We were told that the long-running TV show COPS was being cancelled following the wave of protests after George Floyd was killed. But now what’s really happening feels like we might have been the target of a pretty messed up joke.
By spreading positive misperceptions about police, analysis reveals that police shows distort the truth.
It’s insulting to think that this show was “cancelled” just long enough to appease us. That tells us what needs to happen now.
Anti-Black violence isn’t entertainment! These sorts of television shows need to be turned off and cancelled for real!
They don’t deserve to be on in our barbershops, living rooms, or anywhere else for that matter. It’s time to watch something that doesn’t treat Black lives like a game.
