All valid points. The problem, for me, is that very little of the above is enacted on the ground. It's verging on naval-gazing theorising; an idealistic vision of the way things should be, not as they actually are. Surface impressions are also applicable and important; whether they contain any long lasting validity to them is debatable. I don't really see any of the above nuance in even religious Sikhs. The priority seems to be their own little sect within the larger Panth itself than anything approaching an ambitious vision for the whole.
Another important point is where we fit in amongst other religions and communities, and how we navigate and prioritize our own self interests so that our people flourish and prosper in the sense of us not being crowded out, religiously speaking, of existence. There's a need to "hold frame" when surrounded by larger and longer established faiths.
Black concerns are valid.
If there is going to be an honest conversation regarding black life regarding specifically police brutality then yes.
However, you are talking about black life then it is a bigger conversation.
There are a lot of black voices who live in these neighbourhoods that are asking questions on black on black murders.
The reality is the black murder rate is very high and they are killing each other,far more than cops killing blacks.
If a cop kills a black perpertrator who has no choice but to defend themselves and kill that assailant (maybe because the black guy is a drug dealer and is armed ), then it is going to be seen as a racist killer and then riots will ensue.
What results is that cops don't bother entering those neighbourhoods. Those neighbourhoods go downhill very fast.
That is the elephant in the room.
There are blacks that are asking these questions, we only hear from the race hustlers on the media because it suits an agenda.
I don't know where you're going with this, but we can also say most kharkhus killed during the Khalistani lehar were killed by other Sikhs (in the police). Does this mean Sikhs are some violent criminal group or the grievances of the kharkus are invalid?
I don't why you feel like you have to be some mouth-piece defending whites against black grievances - it's not like your own people don't have enough of their own battles to contend with???
You sound like you'd be one of those serfs whites wheel out to support their own agenda, when they are challenged - all for a few rupees.
Lack of economic opportunity, systemic racism, social policies (and more) could all contribute to why the murder rate amongst blacks is higher in the US. Using the stats to try and deflect from black concerns is just plain obfuscation in my opinion.
