Just The Facts
I understand that different people can have different perceptions of the same events, perceptions often shaded by the color of our skin. But it behooves everyone, no matter your skin color, to speak the truth. For example:

Fryer Jr. in the abstract of the July 2016 paper. Mr. Fryer, who is black, told the New York Times that the finding of no racial discrimination in police shootings was 'the most surprising result of my career.'"
