With tragic incidents happening across the world involving white officers killing black citizens whom majority have been unarmed and not viewed as a threat; there seem to be a question on rather or not racism still exist? But, in 2017 you would think that those days are well behind us. You would think that with so much change in the world the different races would find that we have so much in common.
Well, there are two interracial friends who have a bond as if they were brothers, they never viewed one another as if one life mattered more or as if one didn't understand where the other come from. Together they just felt as if they were brothers from another mother. But one things for sure, when it comes to policing, they tend to judge many by their residence, description and media perspectives. The only problem with his pre-judgements are that they are followed by immediate disrespect of authority to all black citizens and at times their actions result in death because they don't value their life.
Unfortunately, by being an officer of the law, they tend to use their badge as a way to bail them out with many excuses that still doesn't justify their actions. So when officers know they have great chances of walking away after taking an innocent black life, they then go around living and feeling as if they are above the law.
