African American Youth Are Treated Differently By the Juvenile Justice System

  • Drugs. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, among youths aged 12 to 17, the rate of current illicit drug use was 11.1 % among whites, and 9.3% among African Americans. [5] In a previous year, the same survey found that white youth aged 12 to17 are more than a third more likely to have sold drugs than African American youth. [6] The Monitoring the Future Survey of high school seniors shows that white students annually use cocaine at 4.6 times the rate of African Americans students, use crack cocaine at 1.5 times the rate of African Americans students, and use heroin at the same rate of African Americans students, and that white youth report annual use of marijuana at a rate 46% higher than African American youth. [7] However African American youth are arrested for drug offenses at about twice the rate (African American 314 per 100,000, white 175 per 100,000) times that of whites, [8] and African American youth represent nearly half (48%) of all the youth incarcerated for a drug offense in the juvenile justice system. [9]

  • Weapons. According to the Center on Disease Control’s annual Youth Risk Behavior Survey, in 2001 whites and African Americans reported similar rates of carrying a weapon (whites 17.9%, African Americans 15.2%), and similar rates of carrying a gun (whites 5.5%, and African Americans, 6.5%). [10] African American youth represent 32% of all weapons arrests, and were arrested for weapons offenses at a rate twice that of whites (69 per 100,000, versus 30 per 100,000). [11]

  • Assault. According to the Center on Disease Control’s annual Youth Risk Behavior Survey, African Americans report being in a physical fight at a similar rate (36.5%, versus 32.5% for whites), but were arrested for aggravated assault at a rate nearly three times that of whites (137 per 100,000, versus 48 per 100,000).

▶ Invasion of the Data Snatchers

Oh, oh!

Rise Up Times

New technologies are making it easier for private companies and the government to learn about everything we do – in our homes, in our cars, in stores, and within our communities. As they collect vast amounts of data about us, things are getting truly spooky!

Data snatchers?? They are NOT science fiction. And they’re closer than you think.

New technologies are making it easier for private companies and the government to learn about everything we do – in our homes, in our cars, in stores, and within our communities. As they collect vast amounts of data about us, things are getting truly spooky!

Our video might make you laugh, but a future without any privacy is just scary.

Isn’t it time we regained control over our personal information?

A future without any privacy is just scary. And privacy is not the only thing at stake when everything we say, everywhere…

Investigator Blames Child’s Death On Violent ‘Black Culture’

Black America Web

Georgia county investigator David Daniel (pictured) resigned this week after a Facebook, blaming the death of a 1-year-old Rodrickus Robinson on violent “Black culture,” according to Raw Story.

Robinson died over the weekend, after he was caught in the crossfire of a gunfight in his Atlanta, Ga., neighborhood. The shooting reportedly prompted Clayton County Investigator Daniel to rail against the Black community during a visit to the Facebook page of WSB-TV.

Raw Story reports:

“Violence with guns is unfortunately a part of the Black culture and will never get better until the government stops supporting them and they are taught to work for what they get and not take from others,” he wrote.

Several Facebook commenters lashed out by calling the remarks “racist.”

“It had nothing to do with the child when it should have been all about the child,” Stephanie Morganexplained to WSB-TV.

The report…
