“At least American racism is in your face. You know where you stand with your hood-wearing KKK, your skinheads, your police officers,” she says. “Our police officers in England are just as racist. The difference is our police officers aren’t allowed to carry guns, hence Black people don’t die in the same numbers.”
Hmmm... institutional racism backed policing without guns seems like a safer proposition to me. I also think just calling police officers racist sort of dilutes the problem. There's police officers who aren't racist participating in a system that propagates racism.
