Taxpayer Funded National Public Radio Declares Black Shooting Targets Are RACIST

Everything is racist in the age of Obama. Even shooting targets which use a black silhouette on a white background.

This sounds like another lame attempt to suggest that all cops are racists.

From taxpayer funded NPR:

Shooters Quicker To Pull Trigger When Target Is Black, Study Finds

Are most people more likely to pull the trigger of a gun if the person they’re shooting at is black?

A new meta-analysis set out to answer that question. Yara Mekawi of the University of Illinois and her co-author, Konrad Bresin, drew together findings from 42 different studies on trigger bias to examine whether race affects how likely a target is to be shot.

“What we found is that it does,” Mekawi tells NPR’s Arun Rath. “In our study we found two main things: First, people were quicker to shoot black targets with a gun, relative to white targets with a gun. And … people were more trigger-happy when shooting black targets compared to shooting white targets.”

That is, shooters weren’t just faster to fire at black targets; they were also more likely to fire at a black target.

Couldn’t it be that a black silhouette on a white field is just easier to see?

No. That would make too much sense.

NOTE: Some commenters have claimed that the image used in this post is dishonest but it’s the exact same target type that NPR used in their story.
