Can you provide some data to add context for that claim, please?

Just give me the data to look at and skip the preambles, please. No offense, I just want the data to look at myself.


The Fryer paper that has gotten the most attention is here (NBER makes its papers available without paywall)
https://www.nber.org/papers/w22399

The most surprising result is that police do not shoot black people at a greater rate (controlling for intervening factors such as the seriousness of the crime involved) than white people. Fryer's interpretation was the same as what the mafia says when you ask them why they don't usually kill "civilians": "it draws too much heat." The likelihood of getting knocked down, beaten or otherwise mistreated by the police is, by contrast, significantly higher if you are black.

There is a good survey of evidence about disparities in treatment by race from the American Sociological Association:
https://www.asanet.org/sites/default/fi ... eCrime.pdf

See especially the part starting at page 10.

But for evil, I referenced not statistics on evil acts, but just some cases we have learned about due to videotaping, etc.



The following user would like to thank Harry Marks for this post:

Killings vs arrests of suspects (violent crime sus) is the area we should be seeing the absolute most bias if indeed it is true police are killing african americans.


I don't know.. ppl seem to move the data around to help move goal posts.


But I can't argue that systemic racism is some sort of myth. I won't argue against that.

Who was George Floyd? Christianity Today has an answer.

Derek Chauvin did not care.

Top NYC Health Official Says “Racism” Will be to Blame for Spike in COVID, Not Thousands of Demonstrators Gathering in Close Proximity
Mark D. Levine, the Chair of the New York City council health committee, tweeted, “Let’s be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protesters. Blame racism.”
infowars.com/top-nyc-health-official-sa ... proximity/

The leftist Democratic party in America is sooo morally bankrupt. It has nothing to run on, nothing. It offers no hope. It can only survive if it promotes racial division.

Image

That's Medaria Arradondo, the current chief of police in Minneapolis. So, under him, the knee on the neck is standard operating procedure. The white cop was following a black man's guidelines when George Floyd died. Is Arradondo being held accountable?

Leftist "concern" about racism is fake, and reasonable people no longer buy the myth. Institutional racism is gone from America. We've had a civil war to end slavery, the national guard enforcing integration, more than a half century of affirmative action, hiring practices that favor minorities, school admissions policies that favor minorities, zero tolerance guidelines to address workplace discrimination, Obama as president for 8 years with his two black attorneys general, hate crimes legislation, quota legislation, and on and on and on. Institutional racism is so rare now that leftists have to seek out individual acts of hatred to keep the bugaboo going. The last pocket of racism that needs to be burned out of American society is the Democratic Party. It was the party of slavery at the time of the civil war. They lost, so they immediately went to work setting up a plantation system in the federal government. And now they think they own blacks. Just ask Joe Biden. He says you ain't black if you vote for Trump.

A film that's coming out on June 19. Made by a black man. The 3 short trailers play one after another:

Uncle Tom

White liberals think blacks can't figure out how to get I.D.s
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrBxZGWCdgs

Leftists jumped the shark with their recent use of racism to justify murder, mayhem and rioting. Atty General Barr said that rioters will be prosecuted as domestic terrorists. There's nothing racist in that and people know it. As soon as he made the statement, the Hollywood crowd stopped contributing bail money to the rioters. All of that Facebook pledging stopped within an hour. The celebrities understood that they might be charged with aiding terrorists. I hope that some of YOU leftists contributed. If you're on the electronic record sending ten bucks to the bail fund, then you may have aided terrorists. I hope you're able to keep us updated on your racist fantasies from Guantanamo.

Here's another graphic. Instagram banned it for being hate speech. The leftist news media is mighty selective in what it reports.

Instagram also shut down Candace Owens' account:

Candace Owens: "I DO NOT support George Floyd!"

What's happening is that all of you leftists are being initiated into a cult. Here are some pics of the initiation rituals:

Tucker Carlson reporting on the rise of the Leftist cult in America.

The internet is censoring him very heavily right now (can't allow the truth to get out), so this video may or may not be up for long.

Below is a dynamite video that touches on how young people have been indoctrinated into the cult. This video is on a free speech site:

Undercover Investigation - Minneapolis Riot Was Preplanned
https://banned.video/watch?id=5ede612d3df0b000240aa178

The purpose of the moment for the cult is to get rid of local police and replace them with a national police force (Gestapo). Here's an article from 3 years ago that talks about that. Excellent piece.

George Soros Dumps His Fortune into War on America, Humanity
thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/27 ... a-humanity

Cults always drive a wedge between victims and their families. From the Black Lives Matter "What we Believe" page:

"...We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and 'villages' that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable...."

hideoutnow.com/2020/06/black-lives-matt ... -page.html

Michelle Obama says the current anger among the cult members is justified. Yesterday she told the followers to never let anybody tell them they're TOO angry. So she's endorsing angry acts like this:

Defense Attorney Shoots Truck Driver in Head During Colorado Street Protest
thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/crazy-geor ... est-video/

This guy is a cult member:

Actor Tom Arnold Calls For Armed Insurrection Against Trump Supporters
thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/actor-tom- ... upporters/

I supported Trump because he wasn't Clinton, and I support him now because he's not Biden. So Tom Arnold's calling on children to gun me down. The leftist cult is being driven by wealthy outside powers, but at ground level are these hysterics driven by Trump Derangement Syndrome. They're dangerous.

What else? Oh, the struggle sessions...

The Chinese Communists staged incidents like the kneeling and groveling pictured above. They were called "struggle sessions." They would force people to confess their crimes against the state and then either reeducate or execute them. That's what America's seeing now:

Struggle session
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Struggle_session

For all of the trashing that some of you do to religions, it seems you'd squawk about being absorbed into a cult.

The Seattle Times did a good job uncovering fake news at Fox.

https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-ne ... mous-zone/

On their website, Fox ran some pictures of things that never happened, by splicing in convenient (to their hysteria) messaging. They have apologized. Unlike some, they have the decency to apologize when they get caught.

Looks like KindaSkolarly may have a lucrative career ahead.
