I can agree with that; however, this false narrative that police are out to get blacks is simply not true based on statistics. Not like folks care about the facts though, right?

Well, they are and they aren't. While multiple studies show black suspects are not killed by police at a higher rate, there are also multiple studies that show that blacks are pulled over at higher rates and receive longer sentences than whites for the same crimes.

I can’t comment on the pulled over piece, but it’s my opinion that the longer sentence part today is probably more related to income inequality. If you have an overworked public attorney you are likely to end up with a longer sentence or found guilty more often than if you can afford a qualified private defense attorney.
