Figures… Obama Uses Bogus Statistics to Accuse US Police of Being Racist
Barack Obama attacked the nation’s police today during his speech at the launch of My Brother’s Keeper.
Obama accused police of disproportionately stopping and arresting young men of color.
Of course, Barack Obama is once again using bogus statistics to push an agenda.
In a deeply personal response to outbreaks of racially motivated protests, President Barack Obama on Monday blamed a lack of opportunity in minority communities and harsher treatment of black and Hispanic men by police for fueling a sense of “unfairness and powerlessness.”
The country’s first black president called for a nationwide mobilization to reverse inequalities and said the cause will remain a mission for the rest of his presidency and his life. “There are consequences to indifference,” Obama said.
Helping launch a foundation to assist young minorities, Obama said the catalysts of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, and in Baltimore were the deaths of young black men and “a feeling that law is not always applied evenly in this country.”
“They experience being treated differently by law enforcement — in stops and in arrests, and in charges and incarcerations,” Obama said. “The statistics are clear, up and down the criminal justice system. There’s no dispute.”
As Zero Hedge reported, the mortality rates among young black males is 80 to 90 percent higher than any other group.
And the percentage of blacks killed by police gunfire is lower than the percentage of black subjects firing on police.
Then there’s this… There were 431 black killers of “whites” in 2014, compared to 193 “white” killers of blacks while blacks make up only 13% of the national population. There were approximately 6,000 black on black murders last year.
