So the whole US justice system is racist? Or could it be that the 4% just commit a shit load of crimes? In the area I live, I am the minority by a long shot. In this area blacks commit crimes at an insane rate, as if it were a reality show competition. Is it racist to lock them up because they commit a crime while being black? I am sorry the numbers look that way but in this community, those numbers make sense.
