" At a time when the killing of unarmed African Americans by police has given birth to the Black Lives Matter movement, Stand Your Ground critics point to racial fear and bias in the law’s implementation, with a particular appeal to white jurors. "
" In states with Stand Your Ground laws, justifiable homicides have increased 85%, and the shooting of a black person by a white person is deemed justifiable 17% of the time. Meanwhile, the shooting of whites by blacks is found justifiable in only 1% of cases. "
