So while Obama calls for Americans to come together, he’s actually calling more racial division based on shoddy evidence. Obama says, “regardless of the outcome of such investigations, what’s clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.” That’s a way of lumping together instances that are statistically isolated with a broader trend of incarceration of minorities disproportionate to the general population, but absolutely proportionate to commission of crime.
But facts don’t matter here. All that matters is whether Democrats can make hay by proclaiming – as always – that America and her cops are racist.
