“Racist” Facts White People Daren’t Talk About
Police brutality targeting blacks will not subside until this becomes part of the national conversation
“RACIST” FACT: Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks commit around half of homicides in the United States.
“RACIST” FACT: Blacks commit eight times more crimes against whites than vice-versa.
“RACIST” FACT: Between 1999 and 2011, 2,151 WHITES died as a result of being shot by police compared to 1,130 BLACKS.
“RACIST” FACT: In 2013, black criminals carried out 38% of murders, compared to 31.1% for whites, despite the fact that there are five times more white people in the U.S.
Black people in the United States are more likely to be victims of violent confrontations with police officers than whites because they commit more violent crimes than whites per capita.
Until black political leaders, protest organizers and white liberal media outlets make these facts part of the conversation, one of the primary driving factors behind police brutality will never be addressed.
