Candid Story and Thoughts on Racism and Cops

By now the entire nation has seen the video of Walter Scott

being wrongfully shot and killed by Officer Michael Slager. Officer Slager made a series of bad choices that killed Walter Scott.

Now the question is, if Scott simply followed directions and didn’t run away would he probably be alive right now?

A video of a young black man recounting his experience with a white police officer during a traffic stop is going viral on social media in the wake of more outrage over the shooting of an unarmed black man in South Carolina.

Army National Guardsman Will Stack, 22, said Wednesday that there were “no problems” being pulled over for “improper use of the median” when he turned left out of the Lexington County Courthouse in South Carolina.

 Will Stack made a video to let us know that if you are polite and do not make yourself look threatening to an officer doing his job, you may very well end up having a positive outcome.

“People need to understand that not all officers are crooked,” Stack said. “Not all officers are racist bad people, and not all people who get shot or tased or arrested by officers are innocent victims.”

“Just because you’re black doesn’t mean you’re a victim. Just because you’re white doesn’t mean you’re a racist. Just because you’re a cop doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. This world really needs to stop putting labels on people and things and see them as who they are. People. Doing Jobs. Doing things. Ignorance has no color. God doesn’t see color. Why should we?” 

He nails it.
