Today was my first time reading Obama’s “America is not a post racial society” and I loved how he tried to explain the African American point of view, so that others (outside of the black community) could better understand and share the same feelings as us. In the speech he also explained ways to better our law enforcement so that an Trayvon Martin incident doesn’t happen again. Well, as we can see that isn’t the case because there has been several different incidents that happen after that. However, Obama did have interesting ideas to help citizens gain back some trust with the law enforcement. He mentioned that “it’d be productive for the Justice Department, governors, mayors, to work with law enforcement about training at the state and local levels in order to reduce the kind of mistrust in the system that sometimes currently exists.” I totally agree with this, I think the enforcers of the law should be trained differently. Maybe if they were trained differently, their (the officers who kill unarmed black men) first thought wouldn’t be to kill whenever they felt threatened. Or maybe instead of pulling out gun on unarmed men, they should pull out tasers, that way if they are feeling “threatened” they can hurt the individual instead of killing them. I know that with all the tragedies that has happened with cops killing black men, has really made the black community think negatively about the law enforcements and I think we do need to put something in place so that law enforcement can gain our trust back.
