Skip to comments.Statistics: 49% of black men arrested by age 23 (but only 16% of black women)

The numbers come from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and looked at 9,000 people.
The research followed all races of men from the time they were 12-16 years old until they were adults.
The findings say 49% of black men had been arrested by the time they were 23. Hispanic men were next with a 44% arrest rate. 38% of white men reported they had spent time behind bars.
The crimes covered everything from assault to underage drinking with minor traffic arrests not factored in.
The numbers told a very different story when it came to women.
20% of white females say they had been in the pokey by age 23. Hispanic women were next at 18% and black women third at 16%.

I’m probably gonna get in a lot of trouble with his comment, but I suspect that judges are loathe to imprison young black and hispanic females for minor crimes if they either have young children and/or are pregnant..
38% of white men?
i am not buying it...
That good ole thug coulture. What a way to live. One way or another they are on the dole.
9,000 people? Not where i live. Must be 9,000 people from Detroit.

Racist justice system?

Oh the pain.
No problem here. I myself was thinking they don’t have as much opportunity to even be in a bad situation, for those reasons.

They would be measuring those who spent even a night in county. Most people, who go to jail, go over unpaid fines or minor charges.
the only answer is to arrest 49% of white men before age 23.

“49% of black men arrested by age 23”
I’m suspicious of headlines like this, seeing them as a push to restore felon voting rights. I want to know how many black men are CONVICTED by age 23, and what they are convicted of.
Many young men today have a DUI on their records that serves to diminish, if not destroy, their young lives and their abilities to provide for their children.
Thanks a pile, MADD Moms!
Thank goodness we have an all-powerful government with limitless resources to step in and provide for these mothers and children.
Thank you, Lyndon Johnson.

Stalin must be envy.
Very good advice...
I wonder if Jim understands that this could very well be a reply to any claims of “disparate impact” in ANY aspect of life...
I’m not buying it either. I just tried to figure out if I know ANY white guy who spent a night in prison...and I can only think of one guy who MIGHT have. I don’t know nearly as many black guys well enough to know, but at 55, I’ve known a LOT of white guys over the years.
38% sound completely bogus to me.
