Ah, fair enough. What would be an appropriate response to the question though? If I was a politican (gods forbid), maybe I'd say something like:

I don't know what I would do, because I have not experienced the specific forms of oppression and subjugation that racialized people encounter on a daily basis. However, when elected, I will do everything in my power to make police encounters safer for Black people.

That's... a lot more careful but also purposefully not answering the question. I just don't think there's any way to legitimately answer the question without coming across as victim blamey.
