Interesting. I thought that illegal Mexicans made up 85% of the prison population. (insert official Blade Forums sarcasm warning here) Of course, as sad as this fact may be, you have to ask the question of how many of these people in prison actually did what they were accused of? There are a lot of people in jail because they could not afford a good enough attorney to get a proper plea bargain, but most of them did, in fact, break the law. Then you must ask who is to blame? WHY are blacks incarcerated at a rate that is 4 times as high as others and at higher rates than say Hispanics, who have experienced discrimination and are also disproportionately poor in many parts of the country? What have other non-blacks allegedly done to cause that? In others words, there is some kind of socio-legal issue here, but precisely what is it and what the the root cause?
