A central claim of modern day Social Justice advocates is that the existence of disparities, is proof of discrimination.
By this metric, American police and the American workplace system are systemically, systematically, and fundamentally sexist (and ageist!).
An overwhelming majority of people shot and killed by police are male – over 95 percent. More than half of the victims are between 20 and 40 years old.

The real problem with police is two-fold. First, they are coercively funded via taxation, meaning they receive money from their involuntary customer base whether or not they are providing a quality service. Second, the system of Officer Supremacy means they have a right to give citizens orders, and the citizens have a legal obligation to obey them.
Bad news for workplace equality as well. According to Forbes,
[T]he huge difference in workplace fatalities between men and women, with 4,761 men dying on the job compared to 386 women in 2017. The fatality rate for men was about 10 times that of women: 5.7 per 100,000 vs. 0.6 per 100,000 for women.
It turns out, men have roughly 13 times the amount of testosterone that women do, making them more likely to commit acts of direct physical violence such as rape and murder. It also explains why they apply for jobs that entail more risk and result in higher compensation.
Please let us put to bed this evil, divisive myth that the existence of disparities in outcome is proof of unjust discrimination!
