The nation’s largest online civil rights organization,, is pressuring the FOX network and corporate advertisers of the television show Cops, to stop airing the 25-year-old reality show.

“Research shows that with such a narrow range of Black characters and personalities in primetime, the negative perceptions and distorted images presented by shows like Cops, create an atmosphere of suspicion and desensitizes and conditions audiences to view police misconduct and harsher punishments as acceptable,” said Executive Director of ColorofChange, Rashad Robinson.

ColorofChange sent out a petition to the media corporation and Cops producers in hopes of persuading them into canceling the show.
