Black men accounted for 40 percent of the 60 unarmed deaths, by police, this year, even though they make up just 6 percent of the U.S. population.(Washington Post database of fatal police shootings)
sort by best latest
Sounds reasonable to me.
Yes reasonable,so why is it people use(or make up)information like what this Q&A is about to promote hatred of cops?Could it be they're unreasonable?Or is it "Reds Exploiting Blacks" (Google it)
Don't you have to give credit to the multitudes of blacks that are in gangs, and commit crimes. They also seem to be in the eye of the law, not by profiling but being in those criminal like settings. some may be victims but they are exceptions
They are all suckers if they subscribe to BLM, just like the rest, being used by the "reds" to achieve their ends and nothing else. SUCKERS
I totally agree, they are being played.
Blacks have the robbery gene.
JESUS SAID "There is neither Jew nor Greek "IN" Christ Jesus" (Gal3:28) which leaves you guys "demons" aka Anti-Christ!
Excellent I only wish I had read your post before posting my own. The statistics are alarming and prove the black lives movement is a fallacy at best.
Stop using facts, it messes up the comments. lol
lol Ain't that the truth Brad, when dealing with people who believe the lie that truth is relative, then there are no facts or else everyone has their own facts and that is ludicrous...to any realistic observer.

Truth and strong words, but the racist's don't care about the big picture, or cause and effect. Plus most are uneducated; spiritually or otherwise. Their Ozzie and Harriet world is coming to an end, and I am laughing out loud. Listen to them whine.
Ronnie, you know I'm "New Covenant" & didn't know this was in Scripture! I get TIRED of telling ppl GOD REVEALS (aka "leads & guides")!
According to Lev6, until they rectify their actions; they are NOT "IN" Christ!
"Society uses the media..." ?Sorry honey but it's the msm that uses society,manipulates&forms societal opinion,not society manipulating the media.If it was society using the media the media wouldn't be 90% liberal, a societal minority.
I tell TRUTH which is ALWAYS "a hard pill to swallow!"
It's OK cuz as WB said there is "cause & effect" so don't "whine!"
In this life or the life to come!
How can Obama further divide the US by race, while he had a chance to unify them,& still have nearly all the blacks supporting him(& the Democrat party)?The Dems have only hurt blacks with their policies for decades.What is it with them?
You don't bite the hand that feeds you, BO and Dem party. But, the racial tension and riots went up rapidly during his reign. Dems are only interested in power, who vote for them. Blacks don't realize they are making them indentured servants
Sadly it reverts back to our systems. Schools and abundant welfare. That is where we are condemning the Black people. They have grown accustomed to buying the crap on TV, and that further condemns them.
That is why I wrote the ? on Blacks, minorities being indentured servants of the democrat party. Much like Pavlov's dogs, when a democrat is running they salivate.
Brad, I do not feel guilty about slavery, or lynchings or segregation or lack of Civil Rights. Not my generation, not even my father's sin and my grandpa had not a bigoted bone in his body. But now I pay taxes. Money used to enslave today. My bad.
I agree the police need better training and uniformity, but the blacks and other gangs need to be stopped. It is like the high speed police chases here in Ca, there should be a better, safer way. The car and body cams of the police should help.
Eric you say, "I do not think the statistics reveal that the black people are killed because they are black." Then why do you think these "unarmed" black men are killed and at a higher rate than white men?
VVeasey that is really the crux question. What percentage of gangs are blacks? Probably as reliable as the WP but the best we have: https://www.nationalgangcenter.gov/survey-analysis...
That would account for it.
What has gangs to with the cops shooting and killing "unarmed" black men?
If the majority of Blacks (I think that should be capitalized) that cops come into contact with on the streets are gang members and I suspect they are, then you would be a stupid dead cop if you approached that demographic without caution. Stats.
Well said. And not just blacks but anyone in the presence of the law can be killed by the police. They are just not press worthy. People confuse the press focus with the real events. Gangs as you say do make police on edge, now they kill cops.
