A recent story in the Seattle Times bemoans the fact that police watchdogs and civil libertarians are “alarmed and disappointed by a new report showing officers — despite nearly a decade under federal oversight partly intended to address bias — continue to stop and use force against Black people in the city far more often than white people.”
What it should say is, “Cops pull over people breaking the law and subdue those that resist, many of whom happen to be black. Why is that? What can we do about it?”
The liberal, white columnist at the Seattle Times then goes on to blame police for doing their jobs. Nowhere does he say, “Why is black crime wildly out of proportion?” More importantly, he never says, “Why do we libs ignore and thus encourage this?”
Colin Flaherty, author of White Girl Bleed a Lot and Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry, refers to crime as the “new black entitlement.” The Seattle Times seems to agree.
