... Racism is not about the temperaments or choices of individual actors. It is a structural dynamic.

Balto says reforms oriented around individual behaviors are unlikely to work. “The institution of policing remains fundamentally racist,” he says. “On the one hand, you do have a net positive [with Black police] of fewer stops, arrests, and use of force when you have a more diverse police force. But you still have a police force that is still operating within a racist superstructure. Part of the challenge is to rethink the very nature of the structure of public safety, because the police don’t have a good track record of ensuring public safety.”


Isn't it of course suspect when you want to hide the data to make these kinds of studies possible in the first place. Public trust..., my ass. DEFUND!
