how often are black folks killed by police wrongly?  are the the police punished for it?

he did resist...
How often?  Too often.  And that goes for white folks too.  There are too many bad police shootings.
The police are not punished in proportion to their misdeeds.  Police unions are part of the problem.  SCOTUS-created police immunity is another part of it.

as long as they kneel during the national anthem I wont be watching






I have to imagine if you told every kneeling NBA players about your boycott their reactions would probably go something like this.

That's just ridiculous. A lot of poor Whites are descended from indentured servants, and their family has been poor ever since they earned their freedom.

They have never, ever been part of any ruling class, buried on the bottom rung of society, and catch the bulk of the blame for "oppression." It is absolutely absurd.

Oh bless your heart. You actually believe this don't you? Aw, well hopefully someday they find some cure for your affliction.

Correct, except that some bad cops are racists - be them white, be them black, be them brown, be them yellow, be them male, be them female.

yes, we all know there are racists out there

I've been known to say that all folks with enough experience are racist to a degree

racists come from all walks and all jobs

law enforcement just has the means to not be held accountable for brutality and deaths

I'm happy all police officers will soon be wearing body cameras in Sewer City

hopefully the county sheriff's department will follow suit

Ad hominem. 

Black people have one political party wrapped around their finger, and another that is absolutely scared to death of them. That isn't oppression, that is a pretty nice place to be. If only we all could be so lucky.

If you want to see true oppression, you need to search out the groups of people on the fringes of society, that are equally despised by both political parties. Like, say, the polygamists on the Utah-Arizona border. About the only thing that the left and the right agree on these days is that those people deserve to be discriminated against. So they get absolutely train run by both political parties at all times, bi-partisan, no matter which one is in power, and they will never get any relief. Ever. Nobody will ever take up their side. Kids can literally throw rocks at them, and people will just laugh. (I have actually seen this happen.) You have people like Fro asking me if I live in their town, and suggesting that we all need to burn our computers if I did. 

That's oppression. Having the political party that controls the media, silicon valley, the education system, and the entire entertainment industry at your beck and call is not oppression. At all.

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're asking with the first two.
Black cops pretty much behave like white cops.
If you consider that all arrests are legitimate, cops killing black suspects--by shooting or otherwise--is not racially skewed.  They are no more likely to kill a black suspect arrested for the same crime and behaving in the same way as a white suspect.  But they arrest proportionately more black suspects.  We can get into some circular reasoning with this.
I think it's pretty clear that cops hassle black people more, and that poisons the relationship.  Black people trust the cops less than white people do, so they are less likely to report crimes and they are more likely to respond uncooperatively or confrontationally when questioned or arrested.
Or so I understand from my reading of the situation, which has not been nearly as extensive as my study of certain other subjects.

Billy Bob's kids will still get more of the benefit of the doubt than Tyrone will if they try to better themselves.
Yeah, that isn’t necessarily true.  Billy Bob’s kids don’t have Affirmative Action policies to help them get into schools or obtain employment they otherwise might not be qualified for.

And if there is a Billy Bob Jr I’d say there is a pretty good chance his resume might get pushed to the bottom just as quickly as Tyrone Jr’s.  But no one cares enough to do a study on white southern sounding names so we’ll never know for sure.

But we do know if there aren’t enough Tyrones at a particular school or company the decision maker may be compelled to give Tyrone a shot, whether they want to or not. That isn’t the case for Billy Bob.
