Over the past couple of years we have seen horrible executions of unarmed minorities across the country.Most of their deaths are caused by the main group of people that are suppose to “serve and protect” them: The Police.
From Oscar Grant to Eric Garner to Mike Brown, news reports have shown how just being black gives the police officers the right to shoot to kill.
Funny Or Die has addressed this situation with their latest sketch, Cop Vs. Black Guy. In the video is a black man sitting on his porch eating an ice cream cone when all of a sudden he is harassed by a white police officer asking why he is there. You will see the officer go from as Drake would say “0 to 100 real quick” while the man calmly tells him that he is on his OWN property minding his business. You will see the officer appear in a standard uniform and change up until he is in a Star Wars suit.
As ridiculous as this sketch was, I applaud Colton Dunn and Phil Augusta Jackson for bringing up the topic. Many people don’t like to talk about it while some want to pretend that racial profiling doesn’t happen and racism is over in America. I believe that by laughing about it more people will talk about it. The first step to overcome racism is to stop being in denial that it does not exist anymore right?
