Young black men commit homicide at nearly ten times the rate of young white and Hispanic males combined
That astronomically higher homicide-commission rate means that police officers are going to be disproportionately in black neighborhoods to fight crime, where they will more likely encounter armed shooting suspects. If the black crime rate were the same as the white crime rate, the victims of police shootings would most certainly also be equal among the races. Asians are minorities, which, according to leftist ideology, should make them the target of police brutality. But they barely show up in police-shooting data because their crime rates are so low. It is black crime - not racism - that drives police presence and activity in black neighborhoods.
