Black men are seven times more likely to be killed by police than white men. Believe or disbelieve?


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)

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
