What’s black and blue and crooked all over?
The New York Police Department (NYPD). And after years of flashing their shiny badges and guns into the faces of innocent black men, destroying family and community structure with the war on drugs, and instilling fear by implementing “Stop & Frisk,” there’s isn’t much room for error on the black man’s part as he meanders through life as law enforcement’s hobby and worst fear.
Who you gonna call? Not the NYPD.The police have maimed and killed our young and old, falling back on false claims, little evidence, and assumptions that justify their actions. And with no consequence, new throngs of police are coming out of the academy with the same perspective…and permission…that aided in the wrongful deaths of Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Patrick Moses Dorismond, and most brutality, the beating and sodomizing of Abner Louima.All of which have sent clear messages to black men. Don’t pull out your wallets. Dare to be intoxicated in public. Make sure you don’t try to break up a fight. And fu ck it…just don’t have black skin. Period.You might get shot at 41 times.
 
These are all examples of the NYPD’s war on black men, but each police department or law enforcement agency around the nation has done their part throughout history to ensure that black communities distrust them, so much so that an innate fear of flashing lights, black boots, gold badges, and gun holsters shake the core even when a crime is not committed.
