So when someone tries to kill a cop no one cares, only when some black person is shot. Why is that?

Officer shot multiple times at traffic stop, suspects at large

A Texas police officer is in the hospital after being shot multiple times during a traffic stop overnight, authorities said.

If it had been a cop shooting a black person all hell would break loose. But if someone shoots a cop it's ho hum, what's for breakfast? Here are some facts compiled by the Washington Post

1. Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks.
2. More whites and Hispanics die from police homicides than blacks.
3. The Post‘s data does show that unarmed black men are more likely to die by the gun of a cop than an unarmed white man…but this does not tell the whole story. The “unarmed” label is literally accurate, but it frequently fails to convey highly-charged policing situations. In a number of cases, if the victim ended up being unarmed, it was certainly not for lack of trying. At least five black victims had reportedly tried to grab the officer’s gun, or had been beating the cop with his own equipment. Some were shot from an accidental discharge triggered by their own assault on the officer.
4. Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers.
5. Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. This is according to FBI data, which also found that 40 percent of cop killers are black.
