Why the media is wrong about the state of Missouri and the country
I was looking for a reason to write this article about the media.
It wasn’t until I started reading The New York Times article on the protests in Ferguson that I came across a story I hadn’t seen before: an article that cited a study from a Columbia University professor who said, “The idea that a large portion of Missourians are racist is not only completely false, it is profoundly wrong.”
The article, titled “Is It Really Racism?,” by Amy Lasker, is titled “The Problem with the Racist Narrative” and was written by a Columbia professor, Amy Lachman.
It appeared in the Columbia Journalism Review on December 10.
It was titled, “Missouri’s Police Are Racists.”
It is one of many stories that appear every day on The New Yorker and the New York Post, and on other news outlets.
It is one thing to call for change in the police department, and that is what is needed.
But what is racism?
And is there anything wrong with calling out and questioning the police?
Laskers answers the questions in the article.
LaskER: It is a question I think most people have been wondering.
And it is one that is really important to answer.
RACISM ISN’T ABOUT RACES, IT IS ABOUT PEOPLE AND POWER.
RACE IS NOT ABOUT LIVES AND CRIMES, RACIALISTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CRIME AND HATE PEOPLE, AND THE NATIONAL RACE BAN DOESN’TAO WORK FOR SOME PEOPLE.
ROCKEFELLER: So it’s a question that we are asking ourselves all the time: What are the real reasons for police brutality?
It’s a complex question, and there are so many factors.
But the most important factor is that when police officers use force, they are acting with extreme force.
That’s what the majority of Americans think when they hear that phrase, and it is also what most of us would say when we hear the phrase “white people are bad.”
RACISTS HAVE LIVES TO PROTECT.
The majority of police officers have lived in and around communities of color for a long time, and they are people of color who know the dangers they face.
And yet we’re seeing this rhetoric coming out of Ferguson, Missouri.
I’m sure you’ve seen it on the streets.
I think that this has gotten to the point where there is this perception that police officers are somehow not being held accountable for the crimes they commit.
RICK SLEEK: And so, you know, when people say the police are racist, it’s not like they are speaking on behalf of the police, it does not mean they are not trying to be responsible.
RACHEL MCCARTNEY: And what I’m trying to say is that we’re a long way from being able to do that, because, in fact, the way that our system works, there is a lot of racism going on.
It is important to remember that we need to have a conversation about racism.
And we need an investigation of the Ferguson police department to really understand how racism is present.
RICHARD LADNER: It does seem like a lot is going on, and this is just a continuation of what we’re doing with the police departments around the country.
But when I look at the data, I think it’s pretty clear that the people who are protesting and having their voices heard are the people that are not racist.
And so what is happening in Ferguson and in other places across the country is really disturbing.
It’s really troubling.
But it’s important that we have a discussion about how racism has been normalized and how that’s hurting us all.
LIKELY NOT RACIST.
When we say that police brutality is racist, what we are saying is that there is something inherently racist about people and about communities of race.
ROGER KLEIN: If there is any sort of inherent racism, then you need to look at your own community.
The very fact that police are there and are responding to people that don’t know who they are makes people uncomfortable.
That is not a good thing, so when we see that in the United States, the very fact we are seeing it, that we see these kinds of situations happening, I am afraid it is more about who has a better idea of how to live in a society.
RYAN WALLACE: It’s not racist to call out people for their racism.
It does make you uncomfortable, and you feel it and that makes you angry.
RACKETER: There is a racial component to police brutality that is being overlooked.
I am sure that there are police officers who are not racialized, who are in fact very well-spoken and very articulate.
ROLPH DICKERSON: And yet I’m going to
