Certainly, this crime [was] motivated by the racial hatred of that cop towards the black race as a whole
How can we be certain
or even reasonably confident at this point that Chauvin acted out of racial hatred or bias? Is it possible he could've done what he did for some other reason? It seems like most folks think it's impossible. This scares the hell out of me, because that means justice is defined by perception and not fact. In other words, we operate in a world where lies can be deemed truth as long as enough people can be persuaded that the lie is truth. This is what Benedict XVI defined as the tyranny of relativism.
it's acceptable to use kneeling on someone's neck as a form of restraint.
But, then again when we clock in everyday to work, our jobs hold almost no probability that we'll need to restrain someone. So, yes, it is hard to imagine. But, if you are in an environment where the probability of restraining someone is pretty decent, it may not be hard at all to imagine it. It probably would be unimaginable that such a technique wouldn't be acceptable. Don't get me wrong, from what we know and have seen, this MN cop was, at least, negligent and showed a wanton disregard for Floyd's life--8 minutes on the neck is hard to justify.
There are huge racial problems in the US, that is fact and you know that
True, but the question is why? Are these problems based in fact or manufactured lies?
The perception is that cops are racists. That whites are either racists or complicity racists? I am being told I'm complicity racist because I don't speak out against the brutality cops inflict upon blacks because of the racist condition of cops or the systemic racism of American society that denies equal opportunity to blacks. But, i don't speak out against it because I don't see the veracity of the perception that blacks are preyed upon by police or that blacks are denied opportunity. In fact, I see the opposite.
As JR in his crude inelegance :) pointed out, untold Billions of dollars have been spent to ensure blacks have equal opportunities. Some have taken advantage of these opportunities, others haven't. Others have to said to hell with taking advantage of a program and, instead, have worked their asses off to succeed.
Something else to consider when this perception of lack of opportunity is bandied about: of the estimated $14 trillion of purchasing power in America, $1.5 trillion is held by blacks. 11% of the purchasing power in America is held by 13% of the population; in other words, blacks hold a concomitant percentage of purchasing power in relationship to its population. Now, this may not be a perfect marker of equal distribution, but it does suggest significant economic opportunities have been taken advantage of by the black population. In other words, there isn't a sign of lack of opportunity.
This notion that cops prey on blacks is categorically and empirically false.
Percentage by race killed by cops since 2015:
Whites - 50.5%
Blacks - 26.4%
Hispanic - 18.5%
Other - 4.5%
When half of those killed by cops are white, you'd think that that fact alone would disprove the myth that cops prey on blacks. But, what you'll hear is, but blacks are disproportionately killed when you consider that blacks make up 13% of the population. But, if you are to measure these stats per total population, you'd have to assume that all people, regardless of race are dangerous criminals. The best way to measure these stats is per violent crime.
In America percentage of violent crimes by race:
Whites - 43.3%
Blacks - 37.5%
Hispanics - 15.2%
Other - 4%
The above stats are reality. What most people perceive is not congruent with the above reality, but a manufactured perception of untruth.
The problem in America isn't race, but:
All that Neo-Marxist red scum and lots of spoiled American morons
