That’s a good post and appreciated. How did you become a socialist and manage to stay so reasonable?

Anyway your last sentence about getting away with shit because you’re less pigmentally-challenged. After the attempted overthrow of the government by white supremacist forces, I doubt white guy messing around with firearms on the hood of his car at a rest area, heading anywhere near DC gets overlooked.

I know that people have biases and am sure that the way people look comes into play in many law enforcement situations but I reject the knee jerk overreaction where police are automatically racists any time something bad happens. I think it’s more than fair to say that if your first reaction to being pulled over is to tell the cops to go fuck themselves and jump back in your car to drive away then you also bear a share of responsibility.
