So I guess there's still a some black and white -- even amongst the blue.

A panel convened after two officer-on-officer shootings said police departments must confront both overt and unconscious racial bias among officers to reduce the risk of one officer harming another during "friendly fire." A task force examined police-on-police confrontations around the country, finding 26 killings during the past three decades. The panel also found numerous other officer-on-officer confrontations that did not lead to a fatality.

The review of the confrontations found that "inherent or unconscious racial bias plays a role in shoot/don't-shoot decisions made by officers of all races and ethnicities," the report said. Ten of the officers killed were off duty, including Edwards and Ridley. And nine of the those were minorities. The last white off-duty officer to be killed by an on-duty colleague died in 1982, the task force found.

It's been slow making up the ground lost after last year's award show hijacking, but supporting a music boycott of Arizona with Zack De La Rocha, a funny appearance on The Cleveland Show and a new single on the way, maybe he's turning a corner. Maybe.
