Re: Where's the Thread on "George Floyd" ????Aug 7th, 2020
I often hear the passive-aggressive question from so-called conservatives why "Black people never support police." And my answer is "They do. Every day. Not a day goes by when there isn't a Black preacher, a Black city councilperson, a Black community organizer, or some other Black leader in the office of the mayor of some big city or another begging and pleading for more police. Just because Breitbart doesn't report it don't mean it ain't happening."
But of course Walter is relying on the good ol' logical fallacy of false dichotomy. He is essentially positing the idea that you have only two choices: take the police as they are now, with overpolicing, inadequate training, significant white supremacy in the ranks, and near-total immunity for whatever they do, or get nothing.
I have a hard time believing that supposedly intelligent adults fall for this kind of horse shit on a regular basis, but then again, I don't look at TV.
