Young black men in Chicago (some areas) grow up with carrying a gun and selling/using drugs as the norm. Their older siblings do it, their fathers do it( the few that have a father) everyone does it.
13% of the population is black. Black people, mostly men, commit over 53% of ALL murders, most are black on black. Black people commit over 63% of all violent crime.
If a person just looks at someone, it can be considered disrespect and may get you shot. And people are so afraid of the gangs, they won't turn killers in to the police. Unless the culture can be changed, the killings won't quit. Some of the gangs have been in place for 50 years.
I remember an elderly black man getting killed outside McDonalds in KC for a hamburger and fries.
Do cops profile? Yes they do. Why? Because statistics show that they are far more apt to encounter a violent black man than a violent white man. So they watch blacks closer. The cops want to go home at night.
“The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime. The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment. We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba. We remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who love racing.”
