Take 2020: 457 White, 241 Black.In fact, here is a non-racist fact....
More white people die at the hands of police in the US:
Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 213 civilians having been shot, 30 of whom were Black, in the first three months of 2021.www.statista.com
If he was white, he would have, statistically, stood a bigger chance to die.
Unfortunately, the black man died because he tried to kill the police officers.
Whites in US 76.3%, Blacks in US 13.4%
457/.763 = 599 (if everyone is US was white) VS
241/.134 = 1798 (if everyone is US was black)
Chance of dying at hands of police is 1798/599 = 3x greater if you are black than if you are white.
