What about the other .012 hispanics…did they survive?

The Left continues to tear up the statistical playing field and the media does nothing to thwart the mathematical abominations they practice in order to make their Identitatrian agenda come to fruition along with the moaning that it enables.

CNN (proud purveyor of dubious statistical methods) headlines us with a tantalizing, “An estimated 2,600 Latinos were killed by police or in custody in the past six years, preliminary report says.

Wow. Big numeros!

But when dealing with the MSM’s quasi-analytical hyperbole, one must always read the fine print.

While the true scope of the impact of police brutality is difficult to quantify, a new report indicates that more than 2,600 Latinos were killed by police or died while in custody in recent years.

In other words, the data doesn’t quite convey the appropriate Woke factor to an adequate degree that would warrant zealous consternation, so we’ll redefine the data.

The report released Thursday by UnidosUS in partnership with a group of researchers, scholars, activists and family members of Latinos killed by police, indicates that deaths of people of color are severely undercounted and much more needs to be done to produce an accurate database that collects ethnicity information.

As part of its initial effort and awareness of the limitations of its method, the newly formed group, the Raza Database Project, analyzed eight national databases that track police killings and use a combination of news reports and public records. Researchers took a closer look at entries that were identified as “White,” “Other,” or “Unknown” and compared the names to the surname datasets from the 2010 US Census to spot any individuals who may have been misidentified.

The curse of hispanichood. We are nebulous in racial composition and make the perfect fodder to doctor up any opportunistic agenda.

Between 2014 and May 9 of this year, there were a total of 15,085 people who died in police custody or were killed in encounters with officers, according to the report.

After the group’s analysis, the number of Latinos increased about 24% from 2,139 to 2,653, the report states.

The number of deaths of Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders and Native Americans also increased significantly

So ethnic contortions and re-wielding of family surnames bought an additional 514 deaths that the Identitariat absorbed greedily into its victim narrative.

The group noted the numbers likely still undercount Latinos and other people of color because they may not have surnames of Hispanic origin.

In recent years, a number of activists and media outlets have taken it upon themselves to collect data of police violence because there is no federal database of information.

But they have found that law enforcement agencies often lump individuals into broader racial categories and not ethnicities.

“There’s no standardization of how people are labeled and there’s no centralization,” said Rodriguez, who is also an author and former associate professor at the University of Arizona. “All of these groups are doing the government’s work.”

Interesting take on the matter. So if the police are killing hispanics who don’t have a Spanish surname, how about it if they kill blacks and whites who do?  Given the vast diversity of hispanics, this hypothetical is likely.

“There’s no standardization of how people are labeled and there’s no centralization,” said Rodriguez, who is also an author and former associate professor at the University of Arizona. “All of these groups are doing the government’s work.”

If they are trying to prove hispanics are being singled out for police malfeasance, shouldn’t the only qualifier be that they look hispanic, whatever that means? If the cops stop someone who looks hispanic but they learn he has the name Joe Smith during their street investigation and then release him because of that, how do we quantify it, or is that even a thing?

This complex racial tracking reverse algorithm seems to imply that surname trumps phenotype.

Because I’m a numbers-oriented guy, I ran this time span search.

98 per day

If we do the maths, this reduces to .988 dead hispanics per day, between 2014 and May, 2021, who have succumbed to the cruel, tyrannical hands of the law.  Some of the hispanics were whiter, blacker and browner.  Some were more hispanic than others;  perhaps the closer to hispanic, the closer to absolute 1.0.
