Hillary Hits ‘Racist Cops’

“There is something profoundly wrong when African-American men are still far more likely to be stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes and sentenced to longer prison terms than are meted out to their white counterparts,” declared Hillary Clinton at a speech at Columbia University on Wednesday. “There is something wrong when a third of all black men face the prospect of prison during their lifetimes. From Ferguson to Staten Island to Baltimore, the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable. … We have to come to terms with some hard truths about race and justice in America.”

Clinton’s point about unfair police enforcement shouldn’t be summarily dismissed, though she and other Democrats use it to exacerbate racial divisions rather than heal them, to turn the public against police rather than help them do their work better. More to the point, as Mark Alexander wrote in December, “[W]hen 90% of murders in urban centers are ‘people of color’ and 90% of perpetrators are ‘people of color,’ cops of any color are going to be more cautious with ‘people of color.’ This is not ‘racism,’ this is reality, driven by a desire to make it home safely at the end of one’s shift.” Enforcement must be fair and serve the cause of justice. But the black community has a lot of work to do to clean up its own cultural rot.

And Clinton didn’t mention all the white police killed by black thugs, such as NYPD Officer Brian Moore, who was mortally wounded over the weekend. Indeed, we need to “come to terms with some hard truths about race and justice in America.” The trouble is, only one side is interested in doing so, and it’s not Clinton’s.
