Shouldn't think so - It's more likely that police brutality is caused by racism.
Yes. One week after the grand jury decision in the Michael Brown case, President Obama has finally given his first major policy resp once to the protests from Ferguson and beyond over racial profiling and police brutality. At a meeting with activists and officials from all around the country (and probably world), Obama unveiled a process go try to address what he called "simmering to dust".
On the policy front, Obama announced a new task force to come up with concrete steps for building public trust in police forces nationwide. Obama announced a 263 million dollar (can't find the dollar symbol) community policies g initiative, which includes 75 million (still cant find the dollar symbol) for body cameras.
I think it would be more accurate to say that police brutality is a symptom of racism, not the cause. Though it certainly doesn't help the situation. The roots of racism go back much, much further, and it's going to take an active effort from everyone to get away from it.
