Ask yourself, would Black folks rally around and raise $ for a black cop who killed an unarmed white teenager?
Racism is the collective behaviors of white people, it is systematic power. What is white collective power? Collective power is the institutions and systems that benefit one group at the expense of another group, and allow one group to dominate another group in all areas of human activity. For example, when a white policeman shoots an unarmed black man, his fellow officers, the police chief, internal affairs, the union, the media, the prosecutor, thejudge, and the jury will support, defend, and finance that white police officer’s “right” to shoot (murder) an unarmed black person.

In St. Louis, for what reason did White prosecutor, Robert McCulloch (above) choose to use a (75% white) grand jury to decide whether white cop Darren Wilson should face charges in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown - instead of just using his power to file a complaint himself? white supremacy/racism.) McCulloch is the son of a St. Louis police officer who was killed in the line of duty when McCulloch was twelve years old. [MORE]
From [HERE] An online fund-raising drive for Darren Wilson (cop in photo), a white Mo., police officer who shot an unarmed Black teenager to death on Aug. 9 surpassed $300,000 by Saturday afternoon, as dozens of people gathered at a St. Louis pub to rally on the lawman’s behalf.
One fund-raising web page raised so much money in so few days that it was shut down and a second page was opened, with its donations being directed to a fund managed by the local Fraternal Order of Police lodge. In all, the two pages, which both are on the crowdfunding website gofundme, have raised more than $300,000 for the officer, Darren Wilson.
“The individual who started the fund didn’t realize it would get so big,” said a woman who organized Saturday’s rally. When pressed for her name, she said only, “I am Darren Wilson,” a play on the popular mantra that followed the shooting death in Florida of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager.
The woman said donations were pouring in from around the nation from people of different races, most of whom were afraid to show their faces or publicly give their names. The site had to remove nasty comments being posted by people angry at Officer Wilson and by people criticizing the 18-year-old he shot, Michael Brown.
A related Facebook page for Officer Wilson had nearly 60,000 “likes.” The rally organizer said the page was being monitored for vitriol.
“We are working around the clock to clear the hate,” she said. [MORE]
