White interracially married sudden paradigm shift.

I’ve realized my own white privilege for some time now. But being the white female half of an interracial marriage, I suddenly experience America in a new frightening way. My husband is a 6’4″ 300 lb black man. I have a plan worked out in my mind of how I can shield his body from police gunfire should I need to. I’m mourning the loss of my innocent and naive view of police in the USA.

    93% of the time that a black man is shot in the United States, it isn’t by some trigger happy white cop. It isn’t by a biracial Hispanic man in Florida. It’s by another black man! Stop buying into the sensationalism that is libtard TV. If all I watched was the garbage American news programs, I would swear that blacks are under siege. The truth is, you are 36 times more likely to be the victim of a violent crime committed by a black person, than he is to be the victim of a white person’s violence.

      Eric Lencher, Stats are incorrect, The media you spoke of, is the same media that throughout time, helped to write the His-Story books we were taught from. Learn HISTORY, of more than just your race but others as well, it may serve you well.

    Barbara, while it’s good that you’re aware, you can walk around in fear either. Contrary to those on the right who believe black men deserve to be profiled, and subject to excessive force, every cop isn’t the bad guy. There are a few bad apples in every police force and they, unfortunately, give PDs a bad name.
