Leftist politicians cite the disproportionate ratio of Blacks among the criminal population as evidence of racism among law-enforcement personnel. Two recent studies undermine this contention.
One study by professors from Michigan State and Arizona State universities Is There Evidence of Racial Disparity in Police Use of Deadly Force?analyzed officer-involved fatal shootings in 2015 and 2016. This study found that the higher rates of Blacks getting shot by cops matched the higher rates of Blacks engaging in criminal behavior. A second study done by Harvard economist Roland G. Fryer Jr. found that police officers were more reluctant to use deadly force against Black suspects. According to crime statistics, Blacks account for 62% of robberies, 45% of assaults, and 57% of murders. This is despite Blacks comprising less than 13% of the population.
Black Lives Matter activist Buster Head complained that these stats dont account for the millions of Black slaves who were robbed, assaulted, and murdered by their white owners prior to the Civil War. The so-called crimes that Blacks are being arrested for, imprisoned for, or killed for today are better understood as spontaneous efforts at obtaining reparations for those earlier crimes committed against Blacks by whites. A flaw in Heads argument is the fact that the majority of the victims of crimes committed by Blacks are Black.
In related news, Simran Jeet Singh, the Henry R. Luce Initiative in Religion in International Affairs Post-Doctoral Fellow at NYUs Center for Religion and Media, denounced civility, calling it an attempt to impose white values on persons of color. Discussion and debate are white methods for controlling the decision making process. In other cultures personal combat is deemed a more equitable way of deciding who shall rule. Demanding that persons of color adopt white methods is tyranny.

Nice touch, John.
