    I understand completely, and I knew where you were coming from.  I don't think an edit is at all called for.  :-)

    I just wanted to make the point that we have more problems than racism.  Not that racism isn't one of them, not by a very long shot -- but at this point, even if you could magically end racism in this country, there would still be the enduring problem of police militarism and brutality.

    Which is in large part a legacy of the war on your neighbor drugs.

    Which is almost entirely a result of racism.  So it's all the same root, but now there are more branches.

    Seriously, though, thanks for the excellent diary.  I just wish more people bothered to care about what their police are doing in their name.  Horrifying, isn't it?
