And so I said:
It says that people in the press and chattering classes online have hyped up more political mythology and crackpot racial theories.
The fact is that there are about 40 million African Americans alive and well in America. To the best knowledge anybody has, an average of 96 are killed by police each year. Fewer African Americans of any age are killed by police than Americans are killed in car crashes with deer. The FBI reports 3.4 million arrests of African Americans per year. Do the math. Does it sound like anyone has done a logical risk assessment here?
Everybody who is in the streets clashing with police, wants to be in the streets clashing with police. Right now people are flying in from other states to be in the streets clashing with police in Missouri. What do we tell them?
