When it comes to the state of the black community and their relationship with law enforcement, I think there are some very valid points to be made and they should be listened to.
To ignore the idea that there is a cultural divide between the two groups is to ignore reality. It’s undeniable that a gulf exists between the two that needs to be bridged. It can be argued and debated who is to blame all day, but scorekeeping isn’t going to get us anywhere in fixing this relationship in the same way it doesn’t fix private relationships.
The problem is, when these valid voices with valid points do show up to protest, they’re soon drowned out by the violence and destruction of those who don’t know how to reign in their emotions or who don’t really care about making the point, just resorting to violence and destruction in order to get away with doing things they wouldn’t normally be able to.
