Race Inequality in America by Graph, From Crime Sentencing to Income

So if an African-American male had fired ten shots into the SUV of some white suburban kids playing their music too loud, killing one of them, I think we all know there would have been a murder conviction and almost certainly a death penalty imposed.

In case of conviction for murder, African-Americans are 38% more likely to be handed the death penalty than members of other racial groupings.

88% of African-Americans in a 2013 Pew poll said that there was “a lot” (46%) or “some” (42% ) discrimination against them.

Average household net worth of whites: $110,000.

Average household net worth of African-Americans:  $5000

1 in every 15 African American men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men
