PRAGER UNIVERSITY: Are the Police Racist?

"We teach what isn’t taught." - Dennis Prager

This semester of Prager University is presented by:  Heather MacDonald

"Does the truth matter?  If it does, here's a truth worth pondering:  There is no government agency more dedicated to the proposition that black lives matter than the police...Police shootings occur more frequently where officers confront armed or violently resisting suspects.  Those suspects are disproportionately black...The real problem facing inner-city black communities today is not the police, but criminals...A police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer." – H.M.

"When it comes to the subject of American police, blacks, and the deadly use of force, here is what we know...Police officers are less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white or Hispanic ones...[T]here is zero evidence of racial bias in police shootings...There is no evidence that police are killing blacks just because they are black.  You now have the truth.  Does it matter?" – H.M.
