I am a white woman with a lot of white friends and famly who have committed crimes that have gone unpunished.

An air traffic controller with a coke addiction, an sales exec at Oracle who kept a kilo of pot in his bedroom closet that his nieces and nephews were able to help themselves to back in the mid-90s when it wasn't legal anywhere. A board certified surgeon who has performed surgery after having had a drink, a now deceased house wife who choked on her own vomit after too much partying, a fire chief who molested his daughter.

The list of crimes white poeple commit and for which they never have to fear being caught, let alone punished is, if you are honest, astonishing.

I know at least a hundred white people who have committed crimes like this, and they are seen as "law abiding" depsite the fact that they are not.

So yeah, don't bother with George Floyd's rap sheet, b/c I am about to start naming names among the white people I know who seem to think that if you snort coke while not black, it is not a crime.

That if you are white and traveled to Mexico to get drugs to sell to cover the difference in what you could make selling your sperm and the funds you needed to pay your tuition and rent while in medical school, it was not a crime, and the list goes on and on and on.

African-Americans don't commit more crimes; they get prosecuted for more crimes.
