If you look at racism in America.


This societal problem isn't with the police. Police brutality can be part of the issue. I grew up in a predominantly white northern backwood suburbia. With families that could be considered impoverished American households. There are white, black, and N.A. families that are entrenched in multigenerational poverty and the racial lines that draws. Spend just a little time in prison and you'll get a real wake up call how deep racism goes on this country. It doesn't start with police it starts with poverty.

I'm serious ! So called "racism" is a genetically inherited behavioural trait that predates humans. It's all about preferring the members of ones own tribe/pack over outsiders which helps enormously if there is a dispute about who gets to eat what and who gets to live where.

Well there's plenty of us pirates lookin to hijack certain genetic traits and infiltrate families of power. I think that's the imperialist gene.🦎

Well that's what happens when you take anxiety drugs for an extended period of time and become addicted to them and can't get off them and then go to Russia to be put into a coma and come out of it off the drugs but with some neurological damage isn't it ?
