Brooklyn has a population of 1.2 million, and it has an elected representative in the city council.
It is a city that is, in theory, a place of opportunity for everyone.
But in practice, the city is one of the most segregated and hostile environments to be a person of color in the United States.
That’s according to research from The National Coalition of Anti-Discrimination Organizations.
And while we can debate the best approach to solving racism in America, we cannot deny that the current political climate in Brooklyn is a toxic environment for people of color, as evidenced by a recent survey from the organization.
Here are 10 facts about Brooklyn that will blow your mind and make you rethink the way you think about race.
Brooklyn is the only place in the country where black and Latino residents are the majority of the population.
The borough has about a quarter of its population (about 1.3 million people) as black or Latino.
In 2016, about 2.5 percent of Brooklyn’s population was African American or Latino, which is an increase of about 0.5 percentage points from the year before.
And according to a 2017 census, nearly half of the borough’s population is non-Hispanic white, a majority of which are in Brooklyn.
The majority of people who live in Brooklyn are of Asian descent.
The next most common race of people in Brooklyn: Black.
Black people are more likely to be shot by police than any other race.
Black men are three times more likely than white men to be killed by police.
The police are also the ones who are most likely to use deadly force against Black people.
The data also shows that Black people face the highest rates of murder, aggravated assault, robbery and aggravated burglary.
Black women also face the most violence, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
In addition, black people are three and a half times more than white people to be murdered by police, and one and a quarter times more to be arrested by police compared to the general population.
There are more police shootings per capita than anywhere else in the world.
The United States has more than 2,000 active police departments, but fewer than 400,000 officers are employed in the entire country.
This means that nearly a quarter-million people are on the police force in Brooklyn, and more than a million are in law enforcement.
That means that a black man is more likely be shot than a white man is to be stopped for a traffic violation.
This statistic was first discovered by journalist and author Jordan Peterson.
In fact, police officers shot and killed more people in the borough of Brooklyn in 2017 than in any other U.S. city.
The City Council has a black mayor.
In the past year, Mayor de Blasio has been elected by a margin of about 70 percent of the city’s registered voters.
He also has a majority-black city council, with six black members and two Hispanic.
In 2017, a quarter percent of all Brooklyn residents were Black, but about 7 percent were white.
This percentage has stayed stable in the past two years.
In 2018, Brooklyn was one of only seven cities in the U. S. that had fewer murders than murders per capita in 2017.
The rest of the country saw a rise in murders, with the number of people murdered rising by a whopping 26 percent.
Brooklyn’s residents are overwhelmingly poor.
A 2015 study by the Urban Institute showed that the median household income in Brooklyn was $44,959, while the median income in Manhattan was $57,078.
And the average household income per household in Brooklyn in 2018 was $26,945, or more than $40,000 less than the national average.
There is a high rate of unemployment among people of colour.
A 2016 study from the UBS Global Economic Indicators showed that Black unemployment rates in Brooklyn were twice the national rate of 8.4 percent.
This is even higher than the rate for non-white people.
And there are high levels of underemployment among people who have a college degree or a graduate degree, according the American Community Survey.
Black and Latino children are more than twice as likely as white children to experience poverty.
There were nearly 9,000 people of child poverty in Brooklyn as of 2016, compared to just under 5,000 white people of that age.
And a disproportionate number of children of color are black.
In New York City, Black children were twice as often as white kids to be living in poverty, and white children were just as likely to live in poverty.
Black adults are more economically stressed than white adults.
The average person in Brooklyn lived in poverty in 2016, with a median income of just $24,941.
And an even higher median income for Black people is about $41,000.
