I did the math on some common arguments used to justify police brutality & racial bias. Hope you find these helpful for your next conversation

Math Myth 1: “The police kill more white people than black people”
Math Myth 2: “You have to look at violent crime arrests”
Math Myth 3: “Cop Killers”
Math Myth 4: “Over 50% of homicide offenders are black”
Math Myth 5: “Police killing civilians only makes up a small percentage of total homicides”
Math Myth 6: “White officers are no more likely to kill black civilians than other officers”
Math Myth 7: “Police brutality is directly correlated with the crime rate”
Math Myth 8: All of the data on police brutality is accurate and reliable
