Where’s “The Talk” When We Need It?

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 9/4/2020 1:17:28 PM

For many years now, we’ve gotten mountains of press about “The Talk,” the rite of passage lecture that black parents feel obliged to give their sons so that they won’t end up getting shot by the police. Apparently, unlike white people who are always fighting with cops and resisting arrest, young black men must be purer than Caesar’s wife. (Snip)Having seen video footage of the arrests of George Floyd (fighting with cops), Rayshard Brooks (fighting with cops) and Jacob Blake (fighting with cops), it looks like at least some black men in America could use a refresher course on “The Talk.”


But wait, there’s more. Ann goes on to talk about there being no such largesse when it comes to white men like Kyle Rittenhouse. Good article….

Do they think white boys don't get the same talk??? Or maybe we learned it because we saw our fathers do it when they got pulled over. My father gave me a lot of other advice, too, like (being a country boy) don't walk or drive across somebody's field and definitely don't hunt on someone else's land if you don't have permission. The farmer/landowner might shoot you as a trespasser. Same for messing with somebody else's livestock or even their dogs. Yeah, he would be wrong to shoot you, but you'll be dead and can't argue with him.

Chris Rock put it out as a video. I don't bother with Ann any more. She has expended her entire good will account, like many other formerly conservative writers.

Do they think white girls didn't get The Talk? I did when I got my driver's license. My father told me pull over, keep your hands on the wheel and be polite. It's not hard to do.

If black parents are, in fact, giving 'The Talk' then why do so many of their kids have run-ins with the police? It's a tired old trope that a traffic stop involving a black person will turn into some sort of Wild West standoff and that police have any interest in intimidation, threats, harassment, etc. The reality is that police cruisers have computers, radios, phones, plate readers, etc. They know who you are, your arrest record, your vehicle registration info from the plates, etc. before they ever approach your car - unless it's stolen of course. They aren't going to be surprised if you're black and because every stop is usually video recorded and logged they aren't going to stop you merely because you're black. Of course, this common sense/21st century technological reality tends to invalidate all the victimhood which is why it's roundly ignored.

I forget the exact number, but I believe I read that it took 7 minutes for Officer Lane (Minneapolis PD) to get George Floyd, sitting in his car, to put his hands on the steering wheel where Lane could see them.

Nobody gave me that talk. Nor did any of my friends, to my knowledge. In the rare case I encountered a cop nothing happened. But I didn't grow up being overwhelmed by tribal accounts that cops just want to kill me.

Thanks for the late newsflash, Ann anti-Trumper. The point about BLM not wanting to be around large numbers of black people has already been put out there by Tommy Sotomayor. Also, Tommy said these BLM blacks are not "real" blacks or they would not stand by and let these white guys yell n*&^r at other white guys.

I am a white female. I received "the talk" about how to act if I'm pulled over. I have been pulled over three times in the past thirty-five years. Each time I was courteous and drove away with a warning. One situation was an obvious speed trap at the bottom of a very steep hill and I still received a warning. Being courteous and apologetic, if necessary, will work more often than not. Many cities have been burned in retaliation for the deaths of people who'd still be alive today had they only followed the directions of the police officers involved. That part is lost on the SJW crowd, the news media and liberal politicians.

I’m a white female too and though I don’t remember a specific talk, I seemed to always have known that I was supposed to show respect to law enforcement. And every other adult for that matter. Of course, I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s.

How about a couple of suggestions for blacks afraid of being shot by white cops: "Obey the law." If you are detained by police, "Obey their lawful commands." If you break the law, disobey their lawful commands, get tased twice by police trying to arrest you, and try to get into your vehicle with a knife, don't be too surprised if you get shot.

With the exception of the protected class, most young people realize that common sense dictates you do not get belligerent with a person carrying a gun. ANY person. If that person is wrong you are not going to fix anything on the spot - deal with it later in the proper way.

The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association board has switched its endorsements of Democrat candidates to Republican after one Democrat candidate was purportedly caught on video beating a piñata with the likeness of top police union official Bob Kroll. Fox News reports: Minneapolis state house candidate John Thompson stood outside the police union leader’s home and and gave an expletive-laden speech to a crowd of Black Lives Matter demonstrators in August. “Come on over here with your ‘Blue Lives Matter’ sign,” he said. “Blue lives ain’t s—, and if people in Hugo don’t support black people, f— Hugo.” Thompson had won his primary in the heavily Democratic district the week before.

Retired judge John Gleeson argued Friday that the Department of Justice (DOJ) should not be allowed to drop charges against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn because his guilt is “obvious” and the DOJ has become “corrupt.” Gleeson was appointed by Judge Emmet Sullivan to submit an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief arguing against prosecutors’ motion to drop charges against Michael Flynn after exculpatory evidence emerged following a DOJ review.Sullivan originally sought amicus briefs arguing why he should not find Flynn in criminal contempt of court for changing his original guilty plea, for the crime of lying to the FBI, to a plea of not guilty after exculpatory evidence

President Donald Trump’s policy excluding undocumented immigrants from census data violates the law, a panel of federal judges ruled, blocking it from taking effect. Three judges in Manhattan on Thursday ruled that Congress hadn’t given the president authority for the policy. The case, brought by several states including New York and advocacy groups, is notable because census results are used to determine representation in the House of Representatives and to allocate federal funds.Throughout the nation’s history, the figures used to determine the apportionment of Congress -- in the language of the current statutes, the ‘total population’ and the ‘whole number of persons’ in each state -- have included every person residing

Ever since Attorney General Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion probe, Trump supporters have been waiting for the bomb to drop. And waiting. And waiting. But nothing ever happens. Judicial Watch’s founder Tom Fitton thinks that conservatives are being scammed. Instead of an investigation, it’s just another Washington cover-up. I suspect (or, maybe, hope), though, that Barr and Durham are holding their fire because of the election. Tom Fitton, whose organization doggedly uncovers documents the Swamp wants to hide, was on Fox News’ Lou Dobbs Tonight. He is concerned that the John Durham investigation is a sham

The NFL is back. Spread the word. Thursday night’s season-opening matchup between the Chiefs and Texans attracted 19.3 million viewers between 8 and 11 p.m. That marks a 12.3% drop from last year’s ratings, which ended with an audience of 22 million. Deadline noted that the key 18-49 demographic pulled in a 5.2 rating, falling from last year’s 12.8 mark. It is likely that multiple factors played into the drop, including social justice messages, which have been present, while audience sizes have reduced across all sports in recent months.
