Black Community and Metro Toronto Police

I recently wrote a 2000 word essay on the relationship between the black community and Metro Toronto police.  Don’t worry I’ll give you the short version of my argument.

Most people in North America are aware that black people and police aren’t the best of friends.  In my essay I address some of variables that influence the relationship between these two groups.

Variables such as the media and history of slavery tend to play a tremendous role in creating what I call a “defensive atmosphere”.  It is my opinion that the media doesn’t necessarily flatter black people.  Most of the blacks are covered for crime, at least this seems to be the opinion of black citizens of Toronto.  This in combination with the tragic history of slavery creates tension among the blacks and police.

That’s all i got today folks…its been pretty dry hah!
