See comment below because the FBI report throws most, if not all, Hispanic crime with white people as one group. But all other data on people killed by cops, they break apart those two. So this is my first from a liberal perspective (the source of our problems is economic disparity from slavery; and not so much our institutions):

Hon-Hispanic Whites are 63% of the US population, and African-Americans make up a little less than 13%. Thus, a disparity. However, when factoring in police interaction — violent crimes or incarceration, for example — both demographic groups are 40% of the total, give or take a few percentage points, but twice as many white persons are killed at hands of the police (about 500 to 250).
