Holy shit i'm sick of these articles.

Yes, steriotypes exist about black people. Yes, those steriotypes have to do with black people being poor, being criminal, etc.

No, this does not mean "america is dangerous by default" if you are black. Hell, what do you mean by "dangerous by default"? You could go so far as to say our healthcare system makes the country "dangerous by default"

There are issues, I have no issue with that. Black people are assumed more dangerous, and as a result are reacted against more strongly both by police and by the average person, but articles like this are sensationalist bullshit. How about we actually address the real issues instead of liking to bullshit click-bait and feeling like we accomplished something?
