Having just read this thread, the main takeaway I have is that the 143 or however many more black people killed by police that wouldn’t have been had the ratios of kills to arrests been the same for blacks as for whites, is, to Vic, insignificant, because it is such a small percentage of total arrests.

So Vic is saying that to him, 143 black lives are insignificant, which is saying exactly that 143 black lives don’t matter. So Vic, BLM is a direct response to you, and people who think like you.
