Racial Gap in Men’s Sentencing

Racial Gap in Men’s Sentencing

“Prison sentences of black men were nearly 20% longer than those of white men for similar crimes in recent years, an analysis by the U.S. Sentencing Commission found.”

See! People just need to stop talking about race. So when that judge decides how to sentence someone, he’ll have no idea that the person he’s sentencing is black or white because no one told him. If we don’t talk about subconscious, systematic racism, laws and behaviors…things will just fix themselves.

(How did such a stupid idea get traction?)
