I See A Pattern Here

Sharing is Caring!

It’s raw numbers which is why you should use per capita measurements.


Blacks score so high in raw numbers because they interact with the police more (aka commit more crime)

Per Capita Fact: for every 10K whites who interact with the police 4 are killed; For every 10K blacks 3 are killed

Using per capita numbers you can say things like:

* police kill 33% more whites than blacks per 10,000 interactions (of the same race) with police

* police kill 3/4ths as many blacks as whites per 10,000 interactions of the same race
