    Only the chosen whites are immune from police brutality. If that’s not you then you’re no better off than me.

    Sorry that happened. ACAB.

      Yeah mostly if you can pass as mid-upper class minimum. I think making police brutality purely a race issue can suggest if the brutality was equally distributed it would be better. That’s the view that benefits politicians and capitalists at least, and the mainstream notion of diversity and inclusion that corporations promote. Connecting police brutality to people’s position in the political economy challenges a lot more than abstract racism.
