Police killed at least 102 unarmed black people in 2015, nearly twice each week.

Nearly 1 in 3 black people killed by police in 2015 were identified as unarmed, though the actual number is likely higher due to underreporting

37% of unarmed people killed by police were black in 2015 despite black people being only 13% of the U.S. population

Unarmed black people were killed at 5x the rate of unarmed whites in 2015

Only 9 of the 102 cases resulted in officer(s) being charged with a crime

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
Expediency asks the question - is it politic?
Vanity asks the question - is it popular?
But conscience asks the question - is it right?
And there comes a time when one must take a position
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
but one must take it because it is right.
(Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

I don't know why some of us act so surprised when we are hated and abused, scandalized and misused, slaughtered, beaten and killed by the racist elements in America.    Maybe some of us have forgotten our past and our Black History.  And maybe some of us have never known it.
