    I stated quite clearly that there is a DISPROPORTIONATE IMPACT on racial minorities.

    I do not deny it - but because I am not pandering to a point of view that says it is "just racism" people don't actually READ what I said.

    I said that the underlying cause of the misuse of force - is the normalization of that misuse as standard practice in the national police culture.

    That is what causes the police to - and to get away with - shoot in this manner.

    The racial aspect is ON TOP OF that - causing a disproportionate distribution of victims in certain demographics.

    But it is not what is CAUSING the shooting problem.  And so will not be the source of its being solved.
