“But I will say this – that the kinds of ongoing problems we have with police and communities of color around the country are not of the sort that we saw in Selma. We’re not talking about systematic segregation or discrimination. They are solvable problems if in fact law enforcement officials are open to the kind of training and best practices that we’ve seen instituted in lot of parts of the country… What I have confidence in is that if we do a better job of training our law enforcement to be sensitive to the concerns of minority communities… so they can distinguish between a gangbanger and a kid who just happens to be wearing a hoodie but just otherwise is a good kid and not doing anything wrong.”
Once again… Trayvon Martin was shot dead in Sanford, Florida after he jumped a neighborhood watchman and wrestled him for his gun.
Not because he was wearing a hoodie.
