I take it you mean some people supporting the Kaepernick protest are saying that a few police are murderers? Probably. There are people on both sides using extreme rhetoric to make a point, but I don't think anyone is saying it's "okay", though...maybe a better term might be 2nd degree murderers, or manslaughterers?Bick wrote:People supporting Kaepernick protest
He said he was not going to stand for a COUNTRY that oppresses blacks
I'm assuming you're talking about Kaepernick? The exact quote was "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color"
You're taking exception to what you see as an over-generalization? Okay, I can see that. People on both sides should indeed be more exact with their words so we don't lose sight of the problem waste time arguing about semantics. Although some could argue that recent actions like lack of prosecutions for civil rights violations or the gutting of the Voting Rights Act would tend to indicate there is complicity at the Federal level as well...
My thoughts are very different from the protesters. I believe the primary problem is the crime in the communities that results in the profiling needed to police it
Very different indeed. Many of them would say that it's the profiling itself that is the problem.
What institutionalized attitude do they want changed? What practice(s) do they want changed?
I don't think That's a secret, a little googling should answer your questions...
Someone being disrespectful doesn't cheapen anyone / anything but the person who is being disrespectful
Well, I think playing the Anthem at ballgames or when a TV station goes off the air (showing my age) cheapens it, but that's just me
