    No, for police the correct action is always to treat people as *individuals*. That doesn't mean racial statistics will ever be 1:1 though. Thinking that race is the main causal factor for any differential is the correlation-causation fallacy.

    Fun fact of the month. All observations are theory-laden;
    Many theories, same data. Wittgenstein’s duckrabbit. Yanny vs Laurel.

    The most ironic thing out of all of this is that Trump and his Zombie fans are acting just like China when they attack athletes for exercising their right to protest. Hell, many of them even supported the NFL barring Kaepernick, and boycotted Nike when they endorsed him. Donald Trump and the right in this country wanted to finacially destroy a guy just becuse he was protesting police brutality which is his right under the constitution that right wing "patriots" supposedly worship.

    You don't get more anti-American than that.

    Say something racist

    Be called out for saying something racist

    Try to explain it away while

    Saying more racist things to arrogantly defend how your racism is not racism. Typical.

    uhuh keep back tracking also when things get really bad the federal government gets involved a combination of police training, community outreach and weeding out high complaint officers show drastic improvement in statistics of police brutality and violence. What's your explanation? did black cultures in those areas magically change not police?

    The obvious difference is that the NBA knows that decent Americans disagree about politics without actually wanting to financially punish others. Not watching basketball because of a political opinion is a ridiculous move.

    Of course, kowtowing to the Chinese Communist Party is pathetic and has all the optics of saying, "well, Nazis buy shoes too".
