Black Lives VS. White Lives

police-brutalityI am not surprised at the backlash that is coming out of that black population. What surprises me is that white people find so little kinship with them based the law enforcement issues they deal with. Ordinary blacks and ordinary whites have lots of common ground in dealing with police. I do acknowledge that blacks, for now, have it worse.

It is odd that once a human organism gets comfortable it loses the ability to imagine itself suffering the same hardship as a counterpart only slightly removed from its presence. Once and entire population trades all of its freedom for comfort, there is not a lot a lot of push back to brutality.

Expect the brutality to rotate. If you are poor and white, most likely you are next. Then expect the brutality to move up the latter.  The answer is not violence. The answer is in taking control of government. Violence is more likely.
