Studies of Americans’ unconscious beliefs shows that most people — white and black — think black people are dangerous and both average folks and police are quicker to shoot black than white people.
Where does the cognitive belief that black people are dangerous come from?
Partly, it comes from the media. A new study by Color of Change found that, while 51% of the people arrested for violent crime in New York City are black, 75% of the news reports about such arrests highlighted black alleged perpetrators.

Until that word "racist" loses it's ability to intimidate white people, the silliness will persist. In Clveland Texas, in 2011, 25 black guys raped an 11 year old hispanic girl, and video taped it. The black community in that town supported the rapists. How many of you ever heard that story?

Only two adult males requested trials, and juries handed both life or 99-year prison sentences. Eleven other adult males received 15-year sentences in exchange for pleading guilty to sexual assault of a child, while the seven juveniles entered guilty pleas for seven-year probated sentences.
