If Parscale was black, there is a good chance he would be dead now.

Not to minimize the disparity of use of force against black people by police, they are killed at twice the rate of whites and that is fucking horrible and needs to be fixed, but there are over 10 million arrests in the US every year, of those about 1000 end in a police killing, of those about 250 are black and of those maybe a couple dozen are un-armed.

It is fucking tragic and police reform is necessary, they are far too ready to use force and escalate situations unnecessarily but media and social media in particular are giving an entire generation of black Americans PTSD for something that is extremely rare.
