Freedom 515 - Massachusetts

Public·75 members

I do apologize in advance for the below info. All the "noise" about racism and defunding the Police has made me research numbers for myself. Here are some hard facts.

Looking at just the black and white population in the US (2019 source statista.com) blacks comprise 15% and whites 85%.

In 2019 of these two groups arrested for VIOLENT crimes including murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault blacks comprise 38.5% and whites 61.5% (source Government Office of justice services https://www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/crime/ucr.asp?table_in=2)


Finally the number of black and white people shot to death by the police in the United States in 2019 black 38.8% and white 61.2%. (source Statista.com)


What these numbers tell me is that there is a direct correlation in number of people arrested by Police and people shot to death by Police. I do not see any racism with these numbers. Whites are shot to death in the same rate as blacks in relation to the arrests.


Anyone shot to death is a tradegy but why is the media and BLM pressing racism?
