Q: Are black police officers hated in black neighborhoods?
Muhammad Rasheed - It depends on the neighborhood and what role the Black cops are actually taking.
- If the Black cops are fully assimilated into the anti-Black culture of the Fraternal Order of Police, then they will just be white supremacists in blackface. You can reasonably expect these ‘coon’ figures to have a recod of atrocities against Black people that match that of their white racist colleagues, and the Black people in the neighborhood will be justified in hating them.
- If the Black cops were recruited/appointed by strong pro-Black leadership as part of a dedicated Black Empowerment plan, then they can be reasonably expected to take the “serve & protect” aspect of their duties seriously on the local community level, and the hate may be unfounded.
