A study has found that African Americans are more likely than whites to die from a gunshot or other assault-related injury after arriving at a trauma center

Data from 137,618 black and white assault victims over the age of 15 treated at 100 trauma centers between 2005 and 2008 found that the overall death rate for blacks was higher than for whites, 8.9% compared to 5.1%. Blacks account for 76% of all trauma center deaths which probably has a lot to do with the high rate of violent crime in the African-American community.

This is good to know if I am ever forced to shoot and kill blacks because I am defending myself and my family from bodily harm or worse at their hands. It means whites under attack from blacks should shoot them one more time just to make sure they have been terminated with extreme prejudice.
