21. Exactly, Jamaal Bowman is much more connected with the base

than Obama currently is. 'Reform the police' is weak sauce that the cops just laugh at.





Personally I prefer 'Remake the police' or 'Reimagine the police' because that is what needs to be done.

But make no mistake, as Bowman stated, this is not about some slogan but allowing us to be controlled by RW framing, instead of fighting back. Kaepernick kneeled silently and respectfully yet was demonized because White America pedestalizes the police and views blacks and browns as 'ungrateful'. That's the core problem and until that is addressed nothing will change.
