Tarantino: ‘There Is This Institutional Racism That Is Just Bred in Law Enforcement’

[WARNING: Adult language]

Wednesday on the “The Howard Stern Show,” filmmaker Quentin Tarantino declared “institutional racism” was present in law enforcement.

Tarantino said, “For the last year and a half, like a lot of people, I have been sitting at my couch watching television and watching seemingly one sickening incident after another that never seems to stop. Literally unarmed people being shot and killed. You talk to black folks—they will be saying ‘Hey this sh-t didn’t start a year and a half ago.’ But now with iPhones actually capturing this footage and seeing it—that seems pretty undeniable to us laymen.”

He continued, “At some point you have to take a side. This must stop. They must stop killing these people. And there is this institutional racism that is just bred in law enforcement that has happened in the last thirty years. And it needs to stop.  And to be silent is to acquiesce to it.”
