lot less coverage, but looking at the data,

I can see why protesters would pay more attention to that.

Many of the prominent black activists have been talking about this for the past few weeks.

All Lives Matter is BS cause its meant to divert the conversation away from Black Lives. Its a silencing tactic.

Anyway I think there should be protests.

Thinking the riots in Baltimore and Ferguson were a direct result of the shootings Is kinda regressive. The shootings were just the boiling point of decades of oppression, gentrification, and shitty economic situations.

The police are out of control either way and the War on Drugs while mostly effect African Americans has cost this kid and many other children there lives.

The parents ask where is the outrage? Really? After that tragedy that is what they jump to? There is no outrage and there are no protests because white privilege is real and many more black suspects are killed by police than white suspects. Police tend to use more lethal force against black suspects. It is as simple as that. Many of them even view black suspects as being more dangerous and a bigger threat compared to white suspects.

Condolences to his family. Any innocent life lost is to be met with remorse.

Now-



Not doing this one.

Exactly, Who goes out of there way to make a thread like this specifically designed to create controversy. Both of you are the same kind of person to insult someone's whole family and then when you someone beats you up you wanna play innocent. You both make me sick.

The stats in that picture are off. You need to account for other factors such as percentage of each race, the outstanding warrants, crime rates by each race etc. Only looking at one variable (in which that does) will lead to a false report that wont be accepted anywhere. Try a .org/.gov/.edu site. Com sites are generally unusable in professional reports.

As soon as white male teens appear to be systematically targeted by predominately black police forces and treated as inherently dangerous for a few more decades I reckon is about when the racial fury will erupt ...

If the victim's family wants to protest and bring more attention to police brutality, they're perfectly able to do so. There's nothing stopping them.

Additionally, we white people really need to stop getting offended by imaginary insults.

I remember in 2006, when Sean Bell was killed, this whole city erupted. The day the cops got off, I walked home from school alone with a pencil in my sleeve because they were attacking people, mainly white people, and I was scared shitless a group was going to attack me.

There is two sides to these "peaceful protests" people want so bad. I'm not racist at all, but if your idea of "speaking out" is burning cars and buildings, robbing, and looting you're an idiot who deserves to go to the klink. Protesting through peaceful congregation is a right of any citizen in this country, but burning your whole city down (Im lookin' at you Baltimore) is immature, and shows how little you really care other than kneejerk reacting.
