The stark truth about the relationship between police and minorities in America is that it has never been a good one. Too many police agencies have on their employment rolls too many white policemen with racist inclinations and with memberships into some hate groups.
Moreover, too few minorities are employed by police forces across the United States(US), while the few minority officers who join large forces, soon succumb to the culture of profiling their own people as possible offenders under a peer pressure scheme to honor the police code as a higher responsibility than that of service to the community and upholding equal protection under the law.
More recent shootings of Black males by police across America, especially the Tulsa, Oklahoma, shooting death of an unarmed father, underscore the rancid relationship police have with minorities. It is preposterous to adopt any policy that allows an average or less than average intelligent person to kill another because he/she claims a fear of life.
Allegedly well trained officers, have taken the jurisdiction upon themselves to make assessments to kill or not kill - skills way too far beyond their levels of intelligence, yet they continue to execute such with the blessings of politicians and courts because they claim service under a presumptive badge of honor and of community service. That honor has been tarnished, that community service has been cheated far too often.
The time for a new beginning, a reboot and a rethinking of the power placed into the hands of police officers, has dawned. The relationship between police and minorities has to improve. Minorities are the communities and they will not worship the police as police enjoyed during Jim Crow. If police treat minorities with respect and as equals to all others, then a settled relationship could begin.
