Racism: Real or Exaggerated?
March 24, 2021
I was recently asked to fill out a law enforcement survey on hate crimes from a television broadcaster. I filled out their survey a short time after having gone through Nebraska’s mandated anti-bias and racism training that all law enforcement officers are required to take every year.
During these trainings, I was basically told that as a white law enforcement officer, I am automatically racist and in all cases biased. I hate to break it to everyone, but we are all biased and I have even been the victim of reverse racism on several occasions. Do I sit around and cry about it? No.

This commentary by Sheriff Frerichs is sad. No, it doesn’t automatically make him a racist, but it shows just how small his world view is. Has he ever left Western Nebraska? Has he ever really interacted with people with a different background than his? If he has, it certainly doesn’t show in this piece.

Well said, sir, I agree 100%!
