Out of 5 Americans

According to this CBS poll, which is only one study, rounding up and off:

3 out of 5 Americans say police treat white people better than black people.

2 out of 5 say police treat white and black people equally.

1 out of 20, say they treat black people better than white people.

4 out of 5 Black Americans say police treat white people better.

1 out of 5 say police treat white and black people equally.

Less than 1 out of 20 say they treat black people better.

At the same time, just over half of white Americans say whites are treated better by police (52%), and just under half (45%) say the police treat white and black people equally.

America as a whole looks more in line with the views of white Americans, the majority, but only by twice the difference, and there are far more than twice the white people than there are black people.  3 out of 5 Americans who say white people are treated better by the police is closer to 2.5 out of 5, white Americans who say the same, than it is 4 out of 5, black Americans who say the same, but that is a half point out of five of a difference, compared to a point out of 5.

I’m no statistician, as my work clearly shows, but the edge is not in conservative’s favor.  The times, whether or not they are a they, as they say, are a’ changin’.
