If a non-white cop shoots and kills an innocent victim — it’s murder. So, yeah.

I suppose what I’m attempting to get at is that — while not ignoring the reality that there is racism and it is contributing to the overuse of lethal force by the police — focusing on that allows them to sidestep the core issue…

There will always be racist cops. If we take away the ability for racist cops to exercise their racism through brutality, lethal force, and false arrest, we can eliminate a great deal of the problem.
