Interesting that you refuse to put the spotlight on white supremacy and white people. Well if what your saying is true ? Then how do you explain the many black deaths of people who did not break the law ?
I mean according to you, being a law abiding black person ends police brutality. So what Travyon Martin ? O no he was gangster. Walter Scott ? Gangster. Mike Brown ? Gangster.
About Freddie Gray, the case is not closed yet, and 6 police officers are under investigation, and not all of them are white.
It does not matter if 3 of the cops were not white.
Black folks are capable of internalizing and then acting upon the same anti-black prejudices and stereotypes as whites. Often there is very little difference between the way white officers and officers of colour view communities of colour and the people who live there. The culture of law enforcement encourages a siege mentality among its members, and this mentality often plays out in a blatantly racist fashion, no matter the colour of the person wearing the uniform.

To call him a victim of police is hilarious. Of course for criminals like him nothing is more evil than police.
The killers of Freddie Gray will walk. I don't even know why they are evn bothering having a trial.

That's not the way you think because that is not the way white people think. Your true feelings are that he was as a n*gger and you are glad that he is dead.
Yohan wrote: Do I feel sorry for him? Not really
Now that's more like it.

You don't have to because this kind of thing doesn’t happen to whites. Because white people have power by virtue of being white. When a white kid dies under suspicious circumstances, people pay attention. Police don’t prey on white people. Because they can’t. And even if you find a couple of analogous situations, you still wont get close to what the black community experiences.
