    Is this the UK reporting about America or itself? Where is this happening?

    This is a really good article to make easy marks feel oppressed. This kind of BS happens to everyone, but if you isolate certain incidents you can push a false narrative....and clearly that's what was being done here. The police get millions of calls every year with people reporting "suspicious activity" or about a "suspicious person" and the vast, vast majority of those calls end up being nothing....and have nothing to do with race. Of course none of that matters when people are pushing a narrative.

    Then again, the same kind of people who push these kinds of narratives are the same people who talk about "300 years of slavery" meaning that in their minds they'll finally be freed next year.

    Yes, it is the UK reporting this.

    You know just like how American papers report on stuff happening in the UK.

    You really don't miss any chance.

    Now the cops and Redditt are pushing a narrative?

    Really Bobby?

    And the vast majority of rapes are not committed against children. Should we not single out child rape from other rape?

    Well...yeah. You do know that happens right?

    Also, this is the same country that went after a little girl for posting rap lyrics on a social media site as a tribute to a dead friend of hers calling it a hate crime. The Brits are r****ded when it comes to this kind of thing.

    Ah, so having someone call in a suspicious person report is like rape when it is a non black person and it is like child rape when it's a black person. Awesome to know.

    What happens?

    Cops push a narrative about black people being harassed?

    Are you really serious?

    You know, this whole thing could be solved easily. We need to have a board of distinguished elders that "certify" which black people are safe and those that are not. All the safe black people (those without children born out of wedlock, those that have a college degree and listen to country music) would then get a prominent facial stamp guaranteeing that they are safe and not disruptive.

    I know it would be expensive, but it would just make life easier and safer for everyone. Maybe even implant a chip in their skull so the police know if they are certified black people when they make a traffic stop.

    Yes. Again, this is the same country that had police go after a teenage girl for posting rap lyrics in tribute to a dead friend calling it a hate crime. Again the Brits are absolutely r****ded when it comes to this kind of thing and they constantly push BS narratives. BTW, given their backwards laws, the girl was convicted.

    According to you all suspicious person reports that don't amount to anything are equal, so we should ignore the racist ones, presumably even if they're on the rise, which would be indicative of a trend of racism becoming more widespread. That's a bad thing.

    According to you, any suspicious person report involving a black person is racist. I hope you know that's a really stupid take....like, an embarrassingly stupid take.

    Okay, then how are you determining which reports are "racist" and which ones are not? I mean, how do you determine that ANY of them are "racist" with no more information than the race of the people involved?

    I'll take your "Okay" as the first ever Bobby retraction/correction/apology in the history of this board.

    You'd have to look at the details of each call, obviously. Why are we limited to "no more information than the race of the people involved"?
