All Black Males comparison to 18x
This was asked in an earlier version of the question but has since been deleted.
What would be the rate if we allowed for armed black males?
From the same WP 2015 data
| killed | population | total / million popn
Highly likely. The infant mortality rate in Iran is 13 (per 1000 births); the infant mortality rate for African Americans in Ohio (but not specialized to Youngstown) is 15.6.
There may be difference in definition (in the USA, some neonatal deaths that are included in the IMR are classified as stillbirths in other countries and excluded), but Ohio would not ...
The claim about 18 times more likely is published with more detail by Heather McDonald in the Washington Post article Academic research on police shootings and race 19 July 2016.
the per capita rate of officers being feloniously killed is 45 times higher than the rate at which unarmed black males are killed by cops. And an officer’s chance of getting ...
The images backing the original claim are easily disproven. One of them is a taken from the Klara Classical Radio Station 2004 ad campaign. The campaign modified a portrait by Barbara Kraft, painted 28 years after the death of Mozart:
Kraft based this painting on contemporary paintings of Mozart provided by Mozart's sister, including these (note that the ...
Yes, according to the US Department of Justice document Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008:

Homicide offenders were:
Felony Murder Offenders were:
The report makes the following statement about potential bias due to unknown ...
Lincoln county has published this statement:
In this Directive there were several exceptions identified recognizing that not everyone could or should wear a face covering: ...
People of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public.
So yes, they most certainly did.
No, there is currently no such requirement or exception to that requirement. For one week the health guidelines related to masks in Lincoln County, OR included an exception for people of color who were concerned about racial profiling/harassment for wearing a mask. That exception was removed in an update to the directive, and there are currently no ...
The article doesn't link to the Mother Jones article that spawned it, but it's here.
The article makes several points:
Consuming dairy has to be done carefully by people who are lactose-intolerant (a condition more common among blacks and Asians than among whites)
Dairy doesn't reduce the incidence of osteoporosis, which blacks are less likely to get.
Right now, the answer is no, though in 2007 when Obama made the claim the answer was yes. In both cases the numbers are very close.
Data on the number of male African Americans in Federal, state, and local prisons and jails are available from the Bureau of Justice statistics here
Data on the number of male African Americans enrolled in college are available ...
I'm just providing the numbers. No claim about the cause can be made.
Shapiro is claiming an increase from a low rate (by today's standards) in the early sixties up to a high rate today, while MLK states pre-sixties that it was already high compared to whites.
I'd say both are correct.
The trends for one vs two parent families has been basically the same ...
It depends on the measure
Mapping Police Violence (MPV) says:
Unarmed black people were killed at 5x the rate of unarmed whites in 2015
This is a real statistic, but it is important to understand what it says. For every million white people and every million black people, a certain number of unarmed people of that race are killed by police. That ...
See 30 years of research on race differences in cognitive ability (2005).
Currently, the 1.1 standard deviation difference in average IQ between Blacks
and Whites in the United States is not in itself a matter of empirical dispute.
More recently, it has been observed that "[t]he IQ gap between
Blacks and Whites has been reduced by 0.33 SD". They ...
The full report (downloaded from link in question) talks about methodology on page 8. They compare various assets and debts of different ethnic groups and use these values to calculate net worth for the groups. These values were determined by surveying different communities.
For the NASCC project in general, about 70,000 personalized advanced letters were ...
I'm looking for a brief historical analysis on the "illegitimacy rates" in the black community
Tldr; The rate for non-whites was ~21% in 1960 and 72% for blacks in 1998. The figures and references are below.
Did the single motherhood rate jump to 70% since the 1960s?
It has risen beyond 70% according to the CDC. This data was published by the CDC ...
The ASVAB (AFQT) is not technically an IQ test.
IQ Tests, per se, are not issued to recruits for the armed forces. The U.S. Army does test people's capabilities, but not in a standardized IQ test (at least on the scale of the entire military recruit base) because they use a different testing method, the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The ...
Unless there are more recent statistics on SNAP usage than the official statistics available from the US Department of Agriculture or someone has a very creative definition of "highest useage", the statement is false. If we go back a few years, the statistics may however back the claim.
In the statistics, there are two different values, which both could be ...
No. An answer on Politics.SE quotes from Wikipedia:
according to a database compiled by Mother Jones, the race of the shooters is proportionate to the overall US population, although Asians are overrepresented and Latinos underrepresented.
This includes way more mass shootings than the other answer.
This is based on data from Mother Jones as reported at ...
I think James Watson's claim is that there is a difference, and that that difference is caused by genetics.
The quoted claim includes:
inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa
people wanted to believe that everyone was born with equal intelligence
His claim appears to be contrary to current summaries on the matter, for which Wikipedia ...

These are not actually rape statistics, but survey results, which the image then incorrectly extrapolates from.
According to Business Insider the BJS rejects the given interpretation of these numbers, and they do not use them anymore:
Lynn Langton, the researcher who oversees victimization statistics for BJS, acknowledged that the methods of the 2008 report ...
There's another issue this question doesn't address: the 95 percent Republican part of the equation.
There are 3497 registered voters in the county; 917 are Democrats; 67 are neither GOP or D. That makes the registered voters in the county about a quarter registered Democrats. In 2012 election, about 17.9 percent of those who cast ballots voted for Obama.
Generally agree with @Malvolio's answer, though to expand on a claim within the article as requested:
"a strong correlation to calcium consumption and an increased risk of prostate cancer, unproportionally affecting African men. Furthermore, both black children and adults generally secrete less calcium on a daily basis than white people, making them ...
There are three ways of currently trying to define what skin color ancient Egyptians had: History records, DNA and language. All three seem to agree on Egyptians having a darker complexion, however the exact skin color - like it happens with almost any person - is impossible and useless to define in a white-black dichotomy. The conclusion in this answer is ...
An examination of the methods shows, at best, the claim should probably be worded a little more carefully.
"In recent decades, rich black kids have been more likely to go to prison than poor white kids."

The measure of wealth in the study was total assets minus total debt for individuals in the cohort in 1985. At that time, ...
I can't fully answer the title question but I will address part of the quote that it's based on in your post.
I'm not going to attack the whole statement but I will include some counter examples to part of it.

According the Washington Post database:
People fatally shot by police were:
19% Blacks in 2018 through August 30th
23% Blacks in 2017
24% Blacks in 2016
26% Blacks in 2015
14% of the US population reported that they were Black in the most recent census.
Please let me start with a small rant. This tweet is, in my opinion, outright ignorant and quite distasteful:
Assumption that modern Egyptians are the same as Ancient Egyptians. I doubt that he personally knows any Ancient Egyptians.
"All I know are" is not representative sample of population of 80+ million nation.
He drives original complaints to ...
tl;dr; There are indications for this effect, but the research is still unconclusive. The claim as stated is probably false.
This statement refers to the widely studied Stereotype threat effect, which is often described as the risk of conforming to stereotypes of one's social group.
In particular, it refers to the study STEREOTYPE ...
No, not every single, 'big' pipeline passes through Native American lands. There are a lot of pipelines and they are arranged in a huge network, some terminating at both ends having never passed through Native American lands.
First, the claim is a bit weaselly. What is a 'big' pipeline? They don't define it. The US Department of Transportation (DOT) ...
