Black men are much more likely to be killed by other black men than by the police.
The debate on cops and blacks deserves facts instead of myths. If the Black Lives Matter crowd is correct, bloodthirsty, racist cops are blasting black men like clay pigeons at a shooting range. The pace of this alleged slaughter is breathtaking.
The Nation of Islam’s Nuri Muhammad on October 10 told the 20th-anniversary gathering of the Million Man March: “Every other day, we see a young black man being murdered by the Blue Klux Klan.” That adds up to 182 such homicides per year. “When we’re hearing reports that every 28 hours, a black person is murdered by police, it feels like we’re in a war,” Black Lives Matter activist Cherno Biko told Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly on a September 4 special on this topic. “It feels like we’re under occupation.”
