Please keep in mind when going through these facts, they do not represent the black community as a whole. As with any other community in our society, there are far more good people, than there are bad people. Unfortunately, all of the trouble the bad people are causing, can make it very hard to remember that.

Black lives matter denies white people commit less crime.
(**) Now there is a twist here that most people are unaware of. When black lives matter quotes its figures for proving police are targeting blacks unfairly, they apply proportionality to make the numbers appear more significant, which they are. However they do not do this to the statistics about who commits more crime. I have applied proportionality to the statistics below to show what they do not want you to know. The truth. Keep in mind here. If you apply proportionality to only one side of an issue, that is called disinformation. Where I come from, we call it a lie.
DOJ Statistics (Full Report)
At just 13% of the population, blacks are responsible for nearly half of all homicides committed in the United States.
DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, 52% of homicides, were committed by blacks, compared to 45% of homicides committed by whites.
In 2013, black criminals carried out 38% of murders, compared to 31.1% for whites,
(Even on their own merits, these numbers show that blacks commit more of these crimes than whites. I am not going to do the math, but by applying proportionality, meaning we consider the fact that there are five times more white people in this country than blacks, the numbers become pretty staggering to say the least.)
From 2011 to 2013, 38.5 per cent of people arrested for major crimes like, murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black. At only 13% , that's three times higher than their population numbers. When you take into account the fact that black males aged 15-34, who only make up around 3% of the population, and that they are responsible for the vast majority of these crimes. it becomes pretty clear that black lives matters' claims are flat out not supported by the facts,
So, it all becomes pretty simple from here on out. If you support black lives matters' claims, and by default support the organization. You are supporting a lie, based on the facts. The very fact that these people are skewing the numbers through the use, and exclusion of proportionality to meet there needs, should be a dead give away for people.
A truth built on lies is still...you guessed it...a lie.
On a final note, some common sense.
Black community's generally have higher crime rates than most white communities, especially in urban areas. The facts show this to be true.
We hire police to manage high crime areas, so where do you think the police are?
So, since black communities attract a higher police presence (due to the high crime rate) it stands to reason that police are going to focus more on these areas, so yes, they are targeting black communities more than white communities.
For a reason.
If you promote the effect, without also presenting, (or in this case denying), the cause. It brings us right back to disinformation. Disinformation is a lie.
