Two things: why comment on things you ( general you) know shit about in the first place?
And secondly: there’s enough racism already. Why are you so keen on inventing even more?

How close to Uvalde have you ever lived, and for how long? Let’s compare what we do and don’t “know shit about”, shall we?

I invented nothing. Numbers talk, bullshit walks. If you aren’t white in this fucking place, you goddamned better behave around police. Brown lives matter less here.

Did the shooter in Uvalde signal that he was surrendering? Then it becomes a problem that he was shot by law enforcement personnel. If that's not the case, then I think it's entirely irrelevant whether somebody who had already shot and killed nearly two dozen people was "behaving himself appropriately" in the presence of police officers.

If your point is that the cop's ethnicity doesn't matter when the perpetrator is brown or black, and that we're now discussing endemic racism in police forces, I'll still consider it, but not in a thread devoted to proliferating gun violence perpetrated by people who are not law enforcement officers. If it ever comes out the LEOs on the scene in Uvalde dithered a little too long because they were considering the ethnicity of the perp, that will be interesting to me in a different way.
