With the recent fatal shootings of Keith Lamont Scott and Terence Crutcher, another round of conversations about race and policing is among us. Usually the gripes and rebuttals go on for a few weeks and then it dies out until the next fatal shooting of a black person by law enforcement. However, there is no actual solution and the conversation just keeps getting revisited. This is because the conversation was never an honest one to begin with. Media sources of all political ideologies seem obsessed with racism to the point that they have an emotional approach filled with logical inconsistencies. I don’t think that it’s a stretch to suggest that most sides are annoyed with the constant revisiting of this subject. Here are some key points that should be considered in order to have an honest conversation of substance with minimized confusion.
