The "Black Lives Matter" Movement Is Right
The folks in the Black Lives Matter movement are upset, because they claim that Blacks are the victim of police violence more than any other race or ethnicity (especially Whites). Meanwhile, police apologists have claimed this is not true.
Well, a study has been done by the Center of Policing Equity, and it turns out that the Black Lives Matter movement is right. Blacks are the recipient of police violence more than any other groups. Note that the rate of violence toward Blacks by police (per 100,000 residents) is 273. That's nearly four times the rate of Whites.
It's time for Whites to stop whining and trying to deny the truth. It's time they joined Blacks in demanding this inequity be stopped.
