    Minority communities and the law enforcement/armed forces have a complex/poor relations. Police brutality, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the 2000s and 2010s which are seen by a majority of minorities as a racist war on black and brown Middle Easterners have not bridged the divides.

    What can be done?

    Well they certainly don't see those wars as anything racist, you just made that up so we can ignore that one.

    What we can do about the poor relations with cops is to end the liberals attacks against them and stop their race baiting which is where all of this is coming from.

    Cops shoot far more whites than blacks but you will never hear that in the leftist media will you?

    Written as if all law enforcement/military personnel are white, as if there's no crime in minority areas, as if the wars in the middle east are some kind of random crusade.

    Fail thread.

    Looking at the evidence, grand juries, and actual verdicts, the police aren't doing anything wrong 99.9% of the time...

    Which runs in direct contradiction to all the posts on this forum claiming that Black People, commit the majority of crime in America. So, if Black People, are committing the majority of crime in America, why are the police shooting "far more whites than blacks?"

    Seems like we've got ourselves a real conundrum taking place here. Or, instead of a conundrum, we've put a condom over the truth - so as not to let it out, ya know. ;)

    Whites make up the majority of law enforcement in most jurisdictions.

    Crime in minority areas are routinely policed by non-minority Whites in most jurisdictions.


    No, they are definitely not random. They were all planned and spelled out in Project for the New American Century quite vividly. Out of the 8 countries that were specifically named as potentials for regime change, we've successfully toppled four (4) already and are now working our way towards toppling the remaining four (4) with Syria and Venezuela on the immediate short range radar list of targets. Nothing random about it. Very well staged. Very well planned. Very well organized. Very much Zionist fomented.

    You could add a 9th to that list, if Saudi Arabia decides to dump the Petrodollar as some of the others have who were later invaded, economically destroyed, economically oppressed or who had their regimes changed. These wars are all about the Petrodollar, which for now remains the USD. However, that could change to the CNY in the not so distant future. If that happens, the entire Western Financial System will collapse and you can bet there will be World War III to prevent it.


    Actually, it is a pretty relevant question these days.

    Ok, go on...

    One, this is a bit tin-foily, especially when you throw in the element of zionism, secondly... ok, how's it relevant in the context of the OP's assertion?

    Allow me to summarize the op -

    "How can white people self flagellate even harder and accept responsibility for the problems of non-whites in the U.S. and Middle East?"

    That's all this thread is.

    What can be done to repair trust between minority communities and law enforcement/armed forces?

    1. Don't be involved in a crime
    2. Cooperate with police when they are investigating a crime
    3. Don't flee and when told to stop, STOP
    4. Nobody likes anyone with an "attitude" so learn to shut the F up.

    For one, quite screaming "RACIST" whenever a member of a minority group suffers in some way at the hands of law enforcement.

    While there are no doubt some racist law enforcement officers, most of the time I think when a member of a minority group is mistreated at their hands it is simply due to incompetence, laziness, lack of training rather than being deliberately malicious.

    Exactly why, in my country, it's the white folk who attract the most 'unwanted attention' from the PoPo. Whites are the ones doing most of the crime, and most of the attitude.

    Not really.

    Blacks commit more crime percentage wise based on their population.

    They don't actually commit more crimes than whites.

    America should have probably never went into Iraq. Period. Regardless of the Clinton-Saddam problems in the 1990s, the Middle East military quagmire has to end.

    Ok, I basically agree. I'm borderline isolationist. I believe in standing with allies, but primarily believe our military should serve the purpose of national defense.

    I think lumping in highly complex issues like Iraq and Afghanistan is unnecessary there and it seems questionable for you to declare what the majority of minorities think.

    The actual question is about humanisation. These conflicts come up because both sides have perceptions of the other which distant them from the realities of the individual human beings involved (sometimes intentionally, sometimes inadvertently). A major thing that so often doesn’t get the investment and support it needs is proper community policing, so that people get to know each other on an individual basis rather than the police being seen as just a uniform and the public being seen as just faceless crowds. It loses out because it’s difficult to quantify the benefits and everyone demands immediate and measurable results for their money.

    Step 1: Make the police equal under the law with all other citizens. That means they don't get to break laws to enforce laws and they are subject to the same rules and limitations as any other citizen. If a cop shoots someone in the line of duty, they get the same treatment as a private citizen would get when they shoot someone in the same circumstance.
    Step 2: Limit the laws the police enforce to those that actually protect people and property. That means they wouldn't be trying to stop people from voluntarily buying or selling anything as long as it wasn't stolen and they wouldn't try to stop people from using drugs. They would continue to try to stop people from stealing, littering, vandalizing property, trespassing, assault, murder and anything else that is an imposition on other people's liberty or property.

    The military is seen as part of racist war against black and brown? Where do you get that from? There are plenty of black and brown who enlist.

    That would not work. If you had the law like that then you might as well not have a police force at all.

    Why would it not work? If I hire a body guard to protect me, he can't go around arresting people for smoking weed but he can certainly prevent people from hurting me, even to the point of defending me with violence. If there is a different set of rules for police than for everyone else then we have an elite that rules over us and we don't have equality under the law.
