The Cops Raided The Bus and All Hell Broke Lose
Ezinne Ukoha

Every person identified in your post is an example of the systems bias and the application of bias laws in relation to people of color. The youth being preyed upon by white cops determined to meet their quota by prowling buses in low income areas. The passenger expressing his disdain for the drivers apparent lack of solidarity. The driver expressing his situation and his reliance on a job where he too is at risk of being unfairly targeted. The world continues to put more emphasis on disabling, disempowering and marginalizing people of color and profiteering from abject poverty than investing in the labors of populations who are most effected or trying to rectify the consequences of abuse that further the systemic oppression of people of color.
