A New York City police union called the Sergeants Benevolent Association is using a new video to troll its workers into believing that “racism” against police officers (a job) is even more prevalent than racism against black and non-black people of color (an identity).

“The average person doesn’t see those things that make me human. They don’t even label me based on being African American, Latino, Asian, Caucasian, and so on. They tend to see an even broader stereotype through an even more racist lens. When they look at me, they see blue.” “Blue” being a reference to the costumes they take on and off. Poor them.

The video also includes an eye-roll worthy MLK jr. quote to further justify their offensive false equivalency:
