I am just an uneducated son of a tobacco farmer, however I believe I have seen one of the best political move I have ever seen to get a long awaited issue on the table. The subject is “racist police.” Police that are unaware they are racist.
Now let us examine the facts. A high profile black man was arrested and taken from his home. The charges were dropped very fast by the prosecuting attorney. The President went on the air and used language most thought was inappropriate to describe the behavior of the arresting officer. All the the President’s opponents turn the words into a media fanfare. Then the President goes on the airways and makes amends for the words he used. He also said in a very soft way this was a racist issue. Now when his opponents bring up the subject he can state very firmly I made my amends for that statement, then the subject of racist police has been brought by his opponents. A subject that needs a continuous review.
