I’m just stuck on this main point: your data that you believe shows blacks make up 30% of arrestees but 40% of deaths. Surely that indicates a discrepancy to you in the risks that Blacks face. Claiming the absolute risk is low is just as silly as saying hospitals don’t need to worry about spreading MRSA since most people in hospitals die of other things.

The difference between 30% and 40% is *huge* from a math standpoint. (You’d have to get rid of *25%* of the existing black deaths to drop the 40% down to the 30% where it “should” be just accepting your numbers)

As I indicated in an earlier point, you could try to present data that the black men being killed somehow deserve it, but the data you presented does not offer any such explanation.
