    Black Americans account for less than 13% of the U.S population but are killed by police at more than double the rate of white Americans... causing many to think there is an issue with racism in the police departments. What the media has failed to inform people is that Blacks representing 13% of the population are also responsible for nearly 50% of the homicides in this nation. So there is a much higher chance a police officer will have a violent negative encounter with a black male than any other race. More negative interactions with police increase the chances of a fatal encounter. The same is true for poor vs rich, males vs females. No one thinks police are killing males because they are sexist against them, there is a general understanding that males commit more violent crimes than females, therefore it increases the chances of a fatal interaction with arresting police officers. The reason people don't use the same logic with race is because the media literally censors this information and does not publish it, rather, they push a race based narrative because controversy sells.

    People who support BLM do so out of pure ignorance of reality...

    It is. a free country. In hell people still have money under the pillow. That means marginal propensity to consume. And it will stimulate growth.
