This is a topic that my family's been debating on. They feel black cops stick in black neighborhoods and whites in white, but I feel that usually black police officers are sometimes more tougher on other black people so it wouldn't necessarily make a difference.

No, I don't think black cops should monitor black neighborhoods.
When you said "but I feel that usually black police officers are sometimes more tougher on other black people so it wouldn't necessarily make a difference", that is EXACTLY what I was thinking. Studies have shown that Blacks are just as harsh on each other than any other race. So, this wouldn't make a difference in the slightest.
Besides, the last thing we need to do is bring back a form of segregation. If we have Black cops solely in the "Black neighborhoods", that's the 1950's all over again.
Police brutality is a big issue in the United States. I won't deny that. I also think the police forced is biased against racial minorities. However, this is not the solution to this problem.2
