Are all cops b-st-rds?

If so, why?

For a year, students at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls have had the opportunity to find out.

As reported by Campus Reform, the school’s Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging office’s “Education & Resources for Allies” webpage previously promoted an article titled “A Guide to Allyship: Black Lives Matter & Why ‘All Cops are B-st-rds.’”

The claim that individual cops can be good is rooted in white supremacist mythology that suggests racism is an individual act committed by anybody.

Forget individuality:

Policing is not a question of individualism. It is not as if a random individual gets a gun, a badge, a police car, and a blue uniform.

It’s a case of systemic racism:

The police are a highly organized institution with systemic power. In order to understand any institution, it is important you start with the history of that institution…
