I can't even begin to express how stupid this thread is and how frustrated it makes me.

You can argue about exceptions, even from your own experience, but bear in mind: A) The occasional exception doesn't undermine the concept as a whole, and B) the challenges of being half-Korean aren't the same as the challenges of being black.

Seriously, thinking it was ever just about Floyd would require you living under a rock since at least Obama’s second term, and is as absurd as thinking the French Revolution was about some guy in the court of Louis XVI losing his keys.

And we can all see what’s coming down the sewer pipe that is Drich’s mouth in response to those statistics: “well, maybe if they didn’t commit all the crime...” plug your nose everyone.

Agreed. Drich's comments aren't anything more than poorly disguised racism.  He's committing the racial equivalent of the spousal abuser: 'Look what you made me do...'

I don't know about that. I mean, sure Drich's OP is painfully (and likely willfully) ignorant, but everyone else is calling him out on his bullshit.

If you look at the 60s and the baby boomers they too were generation who were not disciplined in masse because alot of the returning vets sought to spoil their children because of the war and most of them grew up during the great depression with nothing. from that spawned a generation of worthless hippies. now we seeming have another generation of worthless people who destroy and break things and disrupt

My thought is that you still can't write a sentence in the English language, and you're still the idiot you have always been. 
You still sound like the angry church lady you always are, still too stupid to use a spell-checker and grammar-checker. 
The POINT is, (which apparently you are too dense to get), is that police reform will help others.

I know that for a Trumpite to think of others, is not in your bag of tricks, but it's really not all that difficult a concept. 
The Russian meddling in the election was not "fabricated", neither was the Ukraine. Bolton's book proves it was his MO in other cases also. 
He and his cronies, and ALL the crooked cabinet members he appointed ARE the swamp, also proven in Bolton's book.
You also don't have a shred of evidence that the Boomers spawned a generation of worthless hippies. No data Dripshit. Empty worthless assertions is all you have.

"Spoiled" is the word that thieves and corrupt politicians -along with their followers- always use to describe the protestors who protest against their shameful deeds.

Just like the French princess who said "Let them eat cake" when she learned that the peasants had no bread:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_them_eat_cake

Black people in America were treated so badly, the world has eyes Dirch; we see how the American media depict them in older movies; and we can also read "Uncle Tom".

And when they revolt -along with their friends- you call them spoiled ! i.e "let them have cake".

How disgusting.

There is no revolt. All americans wish to be afforded the rights and privileges that being an american brings. Calls for reform are about as far from revolutionary as can be imagined. They affirm the state, and reaffirm the states responsibilities to it's citizens.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

I was only referring to the OP, the responses are more than appropriate.

Then why how did Trump win?
There's a great divide between whites and blacks; or let's say between the North and the South.
