Liberals' latest favorite signal phraseology is "the talk," as in, "every black parent must have the talk with their children regarding interactions with the police." As a son of white second generation immigrant parents, I too heard the talk. Father told me when he was young, police patrolling at the Broadway Market would chase him and his buddies off if they were seen loitering in the market with no apparent reason to be there. The cops' use of physical encouragement for the boys to not be seen hanging around was not uncommon and indeed likely, if the youngsters were unwisely insolent. But rather than demonizing the police, my father quickly added, "We knew better than go home and tell our parents what the cops had done, because we would have gotten worse from our fathers."
