Off-Duty Black Cops Racisted By White Cops In NYC Because Of Course
If there is one thing that 2014 has taught us, it is that SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts was 128 percent correct to overturn the Voting Rights Act because there is no more racisming in America. One only has to look to the NYPD for evidence:
Reuters interviewed 25 African American male officers on the NYPD, 15 of whom are retired and 10 of whom are still serving. All but one said that, when off duty and out of uniform, they had been victims of racial profiling.
Well, if they didn’t want to be profiled, maybe they shouldn’t have chosen to be black in America, or guilty of Breathing While Black (second degree felony in most states).
Maybe this isn’t really racisming. Maybe 96 percent of black cops Reuters talked to were just hyper-sensitive. Or asking for it. What really happened?
The officers said this [racial profiling] included being pulled over for no reason, having their heads slammed against their cars, getting guns brandished in their faces, being thrown into prison vans and experiencing stop and frisks while shopping. The majority of the officers said they had been pulled over multiple times while driving. Five had had guns pulled on them.
We have no scientific or even anecdotal evidence, but we would bet Dok Zoom’s left testicle that you’d be hard pressed to find five out of 100 white cops in NYC who have had a gun pulled on them from a fellow cop, even if they were #CrimingWhileWhite.
Good thing there is a system set up for complaints like this. And in America, we know that The System works so well for black men, so this is sure to have a happy ending, right?
All but one said their supervisors either dismissed the complaints or retaliated against them by denying them overtime, choice assignments, or promotions. The remaining officers [two-thirds of them] who made no complaints said they refrained from doing so either because they feared retribution or because they saw racial profiling as part of the system.
Fuck, man. We can’t even be funny about this. This is just monumentally fucked up. What kind of goddamed society are we living in when this shit can happen? And on top of that, there are asshats out there who claim that it’s white people who are the real victims of racism?
Obama promised us a post-racial America. It ain't here yet. 2015 better hurry the fuck up and get here. Maybe it will be a better year. God knows it can't be much worse.
