Yep, no doubt about it. The stats are staggering but not in the way you might think.
Anyone whose been following the dispute involving some players in the National Football League (NFL) in the U.S. where instead of standing for the National Anthem are kneeling on one knee, would be aware that the protest is over the disproportionate number of blacks killed in America by the police.
If you followed the usual suspects in the mainstream media like CNN, MSNBC or The Washington Post etc you’d be convinced that those that take the knee at the NFL know their stuff and have a case.
And you’d be wrong, as those damn pesky facts, stats and inconvenient truths impose themselves. Peter Kirsanow from the U.S. Commission of Civil Rights lays it all out.
