    At some point, they were going to run out of blacks.

    Well obviously we're gonna' have to have some sort of Drug Crime Affirmative Action. We'll just convict more Blacks than Whites until the numbers are even. Maybe we can bus some White Prisoners to Historically Black Prisons so we can achieve Integration?

    Seriously, shouldn't our Prisons "Look Like America"?

    Twenty years ago an organizational meeting of the nation's black judges could have been held in the back of a single bus. Today it would take a small fleet of Greyhounds. To celebrate that growth, and what it means to the administration of justice, half of the nation's 269 black judges met in Atlanta this month to establish the Judicial Council of the predominantly black National Bar Association.

    The event was more than ceremonial. Black judges know that they have become a force in the legal community, and they mean to make the most of it. Specifically, they want the white-dominated judicial system to become more responsive to blacks and to the poor, and they are not at all reticent with their suggestions for bringing that about.

    Defendant's Language. Jury selection is one of their special concerns. Said Baltimore Judge Joseph C. Howard: "We found there were professional [white] jurors serving six and eight times a year." As a result of Howard's prodding, black representation on petit juries in Baltimore has moved from 5% to 50%. Judge Howard and three black colleagues have also led a movement to reform the bail system. Today three times as many Baltimore defendants are released on their own recognizance as three years ago.

    The Black Judges - TIME

    It means the government finally started to make it a war on drugs and not a war on black people.

    Wonderful. Black criminals freed to prey on whites thanks to their co-ethnics on the bench.

    We shall overcome!

    the study suggests that drug 'crimes' are being targeted, not the color of offenders.

    How many black people are in jail who weren't caught with drugs? I missed the news report about innocent black people being thrown in jail on trumped up drug charges.
