    When did the last race riot caused by a black police officer shooting/beating/abusing a white suspect take place in the U.S.?

    This is not a question intended to bait anyone. I ask out of curiosity.

    Someone will get you an answer. I think it was Rodney King.

    You're confused. Rolf asked about the last race riot caused by a black officer shooting/beating/abusing a white suspect.

    Looting and rioting are lawless acts, and benefit no one. One who participates in such acts loses any moral high ground they may have held. They should be punished as prescribed by law. Let's be clear about that.

    Still, the anger in large segments of the African American community is understandable. Once again, we see a rogue police force, and one that does not reflect the ethnic composition of the community. We cannot ignore the history of racial oppression in American history (blacks, Indians, Chinese, Irish, on and on). Caucasians have been at the forefront of this oppression, and it is disingenuous to use the infrequency of the situation you describe to imply that whites are somehow superior and do not instigate race riots. This may not be what you intend, but your question gives that impression.

    When was the last time that there was an abundance of black officers shooting and killing white suspects?

    I can't remember the study, but it was done a few years ago where it showed a propensity in simulation for people to shoot suspected black criminals more often than they do white.

    I don't know that your question is a fair one because there just hasn't been a rash of black officers killing unarmed white suspects the way that there has been white officers killing unarmed black suspects.

    The answer again is Jesus Christ and sharing the Gospel. When you've got folks in positions of power whose attitudes aren't dissimilar from the attitudes on here because of politics, you want people who see people as people. Who love their neighbors as themselves.

    You get more people like that by Christians sharing the Gospel and leading folks to Christ.

    There's a racial prejudice, that according to the numbers, is against black suspects and ends up getting them shot and killed far more than it does white suspects.

    First we need to see the actual stats.
    Second - does (or would) the media give the same attention to a black cop shoots non-white suspect?

    I noticed you use the word "criminals" instead of "suspect" Hmmmmmm

    If white suspects were involved in the same activities and behaved in the same way as black suspects, then you would see more white suspects shot.

    Obviously white people commit crimes, but blacks commit more violent crimes by far. It's this culture in the black community that brings trouble down on themselves.

    "A 2012 study by the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention revealed that in 2010 black youths committed six times more murders, three times more rapes, 10 times more robberies and three times more assaults than did their white counterparts." - http://americanfreepress.net/?p=14864

    You reply is totally off the OP topic.

    When did any race riot come about because of the actions of a black police officer against a white suspect. I doubt there have been any.

    I doubt there have been any as well. The reasons for that are because, as a whole, white people do not act as violently and as entitled as black people.

    Yes, I can find many instances of white people being enslaved and treated poorly.

    Some of the very first slave owners were black people owning black slaves.

    Show us some links. I am not saying you are wrong, but it would be nice to read about them.

    There is no question there was indentured servants.

    However, whites have suffered nothing like blacks did after the Civil War in reconstruction and under the Jim Crow laws.

    The separate but equal laws were never equal but certainly were separate.

    I take it that you have no links to support your contention.

    No you wouldn't. That's why folks are complaining. Time and time again you see white suspects/criminals or whatever yall want to call them in the same situations and they don't get shot. The statistics are out there so look them up if you want the truth. But Blacks are disproportionately shot more by police than Whites in like situations in just about every major city, when because of sheer lack of numbers, they aren't committing anywhere near the majority of the crimes.

    Another statistical lie. The latest numbers I see are from 2011, but I would imagine that ain't much trended differently from what the FBI statistics show.

    http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/table-43

    Whites and Blacks are just about neck and neck when it comes to manslaughter and murder.

    Forcible rape- Whites 65%, Blacks 33%
    Robbery-Whites 43%, Blacks 56%
    Aggravated assault 63.9 to 33.6
    Burglary 66.7 to 31.7
    Larceny-theft 68.6 to 28.8
    Motor vehicle theft 64.0 to 33.9
    Arson 72.3 to 25.7
    Violent crime2 59.4 to 38.3
    Property crime 68.1 29.5
    Other assaults 65.7 31.9
    Forgery and counterfeiting 65.5 32.9
    Fraud 66.5 31.8
    Embezzlement 65.5 32.4
    Stolen property; buying, receiving, possessing 66.1 32.3
    Vandalism 72.8 24.7
    Weapons; carrying, possessing, etc. 58.1 40.3
    Prostitution and commercialized vice 53.4 43.6
    Sex offenses (except forcible rape and prostitution) 72.6 24.9
    Drug abuse violations 66.9 31.7
    Gambling 29.8 66.9
    Offenses against the family and children 65.0 32.2
    Driving under the influence 85.3 12.1
    Liquor laws 82.0 13.5
    Drunkenness 81.9 15.5
    Disorderly conduct 63.0 34.4




    Apparently the numbers show else wise. The same things are going on in the "White Communities" but the white suspects aren't getting shot and killed. at the rate of the black suspects.

    It's right up there with why the arrest and sentences for crack cocaine were always so much higher and the sentencing so much stiffer than for powdered cocaine.

    That's youths. That isn't accounting for everyone. According to the FBI and DOJ, the only category of violent crimes in which Blacks outnumber Whites is murder and robbery and for murder, there isn't that big of a difference.

    That would be that racial prejudice rearing its head again. You probably think that because the crimes of Whites isn't highlighted in the media the way the crimes of Blacks is.

    That tends to lend credence to why so many white people think that blacks are more violent and more criminally natured than are white people.

    On another board someone did a study of how black suspects and white suspects are presented by the media:

    You've got the same wrong mentality about Blacks that a lot of non-black folks have adopted. Yet some of you wonder why they cry race.

    By the numbers, whites tend to commit many more violent crimes. They just aren't getting shot and killed for committing them.

    And while you might hear about some black youth killing an old white person because it gets blown up in the news, there are stories from coast to coast everyday about white individuals killing family members or people they know. It just doesn't get the same press.

    Black against white is much more sensational and gets ratings.

    It continues to be a shame that so many in the Body of Christ can look at someone's skin color and think and say some of the things that I have read on this board and heard in evangelical circles, but then want to portray yourselves as the people of God.
