Report: Police Violence Against Black Men Is Rare

Contrary to what’s been reported by the mainstream media and left-leaning politicians and activists, police violence against black men is actually rare.

Statistics by the Washington Post in 2016 show that just 16 unarmed black men, out of a population of more than 20 million, about 0.0008%, were killed by police in 2016. The year before, the number was only 36.

These statistics includes cases where the shooting was judged to be justified.

Also, data from the Police-Public Contact Survey show that, in 2015 and 2016, black men were “less likely than white men to have contact with the police in any given year.” Furthermore, “only 1.5 percent of black have more than three contacts with the police in any given year, whereas 1.2 percent of white men do.”

Finally, “only 0.08 percent of black men are injured by the police each year, approximately the same rate as for white men.”

Other statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and the Post published by WND News and the Daily Wire also show that there is no significant disparity between police violence against white men versus black men.
