The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Texas and the Johns Hopkins University, with the help of the Justice Department and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
The report found that, over the course of a year, white police officers were more likely to shoot unarmed Black people than their Black counterparts.
This was true across the board, from people being shot in the back or in a car, to people being killed at the hands of police.
According to the study, white officers also shot more unarmed Black men than their counterparts, as well as more people of color, including Black people.
According to a statement released by the Justice Dept. on Wednesday, the findings suggest that police killings of Black people are disproportionately the result of race-related reasons.
The department is currently in the process of reviewing its policies and training for police departments.
In a statement, the NAACP said it hopes the report will help law enforcement officers make decisions based on “the evidence, not stereotypes, and in the name of fairness and fairness.”
