Bad things happen in many places, for many different reasons.

But to ignore that 70% of prisoners in the United States are non-whites in our "correctional" facilities (despite having much lower percentages of the total population). And to ignore that 95% of all of those killed by our wars are non-white, is to ignore institutionalized racism.

It is not to say that "white folks" are causing it. They/we are not. But it is clear that their is selectivity by those who decide as far as who gets punished.

The US Government basically imprisons and murders countless brown people a day.
