Whites and blacks - equal targets for police brutality

With Caucasians busy confessing their “white guilt” under the umbrella of the #CrimingWhileWhite Twitter hashtag, the reality of police brutality has been revealed
by statistics out of the Centers For Disease Control which show that on average, almost 3 times more whites than blacks are killed per year by cops.
("In 2012, 123 African-Americans were shot dead by police. There are currently more than 43 million blacks living in the U.S.A.,"
O'Reilly said on his program. "Same year, 326 whites were killed by police bullets. Those are the latest stats available.")

With the white population roughly equating to 3 times that of the black population in the US, these stats correlate with a trend of police brutality targeting all races,
with the violence not being disproportionately directed towards blacks.
