The starkest of differences was found between cross-racial shootings. A white shooter of a black victim is 10 times more likely to have his or her homicide ruled justified compared to the homicide of a black shooter on a white victim.
These differences are so strong that it is almost impossible to conclude racial bias does not play a role, says Roman the author of the study, who is also executive director at the District of Columbia Crime Policy Institute.
Oh, horseshit. Eighty percent of all cross-racial stranger homicides are committed by blacks against whites and Asians. Given that disparity, what percentage of defensive use of firearms by whites against blacks are actually justified? Eighty percent? Ninety percent?
