There's really no good way to understand understand how [some] American [police] handle black citizens other than racism. There's even less of a way to get around how the justice system treats these events other than racism. There are two justice systems in America. Black people who may or may not be guilty of some crime can be killed by police and nothing comes of it. White gun nuts engaged in open carry while drunk on the other hand? Pretty much nothing. He loses his gun for an afternoon (because drunk) and that's it. No citation, no wrestling, tazering, pepper spraying, and definitely no shooting because white.
