Willie Lynch Syndrome
What is it about a blackman that you are stereotyped as a criminal by law enforcement? This is not being done by just white police officers but black ones as well. I think you have to look at the training of police officers in general. I think that this is the psychological effect of slavery. Black men were placed as overseer’s of slaves and were harder on the slaves than the white men at times. And when Black’s were allowed to become police officers, they were out helping to enforce Jim Crow Laws. When blackmen and women were being brutally attacked by white officers you had black officers standing, watching, too scared to say something and you had some black officers who joined in not just trying to impress the white officers, but because they hated themselves so much that they hated anyone who looked like them. We call this the Willie Lynch Syndrome.
