Read Helpful Rebuttals For Racist Talking Points Made by: @CharCubed • Inspired by: @sujoy_shah


“Cops kill more white people than Black people.”

There are an estimated 5.7x more white people in America than black people–so yes, by sheer numbers, white people are killed by police more. But cops don’t kill white people simply because they’re white, and Black people are killed by cops at a rate 3X HIGHER than white people, often when unarmed. That’s a glaring inequality, and it exists because of race. And hey, consider this: the fact that police brutalize and kill people is a problem IN GENERAL, which is why we should all be against police brutality. Yes?
