Overt and wanton police abuse analogous to societal sepsis leak 2

I (despite Caucasian visage) plus concomitant anatomical accouterments immediately grant badge of honor and status of greater worthiness, when doggone truth does not merit me automatic immunity against racial profiling nsync, where upon birth said black people unfairly falsely labeled hooligan disproportionately assumed accountable regarding crimes and misdemeanors essentially faulting gregarious person unknowingly caught in crosshairs where twenty first century bounty hunter experiences little or no compassion towards dignified people, whereat mine preferred modus operandi to communicate utter disgust (think malevolent treatment) at mercy of cops, née outright killers more keen to loose a deadly bullet versus win/win situation comprising proactive conversations. Though red hot poker anger clearly evidenced courtesy peaceful altercation (granted hoodlums abound within fray to wreak bedlam), but initial and foremost justification explaining madding crowds solely seeking redress asper grievances maiming or killing decent, kind, respectable neighbor which hypothetical gal/guy going about her/his ordinary business all the while watched, scrutinized, notated... simply because she/he happens to belong to proud people of color! I believe the pen (er... or keyboard) more powerful than the sword (substitute agitation, fisticuffs, melee...) to recognize dignity of brethren and sistern despite superfluous characteristic namely melanocytes in some individuals and ethnic groups which produce variable amounts of melanin.
