Survey shows a sizable number of Americans think OVER TEN THOUSAND unarmed black men are killed by police each year. What would YOU guess?

Feb 24th

After the BLM riots this past summer, Americans are still charged up about issues of race and police brutality. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans have a very skewed understanding of the extent of the deadly use of force by police across the nation.

Skeptic Magazine recently conducted a survey in which they asked Americans how many unarmed black men were killed by police in 2019. Before proceeding, let's do a little in-house survey to check your knowledge.

The answer?

13.

Then, Americans were asked what percentage of people killed by police in 2019 were black. Before I answer, let's take another in-house survey:

The answer for this one?

25%.

Among others, the discrepancy shown in the study was noted by DailyWire's Matt Walsh:

As you can see, perception around police use of force is directly correlated to political affiliation. Why would that be? After all, I've been aware of the general ballpark of these stats for years, following the Ferguson riots in 2014 when BLM first came on the scene and started touting systemic racism in the ranks of law enforcement.

Could it be that those on the left side of the aisle are hearing a counterfactual narrative from their preferred news outlets? But how could that be? After all, the mainstream media is touted as the austere fAcT-cHeCkeRs and purveyors of fActS. They want to shut down "radical" outlets like Fox that supposedly peddle in "disinformation," after all!

Why then do 22% of "very liberal" individuals believe 10,000 OR MORE unarmed black men were shot by police in a single year????

Why does the same group think that 60% of all police shootings involve blacks?

May I submit to you that perhaps, just perhaps, the "objective" media and their big tech friends aren't so full of facts and truth as they'd have you believe. Perhaps, after hearing months-long rhetoric on "systemic" injustice and brutality, the American public really does believe that thousands upon thousands of people are being slaughtered in the streets every year.

The consequences of such purposeful mistruth is staggering, yet the cameras remain singularly pointed on the rabble-rousers who broke into the Capitol.

What do you think the chances are that CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, and others will correct their disinformation campaigns with the truth?

I'll give you a hint:
