Another day, another white cop assaults a black person who was basically doing nothing except sitting there … being black.
We need to have a national conversation about this because there are only so many times that Megyn Kelly can say a black girl is “no saint,” before Bill O’Reilly accuses her of “molly-coddling those people” and that is why cops are dying.
Since the video of Officer Ben Fields impressing the kids with his WWE chair-throwing skills went viral, concerned white conservatives have flocked to Twitter to be helpful. They are doing this by sharing valuable life experiences with black people on how to handle themselves when confronted with a cop in the precious fifteen seconds or so before they are wrestled to the ground and Tasered and beaten.
If you are black, these tips may prove very helpful — because they have ALWAYS worked for white people and because we are now living in a colorblind post-racial we-have-a-black-president-for-gawds-sakes I-am-not-a-racist-but.. and also I-have-a-black-friend world.
Here’s an idea. If #BlackLivesMatter, and they do, maybe teach your kids to respect authority and not seek out trouble with cops.

As a student, Ive never disrespected the authority of a teacher or a cop. I don’t know why today it’s suddenly acceptable to do that.

My momma taught me to respect authority and that if I don’t, I will get whooped. If you don’t respect a cop and comply, then guess what :)

Black youth DO NOT respect authority. Then, when cops get called they cry “victim”. Boo Hoo. NO sympathy. https://t.co/4XsJzJD27t

@LernxJerky You folks don’t get it. When you obey the rules & listen to the authority figures, things like this don’t happen. Her own fault!

#assaultatspringvalleyhigh Its amazing that a generation thinks they can just resist authority/talk back and not get any repocussions.
