The Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shootings have caused an uproar among leftists because they fuel their narrative that racist white police officers are hunting down innocent black men. But the statistics – brought to light by the superb work of Heather Mac Donald – tell a different story.

  • Police killed nearly twice as many whites as African-Americans in 2015
  • 50% of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26% were African-American
  • The majority of these victims had a gun or were armed otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force, according to Heather MacDonald’s speech at Hillsdale College (from stats compiled by The Washington Post)
  • More whites and hispanics die from police homicides than African-Americans
  • 12% of white and hispanic homicide deaths & 4% of African-American homicide deaths were due to police officers
  • African-American & hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at African-American than white officers, according to a Department of Justice report in 2015 about the Philadelphia Police Department
  • African-Americans are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops, according to data compiled from the Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • According to MacDonald, “If we’re going to have a ‘Lives Matter’ anti-police movement, it would be more appropriately named “White and Hispanic Lives Matter,” in her Hillsdale speech
