WELL, THIS DOESN’T ADVANCE THE NARRATIVE: Study: People Faster to Shoot White Suspects than Black Suspects. “This behavioral ‘counter-bias’ might be rooted in people’s concerns about the social and legal consequences of shooting a member of a historically oppressed racial or ethnic group.”
Makes sense, at least for non-blacks. Shoot a white guy and the question is whether you were in reasonable fear of death or great bodily injury. Shoot a black guy and the questions is whether you’re a racist who targets innocent black kids for kicks.
