See all the big moments and relive the AdvoCare 500 from Atlanta as drivers battle with only 2 races left until the Chase.
PuttPutt: Clinton said Wednesday that the shootings in Oklahoma and North Carolina added two more names "to a long list of African-Americans killed by police officers. It's unbearable and it needs to become intolerable." But the truth is: An analysis of federal police crime statstics and the Washington Post police shooting database shows that fully 12% of all whites and hispanics who die of homicide are killed by cops. In contrast, only 4% of black homicide victims are killed by cops. But isn't it a sign of bias that blacks make up 36% of police shooting victims, but only 13% of the U.S. population? It is not. And common sense suggests why: Police shootings occur more frequently where officers confront armed or violently resisting suspects. Those suspects are disproportionately black. According to the most recent study by the Dept. of Justice, although blacks were only about 15% of the population in the 75 largest counties in the U.S., they were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of murders, and 45% of assaults. In New York City, blacks commit over three quarters of all shootings, though they are only 25% of the city's population. Whites, by contrast, commit only 2% of all shootings, though they are 34% of the population. New York's crime disparities are repeated in virtually every racially diverse city in America. The real problem facing inner city black neighborhoods today is not the police, but criminals. Borrowed from RealClearPolitics article yesterday
