You do know that blacks are often stopped multiple times even when doing nothing wrong right? Ever heard of 'driving while black' or 'stop and frisk' (in NY)?
So this is why are they are commiting so many violent crimes(, because they are 'stopped and frisked', or is it maybe because they are do so much crime they get special attention from the police, unlike chinese americans for example? Blacks commit half of USAs murders being like 13% of population, it's a fact. If a police stops a person they can pretty much expect to be shot by young black man not old white lady, so i can see why they are a bit more on edge in those situations.
Sure, some of it is racism and I concede the point that often black people are treated unjustly, but most is experience unfortunately. But seriously I amazed most of the people shot by police are white and not black since looking at crime stats black districts are for sure policed a lot more.
this doesnt mean police approach to citizen shouldn't change- it should, but there is this one sided debate how racist police is there to get blacks and i don't really believe it is so. And there is a reason why black people get into conflicts with police more often than white per capita and that is not police fault.
