As a people our intent is not to invite or provoke, the wrath of people with bad intentions especially those with the badge of authority.
Stops! can change your life.
"They"- Wonder why we get nervous?
There is a difference in perception when it comes to being stopped by law enforcement, if you're committing crime you might be worried about being caught red handed, but what if you are not a criminal, and you're not a minority?
Ignorance is bliss but doesn't stop major consequence?
With no consequence and no escalation from the police.
There is still a difference in perception. I've seen stories on the news, where a white person condemns the officer, to his face! Speaking on their rights, and knowing their rights verbatim. With no consequence and no escalation from the police, whereas the driver is absolutely irate with very unforgiving tones.
How do "WE" as a people combat this norm?
But, Who Is Listening?,
It Seems to Be Getting Worse and More Common.
This has been documented and video recorded, purposely to expose officer conduct, and not one violent incident has been shown, or has been seen by me personally.
Perception of the driver, in this case is; " I'm a citizen, I have rights and I refuse to allow my rights to be violated by you ".
Speaking about the difference, of perception, from a white driver, to a non white driver, is not out of the ordinary, but who is listening, it seems to be getting worse and more common.
But they may be shot, beat, falsely imprisoned, or unfairly detained
The non white person, being pulled over is automatically filled with fear or stress, as this person does not want to provoke any incident. Non whites, especially, black and Latino people, can try. To speak on their rights, but they may be shot, beat or falsely imprisoned, or unfairly detained just for attempting to have the same conversation, about their rights or their status in society.
There is fear and anxiety; There are issues across the board with this perception.
Now the perception of fear vs. no fear. The Caucasian has no fear unless a crime has been committed. The non white is automatically more cautious because the assumption that they are criminal is a given.
There is fear and anxiety, because the situation is definitely more sensitive. Number one thing is it always feels that minorities are targets, while whites are the only ones intended to be protected, from all the non whites.There are issues across the board with this perception.
What is the difference or should I ask: " Do you see any difference? "
KTLA reported this morning Bill Cosby is facing ten years on each count of drugging grown women for sexual advancement, while this teacher was accused of molesting three teenage girls and he's facing 5 years if convicted. What is the difference or should I ask: " Do you see any difference? "
What do I mean when I say "STOPS"
