"Racial prejudice against African Americans has been the leading cause of high incarceration rates amongst the African American community. Within the United States, the census reported that African Americans make up about 17.9 percent of the population, with one-third of the people making up the incarcerated population in America."

"Race ethnicity and crime are bound together in American society. It is impossible to discuss policing, sentencing, the death penalty or employment in the criminal Justice system without confronting issues of race, ethnicities, and disparities that exist throughout the system."

"There are different kinds of discrimination: systematic, individual, and contextual. The system is characterized by contextual discrimination. Racial minorities are treated more hardy than whites at some stage of the criminal Justice process. For example the decision to seek or impose the death penalty."
