One of the biggest problems in America is that its legal system is mostly white. This includes police, lawyers, and judges. The police force is a prime example. Same thing has happened in Britain. They’ve tried for 20 years to get more blacks and mixed-race people as police and it just hasn’t worked. I think this happens because those who hire are prejudiced, but I also think that the black population doesn’t want its children to be policemen.
Let’s turn to science fiction for a solution. In other words, let’s think outside the box. Let’s imagine that we’re absolutely set on making our police force mixed race. If we could do this, then George Floyds should be a thing of the past. Here goes.
The legislature buys up houses in a desolate community, repairs them, puts in lovely greenery, and sells them – cheap – to people of mixed races who are willing to live in a mixed race community. Furthermore, the buyers are told that their children, in addition to playing together, will get special training on being police, lawyers, and judges. The buyers are carefully chosen to be black, brown, white, and mixed race. They have children. From an early age, the children are in pre-school, with teachers of all races. They play together. And they actually get legal training.
But even more importantly, they get training on how to act peacefully in order to tone down difficult situations. They become familiarized with weapons but are told never to use them against human beings unless their own lives, or the lives of others, are clearly in danger. They play games which underscore what they have learned so that it all becomes second nature to them. And when they graduate from high school, they are given summer jobs with the police, in law offices, and with judges.
Finally comes the day that their education is over, and they gain employment: as cops. A few go to law school, and they become lawyers. A few become judges.
How do you think these people will perform in the legal system? I think that they will uphold the system as we brag it should be. Fairly. Without bias. Without brutality. To them, that is the norm. And the society will hire them gratefully, because they will uphold the law the way it should be upheld.
Personally, I think this is how we should educate our children. All across the land, we should have mixed race communities and certainly mixed race primary schools, grammar schools, high schools, colleges. We should swear an oath that our children will never need to experience a George Floyd death, and the unfairness and inequality that we have today shall be no more.
