There still is an issue with police brutality in this country. Obviously not like back in the day, but if you're old, you've lived through the racism of the past and now you have to witness the racism of the present, so perhaps that was where OP's grandpa's remarks came from.

Police brutality isnt as bad as a lot of people think 9. The media makes a ton of profits from it so they talk about it more than the good police do. People don't do research on things they see on the internet/tv.

Half the cases that the media covers are incredibly biased. When you look at the other side in *some* cases you can see how the cop could have acted that way. Cops are human, and we would find it more appropriate for one to die on the job then defend himself. It's a sad mentality. On the other hand, it's tragic to see how some bad cops handle violence and how poorly minorities have been treated and how easily situations escalate. The media needs to hold both sides accountable. It's a tragedy all around.

I really hope when all of his generation dies, racism will just go away. But that might take a while longer still. Anywho FYL OP, I hope you never consider his statement as civil duty.

Even with the death of that entire generation, racism will never be completely gone. You forget that racism and hatred are taught. Look at the video of the two little girls who cry at the sight of the black baby dolls they were gifted. That's a whole new generation being taught discrimination.

What's the video called and what's the context? I didn't want black dolls when I was little, but not because I had anything against black people I just wanted the dolls to look like me. I didn't even like white, brunette dolls because I'm blonde. And i know black kids that don't white want dolls because it doesn't look like them. It's not racist they just want to identify with them.

Hmmn well racism still exists even in this generation.

As long as you know you will make a difference in whatever career you decide to pursue...that's all that counts.
