    There is either a conspiracy against blacks in this country and police are out to get them OR it’s that they are getting caught breaking the law and often times refuse to obey police authority.

    Because its usually all the media wants to show to support their narrative and usually they are repeat offenders resistance arrest or not complying with police orders or both.

    I wonder if white people ever get stopped by the police. Does the news media ever show white people being “picked on” by the police or is it just black people that get stopped? Just curious.

    Is it because it's reported on and publicized more? Aren't significantly more whites killed by police each year than blacks?

    Because a black man shot by a white cop, even when totally justified, is repeated on the news 24x7 for weeks or months and will be used on the list even when completely discredited as anything wrong.

    Black thugs can shoot white toddlers in the head and it not be mentioned.

    It's all the media.

    Yes, everyone needs to use their brain, if cops are pointing A gun at you, and ask you to “get down” or “ put up your hands” LISTEN TO THEM OR YOU MIGHT GET SHOT.

    Maybe these black suspects don't feel understood by non-black police arresting them. They might be more cooperative if there's a black cop present at the scene.

    I’ve seen black cops go after black men and that is the case especially in predominantly black neighborhoods. I think if you are white black or yellow. , if you try to ignore the police especially if they have guns drawn, you are looking for trouble.

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/585152/people-shot-to-death-by-us-police-by-race/ About twice as many whites are shot than blacks, but there are a lot more whites than blacks, so the imbalance is there
