But they can fight back. And do. And when you fight back against the police to the extent that you threaten their security, you have a good chance of getting shot.
You still seem to be clinging to the unproven narrative that the police are cruising round looking for black people to shoot. Do people actually believe it for real? Like, I know it's BLM propaganda but seriously, people actually believe that all the shit that happens to cops after they defend themselves agains attacks is something they actually seek out? It's idiotic - their life and career is ruined because some thug doesn't know how civilized people behave. But sure, blame the victims.
And regardless, that is not fighting back. That is just fighting. If you've genuinely been unfairly treated, then make a complaint, get a big payout - many cities can't wait to give money away. Throwing punches or worse, pulling weapons, will get you shot - that's simply not acceptable in a law-abiding society.
Or, as is more likely the case - STOP BREAKING THE LAW, ASSHOLE !
Reminder: systemic racism and all the other invented "racism you can't see, touch or call out" was created by the Obama administration to create racial division and blame the cops for the riots even though they did their job.
How can you fix something you can't even point to?
Hence the hype, the distractions, the media circus - anything but a discussion of the facts.
How sports stars could actually help black youth:
Tell them that sport is not a career to pursue - it's like having "win lottery" as a financial plan.
Tell them to finish high school.
Tell them to get a job and build a life.
Tell them not to have kids without being married.
Have "the talk" with them, I don't know why but apparently some sections of society need to be told *not* to attack people. I've never had to tell me kids that because we taught them to be respectful to everyone by default.
