Police have the power to assault without penalty

There is a false equivalence in equating white racism against blacks with black fear or racism against whites, especially police: The black person who doesn’t like white people can call names, maybe even physically assault some individual. But she has virtually no power to express that bigotry with impunity upon multiple victims through public institutions.
