I assume in part because being white didn't help Kelly Thomas or Daniel Shaver much.

Well, you know, there's white and then there's white to a cop. Often a crucial difference.

Also because the NYPD aren't particularly renowned for their colorblind policing practices.

I really hate it when people say things like that, because it turns the statement from "Police are especially shitty to Black people" (which is hard to argue with) to "Police are uniquely shitty to Black people" (which is just plain not true). I mean, the only way de Blasio's statement could be true is if he thought every single case ever of a cop killing a White person was completely justifiable. But of course he doesn't "think" about it in those terms, he's just using rhetoric.

Police report that nooses were found in a city park.
City begins hate crimes investigation.
The man who put them there (who is himself Black, FWIW) comes forward and says, "Those aren't nooses, they're exercise gear, and thousands of people have seen them and not thought they were nooses."
Mayor says la la la la I can't hear you, I was right anyway.
Schaaf said officials must “start with the assumption that these are hate crimes.” However, the mayor and Nicholas Williams, the city’s director of parks recreation, also said it didn’t matter whether the ropes were meant to send a racist message.

“Intentions don’t matter when it comes to terrorizing the public,” Schaaf said. “It is incumbent on all of us to know the actual history of racial violence, of terrorism, that a noose represents and that we as a city must remove these terrorizing symbols from the public view.”

“The symbolism of the rope hanging in the tree is malicious regardless of intent. It’s evil, and it symbolizes hatred,” Williams said.
