    Many black americans are psychopath so they have no emotions to stop them from doing anything at all. Black female slaves being raped by psychopath celtic males did  a lot to make black americans psychology psychopath.

    Could it be they commit more crimes?

    Because of poverty, and the way the criminal justice system is rigged for the rich and white. Because if you do not have a private attorney, you are up shlt creek because the public defenders have way too many clients and are not paid as well. How to fix the issue needs to be discussed. Also these criminal justice systems in certain states are set up to make profits off of tickets, fines and other fees that these poor people of every race cannot afford.  I think that the fines should be replaced with work, they can work off fines. Also the amounts of fines should be looked at on a scale of income. What sense does it make fining someone 10,000 dollars and them unable to meet the large monthly payments and warrants issued, jail time, all at the expense of the taxpayer. Every case is different but there are way way too many Americans in jail costing more than 100 billion a year. It is an industry. We need to get to the levels of the rest of the western world. We have more people in jail than China and India and they have 30 times the people we do. We can't fix this country without the rule of law and I'm voting Biden. And the 1st thing to restore the will of law is to put Trump and much of his higher ups in prison.

    Although today's liberal society will refuse to admit it, the reason is that Blacks commit more violent crimes than most White people.

    Source(s): Source 1 - - 11:00PM news on any TV when the description or photo of the suspect is shown.

    Because 90% of the police are arresting people in black neighborhoods.

    Anyone who has studied the criminal justice system in the U.S. knows it's two-tiered.  Wealthy whites almost always walk or receive a slap on the wrist.  The impoverished Black people go to prison.  It's known as systemic racism.

    Because they are disproportionately prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to prison over any other race in the US.

    Because 40% of the blacks are criminals that didn't get away with the crime they committed.

    they are uncouth thugs that would rather commit crimes than get a job

    Because they are disproportionately involved in violent crime, like how Asians are disproportionately not involved in violent crime and so don't get imprisoned.
