Re: “Racial bias in police shootings

According to the US Department of Justice, blacks accounted for 52.5% of homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites 45.3% and Native Americans and Asians 2.2%. The offending rate for blacks was almost 8 times higher than whites, and the victim rate 6 times higher. Most murders were intraracial, with 84% of white homicide victims murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims murdered by blacks.
Believe that Mr. Porter is a case of "the pot calling the kettle black"! His statement "Race is the primary reason why so many white officers kill unarmed African-American males. To a white officer, and so many white Americans, the African-American male is the enemy who must be eliminated." This is just a racist statement. Majority of black murders are committed by other blacks (93%)!
I don't know what happened in Ferguson,MO , & neither does Mr Porter. Hopefully the grand jury will sort it out. We've come a long ways in race relations in the past 50 years, and have a long ways to go. It is past time to quit judging people by the color of their skin and to start judging them by their character.
