      in response to this sentence:

      "POC on the other hand are not likely to be in shock that the system isn't working for them since it seldom has. They are also not so likely to be so shocked over police violence since they are much more familiar with it."

      i know the ethnic/racial mix varies widely by city and region, but the assumption of a predominantly black/white discourse of race really does not work in CA. it used to, a genertation or two ago, but it doesn't anymore.
