Law enforcement is concerned that the popular Waze mobile traffic app by Google, which provides real-time road conditions, can also be used to hunt and harm police. Waze is a combination of GPS navigation and social networking. Fifty million users in 200 countries turn to the free service for warnings about nearby congestion, car accidents, speed traps, traffic cameras, construction zones, potholes, stalled vehicles or unsafe weather conditions. Waze users mark police -- who are generally working in public spaces -- on maps without much distinction other than "visible" or "hidden."


racism Syllabification: rac·ism
Pronunciation: /ˈrāˌsizəm
Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior (italics mine)

Black people rioting is not a statement that blacks are superior to whites (racism), it is anger against those that are perceived as members of the oppressor class. It could be called "race hatred", but that is not the same thing as racism.

There are plenty of comments on the DR, however that certainly do express a belief that there is something "wrong" with black people, as a class, that results in their unequal position in society. That is racism.
