Black Law Enforcement Supports 49’s Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick

As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we are in full support of 49’s Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

It is our duty as peace officers and members of Blacks in Law Enforcement of America to continue the fight for freedom, justice, and equality for all citizens.

Blacks In Law Enforcement of America believes that Law Enforcements’ purpose is to protect and serve. Not to contain the poor, the economically disadvantaged or to take advantage of those who cannot fight back or have a real voice in the matter at hand.

At any given day a Black Police Officer’s family member could be a victim of the same issues that Mr. Kaepernick is courageously taking a stand against. At any given day without our uniform on, the Black Officer can be a victim or the same situations that Mr. Kaepernick has eloquently stated in several interviews.

As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we recognize that there are four degrees of separation from Black Law Enforcement and the Black community when it comes to “Police Criminality”. We know the victim, we know someone who knows the victim, the victim is a family member, or we are the victims.

Black Law Enforcement Officers should no longer permit ourselves to be relegated to the role of brutal pawns of a system of policing that has terrorized our birth communities for decades.

We are mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, neighbors, and members of the black community. Donning the blue uniform should not change this.

On the contrary, it should sharpen our perception of our responsibilities as Black men and women in a society that are seemingly unresponsive to the needs of Black people.

To this end, we are in full Colin Kaepernick and any other NFL player that uses their status to advance the need for Justice for Black people throughout America.

Black Law Enforcement Opposes FOP’s Endorsement of Trump

Blacks in Law Enforcement of America, USA is not surprised by the National endorsements of one of the Presidential candidates by the National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).

In our opinion and experience, the FOP has never been an organization that operated on behalf of African American Police Officers. This organization in the past has been anti-affirmation as well as opposed the promotion of African Americans in the police department as well as opposed to the very important policy of police officers living in the city they work. As Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we believe that residency is a major factor of accountability and is a core component in “Real Community Policing.”  READ MORE

Do Black Lives Matter to the FOP? Black Members Do Not Actually Exist!

These assimilated brothers and sisters have - over the years - contributed hundreds of thousands - if not millions of dollars - to organizations like the FOP. The same FOP that works tirelessly to retard and abate the recruitment, hiring, training, assignments, and promotions of officers of color. Generally, bargaining agents have no love for its constituency. The driving force of these agents is to line their pockets, improve their assignments and to pretend that they embrace and value diversity.

I invite any of these coopted brothers and sisters to make inquiries of the FOP locally, nationally, and internationally to determine the scope and the depth of the FOP's diversity in positional, executive, programmatic, legislative, and policy-making tiers.  READ MORE
