ARE NFL KNEELERS ON TARGET?
NFL players who kneel during the opening ceremony of a game are protesting the needless shooting of Black people by the police.
Here are some actual numbers:
In 2016, of the 985 people shot by cops, 223 (22.6%) were Black.
Since Blacks represent 12% of the U.S. population, in a statistically balanced society the number of Blacks shot by police should be 12% of 985, which is 118.
Q: Why is the number of Blacks shot by police 89% higher than population statistics indicate?
