2. That is a huge problem in this country.


I forget what the statistics are, but they are inapproriately high for a young black man (based on total size of population) to end up in prison. It is hard to believe racism is not involved.

For that matter - how can we claim to lead the 'free world' when we incarcerate MORE of our citizens than Communits China or Russia (which has a czar (Putin) not elected, running the country)?
