Black People vs. Statistics

Black people love “statistics”.

I haven’t done my own scientific study nor do I currently possess empirical data to support this, but I am convinced that this is the case…and that the media has gotten ahold of this “theory” as well.

How else can you explain the way that the release of “statistics” – especially the “findings” that paint a bleak picture for Black Americans – solicits such passionate, sweeping responses that inundate social media?
