A black professor is singled out for walking across the street within the university campus

*before anyone says she shouldve dropped face down as soon as the cop approached, imagine how incredulously any regular old entitled middle aged white male professor would've acted in the same situation


The fact that this black professor is expected to act differently, got treated differently by govt sanctioned authority and will have a different overall outcome in a court of justice than her white counterpart .... this is racism in 2014

On top of that, what about the costs and effects on her future, where she works, how much she earns, where she lives 
... the trauma from having her rights trampled physically and psychologically, an arrest record, the publicity ... come now

I don't think we should discount the effects of media manipulation...

The media/the government/society is doing its level best to have paint a certain picture of the world, and black people in it, so its explainable that some 63% of people may believe it...

I would like to hear more of MD's opinion, especially since she's from Tx.  (Fill in member name, I forgot) is also from Tx, with similar views.

Eta: I just remembered, cream?

I recommend that they section off 2 hours of their time to watch the PBS American Masters video that I posted on the last page of the BHM Black History thread. Im sure that they will benefit from the information and would probably be surprised to know that Jim Crow Laws (legal, systematic discrimination against Black Americans in America) were abolished only 9 years before I was born.

Everyone in USA or that plans to live or work in USA should watch it b/c the ignorance on legal discrimination and its repercussions is very widespread...
