actually i think this is the second or maybe third such study to show this result.

There is widespread concern about racial disparities in fatal officer-involved shootings and that these disparities reflect discrimination by White officers. Existing databases of fatal shootings lack information about officers, and past analytic approaches have made it difficult to assess the contributions of factors like crime. We create a comprehensive database of officers involved in fatal shootings during 2015 and predict victim race from civilian, officer, and county characteristics. We find no evidence of anti-Black or anti-Hispanic disparities across shootings, and White officers are not more likely to shoot minority civilians than non-White officers. Instead, race-specific crime strongly predicts civilian race. This suggests that increasing diversity among officers by itself is unlikely to reduce racial disparity in police shootings.

The only people killing black people at abnormally high rates is other black people.

I was watching a video of Candace Owens stating the very same things at one of her speeches. There were audience members telling her to shut up. The problem is it is very difficult for people to believe facts when they have had it pounded into their head for years that cops are running around slaughtering blacks. The facts don't fit the liberal conquer and divide strategy of the looney left.
