    There are ways to deal with racial injustices and perceived racial injustices which lead to healing and there are ways which inflame and result in violence and dead cops. You seem to prefer the latter.

    Besides, you need more data than two cases to make your case, or are you asserting that in every instance a white rapist is sentenced to 6 months and a black man to 15 years?

    These are just two examples, Bacon. The statistics are overwhelming that, for the same offense, a black person will more likely do time, and for a longer sentence, than a white person. To deny that it’s a problem is sticking your head in the sand.

    And no, I don’t see where Vit is advocating for violence.

    Though, I do wonder about all those “True Americans”, mostly white, mostly conservative, arming themselves to the teeth, advocating for open carry, who say they need to be ready to defend themselves against oppression. Aren’t THEY wanting to “inflame” and aren’t they advocating violence as a solution?

    Only in instances where it saves you or other innocent lives!

    Overall his type of rhetoric incites violence. For example posts like “White Cop Kills an Innocent Black Person Again” feeds the false narrative that white cops are out to get black people, and puts a target on the backs of the cops.

    This is not a gun problem and will only lead to more people wanting their own guns to protect themselves as police work becomes more dangerous. Law abiding citizens who own guns are NOT advocating violence as a solution, except as a last resort and for self-defense. Knocking off innocent white policemen doing their jobs to protect black and white people is not self-defense and is not justifiable. Are you really equating legal gun ownership with cop assassination?
