YDI for running away from the cops which means you get in more in trouble. I wonder why you were running away from the cops?
Right, when police shoot minorities in situations like in Oscar Grant's case, then you'll understand why there's a climate of fear amongst some communities. I'm not saying this is op's case, but don't act so cock-sure of what's deserved, when that info wasn't given.
I hate the minority card, it is tossed around way to often these days. And where I am from, even tho it is my home country, I am the minority! Too bad just because I'm white, I don't have access to that particular card. Racial discrimination happens to every culture so don't assume the OP is running away because he is another color and the cop is a racist
You're completely failing to get my point, the thread was making assumptions to a certainty, while I was providing a case that it's not so black and white. It was an example of a scenario that could've happened(as it has happened and provides a reasonable explanation as to why someone would prefer running), however, nobody knows because op didn't provide the info. Now, grow two brain cells to rub together and lets call it a day, okay? 160 - a minority in "your" country? Way to sabotage your own argument by sounding like a racist. Us white people are still the majority, but instead of 50+% of the pop, let's say we're about 40ish%. If I have to break it down as to why we're still the majority with those numbers, you applied those critical thinking skills wrong.
140 - Like I said in an earlier post, op was more than likely doing something to catch the attention of the police, however, other posters were stating that running from the cops means you must've done something wrong, as if they were applying that stance beyond this Fml. I attempted to put things into perspective, and suggest that it's not always the case.
Actually I see more people of other cultures than I do of mine where I am from. My husband is Chinese, my best friend is Indian, and my brother in law who I adore is African, I am way so far from racist. I have many brain cells, would you like to borrow them. You weren't providing another example, you were pulling the minority card to start an argument because you have nothing better to do. I'm glad as I have nothing better to do while I ride the bus work. Enjoy your small mindedness
You made 2 mistakes. 1. You got the cops chasing you. 2. You jumped over a fence without looking at the landing first. I hope you learned a lesson. :P
