In addition, the show is interspersed with little factoids (I did not vet them all but the statistics are widely available). Just a few examples:
2.7 million Americans have a parent in prison.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime.
- According to the NAACP CRIMINAL JUSTICE fact SHEET:
- 5 times as many Whites are using drugs as African Americans, yet African Americans are sent to prison for drug offenses at 10 times the rate of Whites.
- African Americans are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of whites.
Saw cops bringing out a young white man in handcuffs. He looked a little like Harry Potter. I don't know what his offense was, but my guess is that he will never see the inside of a cell.
