    I'll take "things that have been said since the 70s and have enacted in no life-altering changes since" for $500 Alex.

    And? What's the alternative? Telling black people to just let Hank Hill take the position in becoming your cities guardian? I was merely replying to OPs question that as black people if something is plaguing your community it only makes sense to infiltrate your own within the ranks.

  • Naivety. They think they can do sum postive or make a change

    There’s literally not a difference lol. Black cop end up showing out/going hard for the white cop lmao

  • Man these hypothetical black cops yall talking about must’ve just not been born into after the 80s. We coulda really used some good black cops when CRASH was raiding innocent ppl’s houses

  • JaeRell

    op really needs to get outside more.

    Imma stick my d*** outside your mouth if you keep talking s***

    Shut up nigga contribute to the thread or leave

  • So they star in p***. That’s literally it

    I mean it can. But that's because it takes a certain type of person to sign up to be a cop in the first place. Everybody i knew was trying to become a cop in HS was some herb ass dudes. If a nigga like me was to be a cop I wouldn't go for that, but then I also wouldn't make it on the force.

  • Melanated discussion only

  • Money. Same thing with the military branches

    Even though cops ain't rolling in money. Becoming a cop is a easier career to get into than going to college to start your adult life

  • Puts the target of being a black man slightly off your back.

    What causes a black man to join the military?

    Desperation.

    we need more black cops
    f*** wrong with op

    no we don't

    we need less police presence all around, and to demilitarize the police

    black people can still be anti-black. black cops dont fix s***

    Most people don't really think about it past the money and benefits. When I was 20 I became a firefighter because 45k starting sounded good at the time.

  • Rx FIFTY ABLOH

    why?

    the police system is still inherently racist all that would accomplish is setting more black people against each other

    Not really institutions aren’t autonomous beings

    Yes fundamentally it’s racist but a huge part of that stems from the people in and the culture they bring

    That’s like saying “the educational system” is racist. Sure it is but ik i sure as hell had a better time when I was thought by mostly black teachers versus the opposite in parts of my life

  • insertcoolnamehere

    Self hatred.

    What causes a black man to join the military?

    desperation and scarcity

  • There's no way I could be a cop and pull apart a family.
    Really good question @op
    There are pros and cons but in Western Society, the bad outweighs the good. Especially if you're entering the system to 'enable' the system. Meaning, you aren't taking the knowledge of State/Local and Fed rights and teaching others or starting your own Police Force, you're arresting an uneducated person or writing them a ticket to fulfill a quota.

    F*** this is a damn good question.

    Black people are not a monolith

  • insertcoolnamehere

    Nah.

    And in respect of your family ima refrain of discussing this any further with you after this. The experiences that I’ve had with cops, my mom and pops have had with cops (that I witnessed) from all colors of the rainbow, lead me to a non-negotiable position that aint no such thing as a good cop.

    Anyone believing in “changing it from the inside” in 2021 is either lying or are more gullible than 18 year olds that still believe in the tooth fairy. Because if cops could change s*** from the inside, they would’ve done it by now. Your folks included.

    I’d teach my kids to respect em the same way slaves was taught to respect the overseer. But it’s f*** 12, I ain’t raising no cops.

    P.S. I thought Spike Lee was corny for Blackkklansmen and finding out NYPD helped fund it wasn’t surprising one bit.

    That's fair. It's most def a hard convo to haven given the context we all have with the police so I get you 100%. Agree to disagree on some aspects tho

    You don't see how one could want to be a cop just to lesser someone's chance of a deadly or life changing outcome during a routine traffic stop or simple police interaction?
