View Diary: Poll: White people a lot more likely than black people to think police treat racial groups equally (182 comments)

  •  I was wondering about Ice Cube playing a cop (3+ / 0-)

    Going from "Fuck Tha Police" to playing a cop.  And in "Barbershop" the cops save the day (the cop in charge is black).

    And I was thinking-- even gangsta rappers (or former gangsta rappers) are trying to improve the image of cops in the black community by focusing on good cops who do their job and try to keep people safe.

    So it tells you how awful and racist the police are overall that only 10% of blacks think the police treat people equally.

    I bring it up because I've always been into all those gangsta raps that are anti-police.  I've been playing "Fuck Tha Police" a lot lately.
