https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2015/01/09/are-black-or-white-offenders-more-likely-to-kill-police/?utm_term=.0361bd967416 This article concludes that cops are more likely to be killed by whites, but look at the percentages, and their relevancy to the rates (which are less) at which blacks are killed by cops.
I’m sure you all know about the 13% of the population commits 52% of murders. And also greater than the population for violent crimes. And I encourage you to do research on hate crimes and which groups commit them, in the present, and also on rape and robbery statistics. To be fair, there is also ‘white collar’ crime, but that is not what people think about when they think of crime.
