Responding to American Stereotypes #9 – Racism and the Police

Is America full of racists? Are the police more racist in the US than other countries? I tackle the topic in this response to American Stereotypes.

I went on Facebook, an internet forum, and a blogging platform and asked various non-Americans about the American stereotypes and rumors they’ve heard or shared. I wanted to collect as much as I could and respond to them in a video. I give my own opinions at first, and then do a little research for factual information at the bottom of the video — that is, if facts are needed.

In this video I respond to several statements from a single person:

“They are very racists too, Ferguson is a great example and American cops kill Black people on a weekly basis! Not to mention Blacks were once segregated in ‘the land of the free.'”

I will continue doing these as one of my American-based features in the future if I get more comments! If you’d like to contribute more stereotypes, feel free to leave a comment in this article or in the video’s comments section. It would be best if you’re not from the United States of America when adding stereotypes. And don’t forget to share this with your non-American friends so they can add some stereotypes as well!
