Here is a strange question: If blacks have higher testosterone levels (10-20% higher) and blacks committ over 50% of the violent crimes...and higher testosterone is linked to higher propensities to crime...should they be punished less? These statisitcs are fascinating, if they are correct...but what implications can we draw for society from them? And what is the solution to "racial inequities" and "racial inequalities" if these inequalities are rooted in biology and not oppressive power structures?

No. If you do the crime, you do the time. No exceptions. Get the criminals off the street. The three strikes approach has been exceptionally effective in reducing crime by removing the repeat offenders from the streets.
