Confusion in the US over police treating a black and white boy unequally in a fight

Police officers hold the young black man to the ground.

New Jersey’s governor was shocked, the mayor had to cancel the council meeting due to security concerns, and the two officers’ calls to resign were loud. “We understand that this video disturbed the residents,” said the police, who asked the prosecutor to investigate the matter.

The brawl took place in a mall over the weekend, but it has only drawn attention now that his photos have gone viral. According to the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) civil rights movement, it is sad to see how the two white officers directly view the white teenager as the “victim” and the young black as the perpetrator. “Despite years of talk about training aimed at preventing bias,” the organization said.


The video shows how the two, surrounded by friends and classmates, often talk to each other. According to the black boy, Kye, he defended his younger friend who was being bullied by the white teenager. As the controversy intensifies, the white boy points his finger at the black teenager’s face.
