Without doubt - by any statistical measure or quality of life category - blacks suffer more than whites. And it's also worth remembering that white are five times the population than blacks. That means, blacks are 2 ½ times more likely to be shot by police when adjusting for their proportion of the population. Seeing as there are two separate white societies in America, we should ask ourselves what kind of whites get shot?  

One is the privileged whites. The monied whites. The college-educated whites. The political and business and media class whites. Those connected to centers of influence and power.

Then there are the underprivileged whites. The poor whites. The working whites. The truckers and roofers. These whites are paid little mind by the privileged whites, who control the airwaves and the printing presses. In these corners of America, they too fear the police. They too are told to "comply."......

 

And the treatment is different. Rich guys can afford lawyers; poor guys get public defenders. Cops know that. When looked at this way, the numbers start to even out.

Are we to believe that every police shooting of a white person is legitimate? Is this an oversight by the media, or does the privileged white class think somehow working class whites deserve it since race is not a factor and they "should know better?" Maybe white working class America has something in common with black America.......

 

As far as police reform goes, the Black Lives Matter movement might find a natural ally in the trailer parks, apartment blocks and the blue-collar cul-de-sacs across the country. The only thing needed from these corners of white America is leadership.

 

Much more at link.

 

We had those white leaders before, they were murdered. So were the Black leaders that started to pull people together. 

 


Most blacks shot by police are committing violent crimes or attempting to kill the policeman.  There are exceptions that we hear about on the news where a policeman does violate someone's rights and then we also have more violence. In addition, when a court case is heard and the policeman is vindicated by a jury (like in St. Louis), blacks, BLM, Antifa, thugs bussed in from other cities riot and cause more violence.  Race is a factor since police as well as FBI statistic show that blacks commit more violent crimes on a percentage basis than whites.

 

Well, here is a list of 100 unarmed black deaths by police in 2015.  How many is "a few"?  (Fake news again, I am afraid)
