    i already admitted there are criminals and times where force is necessary. It would be incorrect to say that all police killings towards minorities were not justified. However because of those justified killings or the behaviors that led to killings by the criminal, law enforcement tends to adopt the thinking that minorities all do the same thing and will shoot first even in scenarios where it really wasn't necessary.

    Your inability to comprehend a concept does not legitimize the concept. I honestly believe you when you say, "I personally do not see why the flag/anthem directly correlates to the military and or veterans...". To protest is to be American but to try to make your issues more important than my relaxing football time is bad form. There is a time and place for everything. Protest on your time I might even join you and we'll convey a more potent message together.

    " law enforcement tends to adopt the thinking that minorities all do the same thing and will shoot first even in scenarios where it really wasn't necessary."

    Yes this? Does it apply just to white cops or do minority cops act in such a manner as well? If so why?

    Can someone explain what the phrase "white fragility" means? I've seen it bandied around in discussions like this and would like to have a better idea of what it means.

    i'm basing this on my own experiences. when you get pulled over by a cop for something small, who after sees food in your back seat, asks "got the munchies after a little weed session huh?" i can say this happens. And that's a light version of my experiences

    Nice of you to only quote half of what I said, lol. Protests are never at your convenience, that would make them ****** protests.

    Are some really going to give up the whole football seasons if the Cowboys protest. Even if they end up making a deep run in the playoffs?
