In the US black males 18-34 have a nine times higher chance of being shot and killed by police than a white male the same age.
The facts are the facts and everyone in this country should be aware
of the issue and if they're uncomfortable about it, maybe demand change instead in the policing practices instead of the athlete's choice to protest.
“According to a 2013 study conducted by the Pew Research Center, black men were six times as likely as white men to be incarcerated in 2010”
“According to the US Department of Justice, African Americans accounted for 52.5% of all homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites 45.3% and "Other" 2.2%. The offending rate for African Americans was almost 8 times higher than whites, and the victim rate 6 times higher. Most homicides were intraracial, with 84% of white victims killed by whites, and 93% of African Americans victims were killed by African Americans.”
“In 2013, number and percentage of murder arrests by race were:
Black or African Americans 4,379 = 52.2%
White Americans (including Hispanic Americans
) 3,799 = 45.3%”
Lets not make this a F1 problem- it is not about race, it is about racing.
