To recap "Black Identity Extremism" was never really a thing, just a political ploy to use the media to fuel conservative outrage.
That's not respect for our nation's law enforcement, it is using them as political pawns.
@ted Seems like a common trend these days:
"[X] was never really a thing, just a [sensational] ploy [by] the media to fuel [Y] outrage/fear [and in doing so generate ad revenue]."
I actually don't like being such a cynical person, but I'm literally to the point these days of taking everything anyone says or does, and running a profit motive analysis on it. I feel like we are all being manipulated and turned on each other in the short-sighted effort to line the pockets of a few moguls.
