    No. You also assume racism IS prevalent! Nearly 30% of police are minorities. Also, last year 10 unarmed Blacks were killed by police while 20 unarmed Whites were. The former officer that killed Floyd felt he was screwed over by Floyd in a business dealing by him, also atypical involvement for police and civilians.

    No. There is no inherent racism in police. Floyd may not have even been racism. The cop and Floyd had worked together in a bar and did not get along. It might have been a personal vendetta.

    I don't think that.

    I think it's a very stark example of poor police procedures and a guy, so used to using dangerous chockholds and deaf to peoples distress because that is everday for him. 

    And its everyday for Black Americans. 

    The casual indifference to the suffering of a fellow human being is a tragedy for both the police and their victims.

    No. Only racist Democrat cops murder blacks. That said, even a racist Democrat cop would not intentionally murder a black when he knew people were filming him. Democrats are stupid, but not that stupid.

    If you think that the actions of Derek Chauvin are typical of all police officers then you shouldn't complain if someone says that the actions of Tyrone Woodfork are typical of all black people.
