Portland police are the problem, not the solution ... Here’s how many people had protest charges dropped in September

Okay Chris since you are too intellectually lazy to support your own claim, let me help you. The article that you posts states clearly, that racial disparity exists in all unarmed, and in all armed police shootings. In fact it states that this disparity has not changed in 5 years. So let's move to your question. Let's start with what we know to be true. Remember these totals are only an average over 5 years. This means that some years it will be more, and some years it will be less, right?

"Among unarmed victims, Black people were killed at three times the rate (218 total killed),...".

This means that 3 times(rate) as many unarmed Blacks were killed than Whites. Or, that 218 unarmed Blacks represents 3 times the total number of unarmed Whites killed by cops. This also means that only 1/3rd the number of Whites were killed compared to Blacks. Still can't work it out?

218 Unarmed Black Americans killed / 3 times = the average number of unarmed Whites over 5 years. This is roughly 73 or Or, 15 per year. Understand now. Now lets see your evidence!
The problem is that the article does not give the raw number of whites killed, but it does for the other races. How can their numbers be verified if they haven't even provided ALL of the raw numbers?

That I was a police officer?
And you went after motorcyclists? I thought that was for the highway guys.

I won't be asking anything next, because you can't even answer the FIRST! Again, I just give people the opportunity to support their position. If there are more unarmed black people killed by police then you would have already said! :ROFL1
Chris has the intelligence of Einstein ... in Einstein's present state.

OF COURSE we are! You are totally unable to defend your claim! It's VERY simple: The article does not give the raw number of whites killed, but it does for the other races! :ROFL1
I not only gave you the numbers of unarmed Whites killed(Post #139), but I even showed you how the numbers were derived. But you are semantically right, the article did not list the raw numbers. But these numbers could easily be derived from the article. Now, if you ask me to provide the names, addresses, phone numbers, death certificates, or personal history of each of the White unarmed victims, THEN YOU WIN!! And, if I somehow I did provide you with all of these things, and you stated, "that this was NOT stated in the article", THEN AGAIN YOU WIN! It is possible to interpret things that are not always stated. We do this everyday of our lives.

Just ask yourself. Just what have I learned from you? What knowledge have you posited in the debate? What questions have you answered for clarity? What specific and objective evidence have you posited to support your claim? Winning an argument is only pertinent if some knowledge about a subject is taken away by us both. So what knowledge about unarmed Blacks not being killed 2-3 times more than Whites, can I take-away from the debate? What is YOUR OWN raw data that supports your claim? Who made this claim?

Without knowledge, experience, and the facts to support your claims, cracks in your argument will eventually expose just how shallow your depth of understanding really is. You don't have to defend being wrong. This is how we acquire new knowledge. For years I always believed that insulin was produced by the Beta cells in the liver. And NOT in the pancreas. Learning the truth about my mistake was very embarrassing. But I will never forget again!

Chris155au, some good news for you. NBC has a news program for kids which should help you understand what is happening.
