    Do YOU believe that in the United States, there is an escalating war against Black men by the

    police? What makes Black men so threatening in the mindsets of many police officers?

    To answer this question properly, you would have to know the statistics of crime incidents, including things from traffic stops and other stops of citizens by police. Then the number of detained, taken into custody, and arrested. The race and ethnicity of those people, the race and ethnicity of the police involved, and their geographic locations.

    Basically what is the total number of incidents, and the total number of injuries, shootings and deaths by the police, by the persons detained, and arrested.

    As well, as the victims of those arrested, and how were they injured or died.

    Basically, don't judge the race war with a handful of people across the nation. We do know that about a third of the prisoners in US jails and prisons are black. What is the percentage of them that were innocent.

    This is just a factual investigation of the facts.
    Do this before we make any conclusions about the mindsets of the police. The data may contain much of their mindset.

    That doesn't rule out that many police departments need better training.

      I also believe it shouldn't be just the numbers, but the ratio of these ethnicities in terms of crime and punishment. I personally think it also has to do with the fact that more videos are coming out showing police brutality and racism.

    No. Police shooting rates are similar across the nation, more whites get killed than blacks by police.
    Blacks see police as a threat in part because they have more interactions with police.
    That's not racism, per se, but because children born to illegitimate mothers are 3x more likely to get arrested, get held back, become addicts and 75% of black kids are illegitimate versus 25% for whites. When your community has three times as much crime, you get three times as many police encounters.
    The same issue is seen in the poor rural areas dominated by whites, but that doesn't hit the news the way "black man shot by cops, don't talk about circumstances like him threatening people, just play over and over again because RATINGS!"

    Black leaders are also perpetrating the siege mentality to prevent assimilation into broader culture. Keep the tribe afraid, and they'll follow you for safety and you maintain power.

    Black Lives Matter seizes the "we're under attack" narrative to demand creation of police free enclaves, no-go zones for only their people akin to the Muslim dominated enclaves in the EU. Then they gain total control over the area, to extort, rob and maim as they choose.

    They are racist, calling for segregation - though saying only black cops and teachers should be in the black community opens up high status and high power jobs to them.
