29. LOL. Gungeon Math

Removing the pending cases:

White shooter / white victim. Odds of conviction ~ 44%
White shooter / black victim. Odds of conviction ~ 14%

Black shooter / white victim. Odds of conviction ~33%
Black shooter / black victim. Odds of conviction ~27%

So, a white shooter is over 3 times as likely to get off if the person they kill is black
A black shooter is also less likely to be convicted if the victim is also black.

Bottom line. In both cases, it is exactly as I posted. If the victim is black, there is higher chance of getting off.

And this is the part I love. You site statistics, and then when they don't support your argument - you claim they are not statistically significant enough to be meaningful. If the victim is black, a white shooter is still half as likely to be convicted than a black shooter.
