Well, go right ahead. Be the first. Move into inner city Baltimore where the riots just took place and go ahead and "figure out how to accept those who are different".
Deny who YOU are. I for one will opt out.

Yes, blacks are 10x more likely to be locked up than their white counterparts.
Yes, racism is still an issue in the US, but when we inject race into the police brutality issue, we only muddy the waters and make it harder to achieve real change.

Combat vets should never have to work again in my opinion.
Free livable wage for the rest of their lives?
I think that would be rather expensive for the US taxpayer.

As for the Black populations being targeted more than other races (whether by design or natural progression) is the failure to assimilate with the rest of society.
verb (used with object), assimilated, assimilating.
1. to take in and incorporate as one's own; absorb:
2. to bring into conformity with the customs, attitudes, etc., of a group, nation, or the like; adapt or adjust
assimilation, in anthropology and sociology, the process whereby individuals or groups of differing ethnic heritage are absorbed into the dominant culture of a society. The process of assimilating involves taking on the traits of the dominant culture to such a degree that the assimilating group becomes socially indistinguishable from other members of the society. As such, assimilation is the most extreme form of acculturation.
Attempts to compel minority groups to assimilate have occurred frequently in world history. The forced assimilation of indigenous peoples was particularly common in the European colonial empires of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.

okay I want to relate something I heard Pastor Jamal Bryant say. One of the reasons why people say black lives matter is because of the example of Denver Colorado shooter James Holmes who is a violent person who was "apprehended" as opposed to the "shooting" of Walter scott. (mulitiple times mind you)
