You state -
Anyone who has their eyes open knows the police force is riddled with corruption. You don't need me to give you examples
I agree itís a broken model needing vast immediate changes.
Why should the responsibility for change be on those who have been discriminated against? They didn't create this situation
It shouldnít be just down to them, I never suggested it was, it is societies problem for sure BUT I totally disagree that they have no obligation to help that change happening and with all due haste and becoming part of the police organisation and promoting change from within IMO is essential to success.
What is the alternative?
You ask"using the same logic you'd suggest we all convert to Islam in order to stamp out religious extremism. That would be ridiculous. But tell me the difference?
Well thatís absolutely categorically NOT the same logic IMO
Your statement reads that all of Islam must be extremists........ I wouldnít want to convert anyone from being followers of Islam as for the few extremists I would want to reform them from being extremists for certain!,
Unless of course you are suggesting ALL police are extreme racists?
Racism in endemic within the police, how specifically can that be changed?
My suggestion which you disagree with is integration and education .
It seems to have worked within sport, specifically football, you may or may not remember the days of racism by players on the pitch with players such as Laurie Cunningham etc.
Seems to me the more BAME players that have become professionals the more rapid and dramatic positive effect on football by virtually eliminating on pitch racism,.
It does surprise and concern me you canít see how change from within is the strongest force for change.
