The Truth in Black and White

Statistics don’t lie and those for black crime in the US are damning. When agitators and promoters of racial animosity note that African-Americans are hugely over-represented in prison populations, what they never acknowledge is that they also commit far more crimes. No wonder police are nervous.

In America there is a recurring theme among those on the left that police target black men. This goes right to the top. President Obama said this immediately after the shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana: “We have seen tragedies like this too many times. All of us as Americans should be troubled by these shootings, because these are not isolated incidents. They’re symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system…the data shows that black folks are more vulnerable to these kinds of incidents.”

Does the data show this? It does if you are a charlatan or an idiot.
