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.

I guess, not killing 21 people counts as „you better behave around police“. Coincidentally, that also happens to be the case where I live.
But let’s be constructive, shall we ? And help those stressed-out cops with a little manual:

white cop shoots white perp: not racist
black cop shoots white perp: not racist
white cop shoots black perp: most definitely racist
black cop shoots black perp: racist, just because

And now it gets tricky: cops of any imaginable skin tone shoot perp who they think is white, but isn‘t really. Oh dear…

And now the easy cases:
male cop of any given skin tone shoots female perp of any given skin tone: sexist, what else?
female cop of any given skin tone shoots female perp of any given skin tone: sexist does not even begin to describe it. I mean, really? Shooting a sister?

Hope that helps.
No need to thank me.

These simplistic hypotheticals are meaningless. We see the racism in the statistics:

And frankly, the pattern isn't that hard to see if you watch the news in the US.
