It’s Culture. Not Color.

I searched “how many #blacks are in #jail compared to whites?” Because I honestly wanted to know and found this:
“The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 #AfricanAmerican men and 1 in every 36 #Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men. 2. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to #prison in their lifetime.”
Why is this? I will argue it is because of culture. Not color. The black culture today idolizes #criminals and doing #drugs. If they go back to their #culture in the #fifties, the culture that #honored the #family, that strived to be the best workers, that desired to be an honorable human being they will see these #stats radically #change.
