The justification for this kind of stuff is always well, black communites are just overpoliced due to more crime, so duh, it figures that more killings will happen as a result of sheer numbers!. Ben Shapiro is a big fan of this one.

This kind of analysis leaves you with the impression that this many people being killed is just a sheer unchangeable fact of existence, and more sinisterly, it also gives the impression that there’s perhaps some inherent cultural difference in black people that justifies this kind of policing.

Every time someone brings up “well data shows that black people really DO commit more crimes per capita!” They are conveniently leaving out that the median income for blacks is way lower than whites, and once normalized for that, the crime rate is the same.

Poverty is the contributor of crime here. Not race.
