There are more white people than black people in most of America, so while "more white men are shot", it is far less by percentage. You're white, and so you cannot fathom the fear a black man feels when they see the blue lights behind them. That is called "white privilege".
But you're not a victim of liberal talking points, made so that white people feel less guilty about what our forefathers did?
You seem to harbor resentment of white people. Do you think you know how it feels to be black? Do you think only democrats understand how it feels to be black and discriminated against? Have you ever experienced a racially motivated attack?
More over, have you ever had an encounter with the police where you were a suspect? Have you ever been arrested? Have you ever resisted the police on the street, in a protest or at the precinct station?
While I may not be black I have experienced all those scenarios first hand. Even before you were born.
"You're white, and so you cannot fathom the fear a black man feels when they see the blue lights behind them. That is called "white privilege"".
No, that's called bs. I know the feeling. I could tell you stories.
You shouldn't be so presumptuous. Not all "white people" are as ignorant as you might think. I was raised by a racist who was strait out of depression era Birmingham Alabama. I know what it means, and I know how it "feels" too.
