Police Violence Broken Down

This chart was the  most interesting part of the project for me. Looking at just numbers, more white people get murdered by police every year. But if you were to break it down, there are more Caucasians in the US then there are African Americas. So number wise there are more whites killed then blacks but there are also more whites then there are blacks.

There are 160 million more white people in America then there are black people. So technically the number is higher among whites then blacks but if there were the same amount of people in each race then blacks are 2.5 more likely to be killed.
