He is entitled to that view as are those who think its wrong because black people are not 5 times more likely to commit crimes. The logical extension of his position is however that he would be comfortable if gay people , women or children were subject to discrimination and police harrasment, which is a view though not the sort of society I think most people would want to live in.
Now please show me where I have said what you are accusing me of saying?
I didn't accuse you of saying anything, I extrapolated a logical conclusion to your thought process based on your worldview. Assuming that you think racism and sexism are equally abhorrent do explain where I'm going wrong?
Can i ask you to not draw conclusions on my thought process wether they be logical or not.
If they are logical then no, its a reasonable conclusion. If I'm wrong do explain.
