“Here’s a pretty astonishing chart on the skyrocketing number of arrests of black Americans for nonviolent drug crimes. Brookings’ Jonathan Rothwell lays it out:
Arrest data show a striking trend: arrests of blacks have fallen for violent and property crimes, but soared for drug related crimes. As of 2011, drug crimes comprised 14 percent of all arrests and a miscellaneous category that includes “drug paraphernalia” possession comprised an additional 31 percent of all arrests. Just 6 percent and 14 percent of arrests were for violent and property crimes, respectively.
Even more surprising is what gets left out of the chart: Blacks are far more likely to be arrested for selling or possessing drugs than whites, even though whites use drugs at the same rate. And whites are actually more likely to sell drugs….”
This actually falls in line with what former New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s own stop-and-frisk statistics revealed:
Even though blacks and Latinos were stopped and frisked at a rate NINE TIMES the number of white people that were stopped and frisked, white people were MORE LIKELY to be carrying drugs, weapons, and other contraband.
Bloomberg’s reaction to this information was mind-boggling, but not surprising in a white supremacist society:
“We need to be stopping more blacks and Latinos.”
It would be comical were it not so tragic.
So the information above is only enlightening to those who have their faces covered by the American flag.
