If you are a man in America your chances of being killed by police is 1 in 2000. If you are black your chances are 1 in 1000. So you have twice as much risk if you are black as compared to white. And that is a white that includes all the other colors like brown and the other minorities that are shown in the data as white.

But if you are white white your chances of being shot and killed by police are infinitesimally small.
