Your claim that white men are disproportionately more likely to be serial or spree killers is based on prejudice and stereotypes, not facts and statistics.
Not agreeing with me doesn't make you a racist
...other people think otherwise because they have a racist perspective.
Saying we need to have an adult conversation about it is a great smoke/mirrors way to cram racist propaganda down people's throats.
If you aren't "colorblind" (ie you dont care/think about anybodies skin color) then you have some sort of race based agenda.

When he sees one wearing red/blue's, or is tatted up from face to waist, or is dressed in a way that asserts an affiliation, this is known as CRIMINAL PROFILING.
There is a reason black kids with a "toy gun" on a playground are taken more seriously as a threat. This is not racism.

No, actually what happens is black men are more likely to be arrested for their crimes, and SENTENCED - often times because black men are MORE LIKELY to not be able to affoard bail, lawyer fees, or other privilages that white people are MORE LIKELY to have access to.
race is an issue to you guys because it only matters if the cop is white and the alleged victim not white.

A discussion on use of force has nothing to do with race though
That's your opinion. Other people think otherwise.
Regardless of whether or not race is part of the issue, it must be addressed.
