, I realize now that you referred to graphics I had in a comment above. Please read the actual words I boldly placed above a graphic to show how bullshit numbers from the left or right are still bullshit. The HeyJackAss data is still accurate and makes a simple point: Use of force results won’t match the racial demographics until violence is the same in all communities. This would be called “common sense.”

ALSO, , this is my caption under this “inaccurate racist meme.” I couldn’t be more clear: “Trump Tweeted this inaccurate racist meme, and it’s reason #1052 he shouldn’t be president. Any sensible person could see these stats are vastly wrong. Murder is intraracial: 83% of whites kill whites and 91% of blacks kill blacks, according to U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics. Also true based on known suspects: 409 whites were killed by blacks in 2013, and 189 blacks were killed by whites, so it IS true that there’s an imbalance in interracial killings. I also use this data when people say blacks have to fear of their safety from whites, which felt like a consensus sentiment from the movie “Get Out.” As an aggregate, that’s patently a paranoid perspective when twice as many blacks kill whites than vice versa.”
