"As an American, a black male in this country, I'm suggesting, calling -- I'm demanding that all 50 state attorney generals call for a review of their policies and training policies for police and law enforcement to eliminate militaristic cultures while putting a higher emphasis on de-escalation tactics and crisis management measures," Baldwin said.
"There should not be an inherent risk when you have an encounter with law enforcement," Baldwin said. "There should not be a concern or worry that the law enforcement is not there to protect you. And I think we're raising a culture or society right now that is questioning that very sentiment."

Kapernick spoke to an Oakland, CA High School football team today, one that is mainly Black and Hispanic/Latino players, before they went to the field,. If I were the coach of those teams, I would have not allowed Kapernick to speak to the team and those players, even if the stars, who laid down or gave a 'Black Power' salute would be sent to the locker room and not play in the game. Sure I bet the ACLU would sue the coach and school on 'free speech' grounds, but public school students on school functions or on property have limited free speech rights as the Supreme Court has supported in recent years. The Black Power salute has historical connections to violent groups of Black persons in the late 1960's and into the early 1980's, with a few murdering police officers (like happened on I-80 in NJ). To many White people, it is as offensive as a Nazi salute. As I noted before, these protests are counterproductive in the long run, distract from the job of the players, may trigger more hate by White people. Perhaps the media should ignore such protests, not give TV or internet time to them, and just focus on the game.

As far as I know, there have not been any protests, or folks busing in to march, over the 6 dead, and 15 wounded by gunshots, in Chicago, since Friday. That story hasn't managed to squeeze out the wall-to-wall coverage over 1 death of a felon in NC.

The usual race baiting deniers demand that all black and minorities protest exactly as they demand, and anything else is just nonsense. See, first they use the b.s. nonsense that "they don't understand", then when pinned down they start screaming minorities need to do A., B., and C. BEFORE they can protest. See minorities can't use black power signs, until they show up and protest a gang-banger shooting in some random shooting first. These same deniers were around in the civil rights era of 1965, as they are now. Next they will start posting they aren't racist themselves because they have a couple of African American friends they work with down at the Archie Bunker plant.
