WRONG IDEA: President Obama To America’s Police Force: Your Split Second “Racial Bias” Is Why Black Americans Get Shot And Killed.
According to the Washington Times, President Obama feels that to fix racial tensions between police and black communities in America, they just need training. “What kind of training?” you might ask. The kind that makes these hateful, racist police more “aware of their biases ahead of time”.
Apparently, all police have racial biases. So, either police are 100 percent white, or this makes no sense. The answer to that is obvious, and comes as no surprise from our poor president who has had a 'hard knocks' life. He allegedly was treated like a valet in Chicago as young men, as ABC News reported in December, and his wife was unnoticed in Target.
Mr. Obama, of course, leaves out growing up in Hawaii and being taught at Harvard law. Michelle Obama sounds more like her narcissistic deity complex was crushed, rather than experiencing a racial snub. The US Herald discovered earlier, as a video surfaced, some of the claims were exaggerated anyways.
In any case, this idea about Bias training, stemmed from an interview that the president did with a “YouTube personality”. I am not sure why either, do not ask. “GloZell Green” asked Mr. Obama what can be done to stop violence by “white” officers against “black” males. Green sighted Ferguson, Missouri as her reference.
I guess GloZell did not get the memo, but anyways. GloZell, if you did not know is a black American, expressed to President Obama that she has since had to “cut the hoods” off her husbands hoodies because she's afraid “the po-po” will shoot him when he goes outdoors.
That is bizarre.
There are many people that wear hoodies that have not been shot before or since. The president said he understood, and that though the “overwhelming majority” of police are doing a difficult job well (are not racist),“problems” remain (some are). His obnoxious race-bating had not been satiated just yet.
“There’s still biases in our society that, in split-second situations, where people have to make quick decisions … studies have shown that African-American males are seen as more threatening, which puts them in more vulnerable positions. Young African-American males are typically seen as older than they are. And so a lot of the way to solve this is to improve training so people can be aware of their biases ahead of time.”
President Obama also said that a “task force” he formed last year came up with some recommendations, and he is going to take them and put “federal muscle” behind them. Well, the government is certainly jacked enough to put muscle into anything. Since President Obama has been in office, the U.S. Government has been 'roid raging ever since.
This continues a disturbing trend that seeks to take the heat off real issues. If these police officers have issues, why are they not dealing with individuals? If so many policeman have such absurd amounts of bias that they need to be trained not to be, what kind of disturbed police force do we have in America? Quite frankly, if it is that bad, we have bigger problems that “training” probably can not address.
What are your thoughts? Is this a smart move to curb police violence, or is the issue something else entirely?
