i wonder how many people can name any white people killed by police, bc i can name more than a few black people. too many. police deescalate and disarm white people every day so why exactly are we still being killed? hunted like wild animals? police prey on unarmed black citizens, “mistaking” pills and wallets for guns and yet no one is convicted. so no, i don’t feel safe around police officers, and a shitty little ad showing them playin basketball with “inner city youth” isn’t gonna make me feel differently. STOP. KILLING. US.
