America is becoming more and more racist
America isn't becoming any more racist but racists in America are becoming more and more vocal
America is no more or less racist today that it has ever been
America is not a racist country and never has been
Oh lord, not this "black man sentence longer" **** again.
Does your little data that you used to make this comment take into consideration the past criminal conviction record of both individuals as well?
In most places in the world, there are levels of sentencing depending on how many prior convictions a person has had. Your white and black man may have committed the same crime, but there are a lot of factors which may determine the length of the sentence.
1. Sentencing Level (prior conviction record).
2. Mitigating circumstances.
3. Aggravating factors.
Unless you can show me that said black and white man had the EXACT same of all of these, then blow off with your crybaby longer sentencing crap, im tired of hearing these generalizations from people who skew numbers to get the desired result.

There is a special place in hell for those who care only about themselves.
PS Cain actually made some good points. I don't think it is overwhelmingly racist now days. Allot more plays into it than just race.

No Lives Matter
You know how fewer black men could get locked up? They could stop committing crimes.
*Having said this, I still believe that black men face incredibly disparate treatment in America than whites do, generally, in society, and are more likely to experience poverty and social dysfunction as children, which plays a role in offending.

There is still some equalization that needs to occur in federal sentencing for drug crimes. For instance, treating crack offenses differently than powder cocaine offenses.
interestingly that stuff is never mentioned when the left screams about hate crimes. We all know about those three rednecked racists who dragged that black man to death or the schmucks who beat a gay Matthew Shepherd to death but horrendous black on white crimes (one in tennessee made even hardened criminal investigators sick) rarely get any press.
Is it due to the liberal racism of figuring when whites do it it is worse because they are expected to be "more civilized"
(sort of like american liberals damning South African fascist racists while excusing the far worse genocidal black dicatators like Amin and Macias)
The racists in America are becoming more vocal.
But the Democrats still have the right to do that as much as they want. Some of us, who aren't Democrats, still support the First Amendment.
