I agree with you. I think your condition goes along with being a police apologist, aficionado of all power, and colorblind.

It must be wonderful to be not just a police apologist, but an aficionado of all power, ignoring its abuses... and to be colorblind, to boot!

Jarvis, what makes John Crawford an "unsavory type"? Are you superior to him?

I believe there is such a thing as "black on black" racism, as you call it, rooted in white supremacy. So, yes, one does not have to be white to be trigger-happy with the concept of "unsavory types".
It's only lethal when it moves from concept to weapon.

"Unsavory types" just happen to be people of color.
That's an easy connection that is comfortable for many in our society, but when you take, for example, the NYC stop and frisk practice, which saw crime rates decrease after suspension, it factually flies in the face of people's comfort with the overpolicing and resulting overimprisonment of men of color, especially African Americans.
To you Eric Garner was an "unsavory type" but to his family he was hubby and daddy who was suffocated, symbolically, by some of the highest unemployment rates in the country.

We are both right, Jarvis. You could not survive without the underpaid people in your life who make it easy for you and I am psychic!

Jarvis, you are once again misguided. You could not survive without the people you currently pay near-slave wages.
