There is an actual problem at the foundation, and 99.99 percent of it lies within the black community. Cops are rightly scared to death to go in there these days.
No, as usual, it lies with the government and its expansion of powers and removal of oversight.
A quick survey of black culture indicates that this is incorrect. Your claim isn't any more credible than his.
Cops may be getting scared to "go in there", but they helped to bring about this situation. it will take cold, emotional-less logic to get us through to the other side.
Let us use that cold emotional-less logic.
1. Black culture includes strong elements that celebrate violence against police, and features an honor-culture that requires violent response in a variety of situations in order to maintain "face/cred". Black Culture is predominantly made up of broken families, the sons of whom are far more likely to grow up with education, drug, crime, and violence related issues.
2. Cops are more likely to interact with blacks because blacks are more likely to both commit and be the victims of crimes
, mostly for reasons outlined in point 1 above. Cops are also more likely to interact with blacks because that data point means that many are more attuned to be suspicious of blacks, and so they are more likely (in aggregate) to do things like pull them over for minor (or imagined, or nonexistent) traffic violations, and exhibit less risk tolerance for seeming threats.
3. Cops are not, however, more likely to shoot blacks than whites; they aren't out there wantonly murdering blacks, and when it can be established that one has, they go to the Justice system.
4. Blacks, often understandably upset and humiliated about being pulled over for minor, imagined, or nonexistent violations, project those feelings of humiliation onto stories of blacks being killed by cops, however, and assume that the reasons in those scenarios are just as trivial. So they are primed to believe narratives which confirm that bias, even when the particulars turn out to be falsehoods ("hands up don't shoot", for example).
5. Realizing this, media has begun to sensationalize each time a black person is killed by police, because you can get great ratings by confirming people's biases in ways that make them angry.
6. Prone (as are all humans) to the availability heuristic
, those individuals in the process of consuming that media begin to over-estimate the occurrence of these incidents, and assume that they are systematic. This then becomes part of a larger critique, the purpose of which is to assign blame for the problems outlined in item 1 on a white-dominated system, enforced by the police.
7. Lacking (see point 1) a strong civil society that would enable them to adequately address many of their internal problems, being rightfully angry about one of the unfortunate police reactions to those problems (profiling), and wishing to believe the lies told by a media hungry for 24 hour viewers and clicks that this is all the fault of those whom they don't like anyway, many blacks naturally find themselves comforted by artificially fed hyperbolic outrage cycles built on falsehoods, but which confirms their suspicions (incidentally, this problem is not unique to blacks - see: The Donald Trump Campaign).
But we prefer knee-jerk reactions and finger pointing...
You mean like blaming cops?
