Race is not like hair color

From New Scientist, Black men are 2.3 times more likely to be killed by police (77 per 100,000 vs 33). Black women are 3.2 times more likely to die during pregnancy (41 per 100,000 vs 13). 

So despite some people's ardent desires, I think the numbers are clear that there is much work to do before we can just stop thinking and talking about addressing racism in the United States.
