Young black men are also 21 times more likely to be killed by cops than young white men, according to one ProPublica analysis of the data we have. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also compiled data which shows that people of color are most likely to be killed by cops overall. In short, people who belong to marginalized communities are at a higher risk of being shot than those who are not.

they should win handily.

The American people are ready for a monarchy.
Then the shooting of unarmed Americans would not
provoke so much discussion and rancor.

corporate welfareAnd all these crocodile tears
about 27 active warfronts
can be washed down the gutters,
along with the blood and guts
from unarmed victims of police militarization.

But we may have to send survivors
to Canada for treatment, since America
will remain one of the few nations
who refuse to provide nonprofit heath care.
