This graph shows that MORE whites are killed per year then black people.
But what everyone’s talking about is the “PER CAPITA” numbers, or in this case the number per million”. and doing the math that way makes it look the way they want it for the narrative of the day… “POLICE ARE KILLING BLACK PEOPLE MORE THAN WHITES”.
But – Washington post says
Rate of shootings remains steady
Despite the unpredictable events that lead to fatal shootings, police nationwide have shot and killed almost the same number of people annually — nearly 1,000 — since The Post began its project. Probability theory may offer an explanation. It holds that the quantity of rare events in huge populations tends to remain stable absent major societal changes, such as a fundamental shift in police culture or extreme restrictions on gun ownership.
Black Americans are killed at a much higher rate than White Americans
Although half of the people shot and killed by police are White, Black Americans are shot at a disproportionate rate. They account for less than 13 percent of the U.S. population, but are killed by police at more than twice the rate of White Americans. Hispanic Americans are also killed by police at a disproportionate rate.
So the RATE of killings may be higher for black people but the actual numbers show that MORE WHITES are killed then blacks “period”.
