I’m liking the inflatable Halloween decorations at Lowe’s.
I just don't understand how you can be a fucking cop with how they treat poc

I’m failing to see how you’re unable to understand PRECISELY because of how some officers treat POC, that I am an officer.
It has been known for decades that those with blatant white supremacist ideology, those who adhere to strict patriarchal values, openly detest GLBT persons, believe feminism to be an utter waste, male privilege to be made-up, and white skin privilege a fallacy, have become politicians and joined our military or police departments, in order to carry out their ideology of oppression.
My question is why have more of us who are often caught in the cross hairs of societally inflicted oppression haven’t joined these very institutions themselves.
What would you have me do? Abandon my career, say goodbye to the steadily growing coalition of officers who think and act as I do, and are slowly changing how policing is done? Elevating it to a level of consciousness never represented before? Is that what you would have me do? To stop educating officers on the inside of privileges and types of oppression they had either never heard of, or never thought worthy of deep and critical thought?
I’m angry about how these oppressed groups are treated too. I am doing something constructive with my anger. There is a reason being a traitor to one’s country is viewed as particularly detestable. It’s because change occurs from within. Empires crumble and are remade from within.
Would you have me remove myself from within this organization? If your answer is “yes”, you don’t want change. You just want to be fruitlessly enraged.
