Why doesn't it feel like America as a whole came together warranting the same swift accountability after viewing videos of Michael Brown being shot in the street by police, Eric Garner being choked to death by police in the street, and many other black men and women being basically murdered by police in the streets and on the corners of America?
Although I personally witnessed many white people come out in protest against police in both the Brown and Garner incidents, both incidents feels largely like "black" issues. The protests against what appears to be police misconduct has indeed been overwhelmingly black led and black attended. However, black people have also been just as outspoken against Ray Rice allegedly assaulting his fiancée. You don't hear many black people saying stuff like, "Wait until all the evidence is in" or "let's not jump to conclusions". In fact, you don't hear many white people saying that either after the release of the Ray Rice video this morning.
On the other hand, it is almost expected that when talking to white people when a white person may be on the punishing end of an incident to hear them quote the quotes above. On the contrary, when speaking to black people on issues where a black person may be on the punishing end of an incident, they tend to call it like they see it and is less likely to utilize such quotes as above. At least that's been my experience. Why is this? Someone please enlighten me.
