America is once again boiling over its treatment of blacks. Violent demonstrations have begun throughout the US following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd in Minnesota. Even its heat has reached the White House. However, this is not the first time that people have taken to the streets on the treatment of blacks in America.
History is very old. Especially with police treatment of blacks. According to the Mapping Police Violence, a record-keeping organization of police violence, 7666 black people died in American police action between 2013 and 2019. This figure is startling. Talking about the population of blacks in America, their share is just 13 percent. But police attacks are more on them. According to statistics, two and a half times more blacks were killed by police than white Americans.
Almost every month a black dies
According to 'Mapping Police Violence', not a single month was spent in a year in which no blacks were killed at the hands of the police. On average, 27 days were spent when the police had not killed any black. In December 2019, more than 9 black civilians died in a single day.
However, blacks have been killed in police violence in most of the 50 US provinces. But conditions are worse in California, Florida, and Texas. In the last few years, the maximum number of people died in these provinces due to police firing.
The same condition in other provinces
Talking about other provinces of America, the situation is not very good there either. Between 2013 and 2019, 25 people lost their lives in police action in Washington. While many provinces including Louisiana, Illinois, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, and Georgia have also lost many blacks.

Although the situation here is a bit right
There are also some provinces of America where the situation is better for blacks. Not a single untoward incident occurred in six years in Montana, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, New Hamshire, Vermont. Apart from this, there are some other provinces where such incidents have reduced considerably.
