As Black Lives Matter protests continue in cities around the world, America has taken center stage in the fight against systematic injustice and police violence.

Just how big is the problem? Between 2013 and 2019, American police killed over 7,500 people. 99% of those deaths resulted in no charges against police. Of those killed, nearly a quarter are Black, even though they make up only 13% of the population and are more likely to be unarmed when killed than whites or Hispanics.
