So should I hate all white police officers just because a few pulled me over for no reason?

Do you act differently in the slightest amount around cops?

People that "hate" an entire group of people based off of their interactions, or what they perceive seriously need to die off.

Only you can change your behavior. Sitting around pouting that the other person must do it or else, just doesn't work. If you take for example, a couple that gets married but one spouse already knew that the other is a spender. It is does not work to say or feel that "I will change h/her afterwards. It would also be destructive to join the "spending" behavior.


So based on that hearsay, you have instilled in yourself racist or negative behavior. My knowledge on scholarships is that they are either need or merit based. One is socio-economic and the other is based on academics or having a talent (sports, playing a certain instrument, etc).

I remember sometime ago walking in New Orleans and this white 5 year old holding his mother's hand passed me going in the opposite direction. The kid pointed and said, "Mom, there is a n**ger." His mother did not scold him or even apologize. They just continue walking like nothing happened. How does a kid learn that so young? At the breakfast table.
You handled the situation better than I would've...

So because a handful (a small handful at that) of people act a certain way, that causes you to feel that way about the entire race of people? That's pretty pathetic.

Assuming you're white, do you hate white people because of mass murderers like Adam Lanza and James Holmes?

What about the white guy that killed 8 people last night in Missouri?

The good news is that they are.

Of course, there will always be racists, but the number will be very low.

Naw. A cop to me is just another driver on the road when they're not actively responding to an emergency.

Of note, I don't speed and I use all of the proper indicators when I drive. I don't stare at them, randomly slow down, or anything like that.

You should not wish this on yourself.

Haha! Please link me one post which insinuated that I hate an entire race of people because of the actions of some, don't worry I'll wait.

Ain't this the pot calling the kettle Black. You're the epitome of what I was describing, all you do is categorize people (Blacks) and make asinine assumptions.

Thanks for the laugh though!

True, it sucks that some of these same people are in positions of power though.
