According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population. As The Post noted in a new analysis published last week, that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.

U.S. police officers have shot and killed the exact same number of unarmed white people as they have unarmed black people: 50 each. But because the white population is approximately five times larger than the black population, that means unarmed black Americans were five times as likely as unarmed white Americans to be shot and killed by a police officer.

Accept statistics don't take into account individual circumstances.

Some may argue that these statistics are evidence of racist treatment toward blacks, since whites consist of 62 percent of the population and blacks make up 13 percent of the population. But as Mac Donald writes in The Wall Street Journal, 2009 statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics reveal that blacks were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country, despite only comprising roughly 15 percent of the population in these counties.

What exactly is everyone's point here? One at a time, state your case.

My point is that if a police shooting happens that it's not inherently racist, nor is it inherently an innocent person. The cases where these things happen are few and far inbetween.

I laughed because I asked you a question then you highlighted the end of your quote to try and push an agenda.

No agenda. Just putting some numbers out there to answer your question.

My only point is that the media circus around all of this is just as intentionally inflammatory as the coverage of a pretty white girl who gets kidnapped. So taking news stories or their prevalence at face value is just as dumb. Maybe the problem really is as bad as some say, maybe it's not quite as bad, or maybe it's all just bull****.
