QuoteThat literally proves what I said, you idiot. Go read my post again, but this time read what I wrote - not what you want to hear.
QuoteMike CI - "Blacks have always been killed at a higher rate."You - "They have not and are not."
Quote from: AllPurposeAtheist on July 25, 2016, 09:49:33 PMGilgamesh, I haven't read all of your posts, but it seems pretty clear to me that you are convinced that black people are by in large criminals mostly deserving of whatever shit police and the courts throw at them and commit crimes at a far higher rate than anyone else.
QuoteI'm not entirely sure how you claiming they are not killed at a higher rate is in agreement with the numbers that show they are killed at a higher rate. But by all means, inform me how that's not what you actually meant.
Quote"That's not what the numbers show. They show the opposite of that."
QuoteAs The Post noted in a new analysis published last week, that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers. But because the white population is approximately five times as great as the black population, that means unarmed black Americans were five times as likely as unarmed white Americans to be shot and killed by a police officer. Of all of the unarmed people shot and killed by police in 2015, 40 percent of them were black men, even though black men make up just 6 percent of the nation's population." About 13 percent of all black people who have been fatally shot by police since January 2015 were unarmed, compared with 7 percent of all white people.
Quote from: Shiranu on July 25, 2016, 11:54:11 PMYes, the numbers that show blacks are murdered at a higher rate proportionally shows that blacks aren't murdered at a higher rate proportionately.
QuoteYou are disingenuous.
QuoteYou included 'proportionally' in your last post because you became aware of your error.
QuoteWhite people are killed at a high rate than blacks in America.
QuoteOwn it at least, coward.
Quote from: Shiranu on July 26, 2016, 03:00:52 AMI added it because you aren't grasping that proportionately is what is relevant. Yes, more whites are killed because they make up about 62% more of the population; I don't think there is a single person here who wouldn't expect that. The issue is they are killed at a higher rate than whites... that if you are black, your rate of being murdered is significantly higher than if you are white.
Quote from: Gilgamesh on July 26, 2016, 08:41:34 AMLook up the definition of rate. Your misunderstanding of the term is where your folly lies. Whites are, in fact, killed at a higher rate than blacks. If you choose to double down after this, I will no longer respond to you in this thread.
