Birthday thoughts about the deaths of black men and women at the hands of police
Eric Olsen

I hate to break it to you, but black women are very seldom killed by police. Black men, hispanic men and white men are murdered by police far more often than black women.

This is not to say that it isn’t a tragedy when it happens, because it is, but it’s interesting that you focus on black women above hispanic and white men when they, like all men of any race who happens to be in poverty or dealing with mental illness, are far more likely to suffer this fate.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
