On Friday night, the Baltimore police Department released the mugshots of the six police officers charged in the homicide of Freddie Gray
The officers, who have all been released on bond, were previously identified as Lt. Brian Rice, Officer Garrett Miller, Sgt. Alicia White, Officer William Porter, Officer Edward Nero, and Officer Caesar Goodson.
That half of the officers are black appears to dispel the notion that the death of Gray was racially motivated, but the debate raged on social media:
Syndicated columnist and Breitbart News editor-at-large Ben Shapiro tweeted:
White racism sure is becoming diverse https://t.co/T5e3r3K5Rg

Time to offer a different narrative:
@RBPundit @VRWCTexan police brutality. It covers so much.

But the left wasn’t ready to let the “racist” label loose. Joan Walsh, editor for the far-left Salon, tweeted:
That 3 of 6 are black shows that black leadership doesn’t protect wrongdoers like white leaders too often do. @JuddLegum @jtlarsen
— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) May 2, 2015
And everyone pounced on that:
Well that didn’t take long. @joanwalsh seems to believe black police officers can’t think for themselves. https://t.co/Ov8VewKt9E

Still, Walsh had her supporters. Especially notable was this one:
The mugshots of the 6 officers tell a complex tale of white supremacy.

Of course black people can be racist. Black people can even be racist against black people. (Did that just blow your mind? It shouldn't.)

@deray I so did not expect half of them to be black.

The #Baltimore mayor, police commissioner, DA & 3 of the 6 cops are black. But it was white supremacy/racism ultimately killed #FreddieGray
— Alyssa Lafage (@AlyssaLafage) May 2, 2015
clearly the black #Baltimore police officers that were arrested suffer from some sort of internalized white supremacy

Saddest part about white supremacy is that they've made Africans & Asians believe everything about their cultures is wrong
— African Meninist (@Blick_Oyinbo) May 2, 2015
And perhaps the most delusional tweet of them all.
This. I'd further argue that policing itself *IS* a form of white supremacy. It is in and of itself a racist SYSTEM. https://t.co/lsNjMSsVfy
