Okay, so this combatting to all of the brave people speaking out after the BLATANT act of racism in Ferguson is really bothering me.
Why is anyone questioning a voice speaking out against a nastiness like racism? If you’re combatting any kind of negative reaction to the killing of Mike Brown it may not necessarily make you racist, but you’re at least perpetuating the idea of racial bias/profiling in america. And it’s bullshit. If you use common sense and realize that, based on demographics, there are statistically more white criminals based on the fact that white people make up 72 percent of the population. However, the place where things seem a bit fishy is when the statistic is presented that 312 out of the approximate 400 people (AKA AMERICANS AKA THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE US) killed in “justified” police brutality are black men.
Lets blow that stat up into a bigger number. There are 44.5 million African Americans in the US, lets say half of them are males. Now we can apply the initial statistic. Applying that even loosely to the African Male population crunches out to like 1 in 800 black men being gunned down. When we’re talking about the whole country that is alottttt of people
AND WE’RE BACK
What need be understood in the midst of all these numbers is most criminals, no matter their skin color, are being arrested at a pretty steady, equal rate. However, the fact that black men alone make up almost 60 percent of fatalities, and with non white persons, probably 75 - 80 percent
WE ARE FACING A PROBLEM
THE LAW HAS A KILLING RATIO
MAJORITY OF THE MINORITIES
MINORITY OF THE MAJORITY
PROFILING IS NOT AN OPTION WHEN WE’RE TALKING ABOUT SOMEONE’S LIFE.
I feel better now.
