Black Lives Matter activists and their hatred towards whites and law enforcement have fooled countless individuals into believing there is a racial pandemic of police officers killing blacks. However, when they are confronted with these 5 simple statistics, their true racist intentions are left without any argument.
Once in a while, a random offender who happens to be black is gunned down by a police officer. Needless to say, these are headliners the media and liberal activists choose as poster children to represent the black community — not the artists, not the CEOs, not the teachers, and not the community servants — but it’s all part of the plan.
Black lives don’t really matter to the left or the blacks screaming for social justice. If they did, you’d see demonstrations condemning the rampant black-on-black crime, the 1,876 black babies aborted each day, or even the fact that Muslim Arabs still own 14 million black slaves to this day. Instead, we see selective outrage towards police and whites, while blacks embrace the BLM movement funded and founded by the very religion whose prophet Muhammad owned black slaves and described Satan as looking like one of his black slaves.
However, since the BLM desires our full attention on this particular issue, let’s give it to them. Let’s focus on just a few of the statistics that have to do with black lives and law enforcement and completely obliterate everything the #BlackLivesMatter movement claims to represent.
Also, for anyone who would like to object to this data for nothing other than that it goes against their agenda, all links for the research are provided within each of the statistics. Lastly, some credit is owed to journalist Jerome Hudson, who describes himself as a “young black conservative” and has garnered racial scrutiny from the left for doing so.
1. 91 Percent of Murdered Blacks Are Killed By Other Blacks
You may have heard this one before, however, when compared to other races, there is undoubtedly a disturbing homicide problem within the black community. While an average of 91 percent of murdered blacks are killed by a member of their own race, an average of 83 percent of murdered whites are killed by other whites, according to Barack Obama’s US. Department of Justice.
Aside from this, blacks also kill more whites than are killed by whites. In fact, in 2013 alone, blacks killed 409 whites while whites killed a total of 189 blacks.
2. Blacks Commit a Grossly Disproportionate Amount of Crime
Although blacks only account for 13 percent of the U.S. population, they actually commit a larger portion of criminal offenses than the majority. In 2012, data shows that white males made up 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders, but black males made up 6.6 percent of the population and committed 5,531, according to an FBI report.
“In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts. The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster,” Hudson writes.
3. Blacks Make Up Only 13% of the Population But Commit Up To Half of Homicides
The black community is not only eating itself, it’s doing so at an alarming rate. DOJ statistics show that from 1980 to 2008, blacks committed 52 percent of homicides. In 2013 alone, blacks committed 38 percent of all murders, while the white majority committed just 31 percent. In short, there are only a fifth as many blacks as there are whites in America, yet they carry out a lion’s share of murders.

4. Cops Kill More Whites Than Blacks
I can already hear the critics saying, “That’s because there are more whites than blacks.” Of course, that’s true, but since we established that there are more black murderers than white murderers, wouldn’t it make sense that more blacks are shot by police? Still, this isn’t the case.
The Washington Post reports that 49 percent of people killed by officers are white and 30 percent are black. So, even though blacks kill more people than whites do, fewer are being killed by police. Still, it would make sense that the aforementioned homicidal activity accounts for such a small populace raising their chances of being killed by the police. After all, if you don’t commit crimes, the chances of a cop shooting at you significantly drop.
5. Black Are 160 Times More Likely To Be Killed By Other Blacks
It goes without saying that police brutality exists. Although putting on a badge doesn’t somehow magically turn a person into an abuser, there are some abusers who’ve put on badges. However, the occasional sensationalized killer cop doesn’t necessarily equate to an epidemic.
In fact, according to criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson’s research of FBI reports from January 2009 to December 2012, 112 blacks died in both justified and unjustified police killings, while blacks killed 17,888 other blacks a year during this period. That’s an average of 28 blacks killed by cops each year and average of 4,472 blacks killed by other blacks each year. Literally, that means that blacks are 160 times more likely to die at the hands of another black person than police.
Fortunately, facts can’t be racist. They don’t have an agenda and they don’t change based on someone’s feelings. Facts are just facts and, judging by these facts, it would appear that if there really is a major issue of police killing blacks, it originates not from racism but from the black community’s criminality. Instead of protesting the repercussions of rampant criminality, why not protest the abuse of blacks by their own people? Or are we simply perpetuating selective outrage?
