FBI Director Comey Delivers Candid Speech about Racial Biases in Law Enforcement

FBI Director James B. Comey delivered a candid speech Thursday about the strained relationship between police and African Americans, saying officers who work in areas with high black crime often develop a racial bias, the New York Times reports. 

Comey said the speech was intended to create a healthy dialogue that didn’t exist after the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

It was the most extensive address about race ever give by an FBI director, the Times wrote.

“All of us in law enforcement must be honest enough to acknowledge that much of our history is not pretty,” he said. “At many points in American history, law enforcement enforced the status quo, a status quo that was often brutally unfair to disfavored groups.”

Comey cited research that suggests unconscious racial biases.

“Although the research may be unsettling, what we do next is what matters most,” Mr. Comey said.
