Yet here you are, brazenly inserting race into something that isn't necessarily race related.

Justice should be blind to skin colour and political bias, but it is not.
(Unless you have mind-reading attainments that you have not disclosed...) You are prejudiciously assuming that what happened occurred because of race, with no evidence for that other than your prejudices, lit. pre-judgements, based on race.
Did you ask the policeman if he did what he did because of race, or because George was resisting arrest? You appear to have pre-judiciously made up your mind due to attachment to Cultural Marxist views.
By doing so, you have been drawn away from the Buddha's teachings on justice by the left and made yourself judge and jury in the process. If you can't see what's wrong with that, I don't know what I can do but to keep redirecting you towards the boundlessness and non-discriminatory nature of the Blessed One's Dhamma.
Thank you for sharing your other Dhamma anecdotes but these appear to have nothing to do with race, and therefore do not substantiate your Cultural Marxist accusations that the policeman was acting as he did due to race.
Thank you for demonstrating to us the prejudicial divisive folly of Cultural Marxism. Since you at least recognise blind justice as a good ideal, maybe strive towards promoting it through your words and deeds. Your prejudicial approach to the situation makes me thankful you are not a judge, because your blindfold is well and truly off.
Let us rejoice in the Blessed One's words...
