According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 910,200 of the men and women behind bars last year were black, 777,500 were white and 395,400 were Hispanic.



In 1997, about 9 percent of the black population in the U.S. was under some form of correctional supervision compared to 2 percent of the white population and over 1 percent of other races.



Blacks were two times more likely than Hispanics and five times more likely than whites to be in jail.



But those numbers count only those who were jailed for a crime. In 2003, more than twice as many whites as blacks were arrested and charged with a crime, according to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports.



Of 9.5 million offenses charged, 6.7 million whites were arrested, compared to 2.5 million blacks.



The most common crimes were drug abuse violations, resulting in arrest of 770,430 whites and 381,006 blacks.



Whites were far more likely to be arrested driving under the influence. Of 998,035 total offenses, 877,810 of those arrested where whites.



Blacks, meanwhile, were more than twice as likely as whites to be arrested for gambling, 5,153 to 1,964.



And while blacks comprise about 13 percent of the population, they were charged with most of the robberies, 40,993 compared to 33,070 for whites, and nearly as many homicides--4,395 black and 4,454 white.



Whites outnumbered blacks about 2-1 in arrests for other crimes, including rape (11,766-6,114), aggravated assault (203,076-103,697), burglary (143,889-103,697) and larcey/theft (556,215-233,806.)



Whites also were most often arrested for motor vehicle theft, arson, other assaults, fraud, embezzlement, dealing in stolen property, vandalism, weapons charges, prostitution, sex offenses, crimes against families and children, liquor laws, drunkenness, disorderly conduct, vagrancy, curfew and loitering, suspicion, as runaways and all other offenses not including traffic.

I lived in both sides of poverty then upper middle class and one thing I saw was that minorities commit crimes out of desperation and whites out of pleasure. If you live in ghetto everyday is a challenge to eat,live,and make it. When you live in comfort have a car,money,career in the horizon ,then commit crimes it's mind sickness. The reason blacks and minorities are jailed more is they don't have the funds to defend themselves. I saw first hand friends that are white commit the same crime as minority friends but got off because of family money to defend them, while minorities went to jail for the same crime. Sad but we have come far from 30 yrs ago.

I Respect your opinion! Like most who can be wrong when a decision made by a person who did not have the sight of experiencing the facts of being held back by look,character,and belief. Along with all rights exposed to a confinement of liberty along with claiming constitutional rights one did not follow. but argues are taken away now for what THEY DO NOT LIKE IN CURRENT EVENTS! Irish immigrated here they had hatred and living in ghettos,Italians,Jews,Hispanic ,and so on. even the native Americans are considered ruthless for defending the homeland they lived on for thousands of years by there suppressor who arrived and took all for greed. completing my statement from what I see now is Tea Partiers and whites complaining of crap that they have no right to. Are whites being hung in the streets,not getting jobs for the color,restricted from what they want to spend on material bs, and profiled? understanding history with an unbias mind is the greatest awakening one receives! hope all the best for you and we can all share the earth which we arrived and depart the same. unite not divide!!!
