Drugs- White America Does the Crime, Black America Does the Time

quote:

Nearly 20 percent of whites have used cocaine, compared with 10 percent of blacks and Latinos, according to a 2011 survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration -- the most recent data available.

Higher percentages of whites have also tried hallucinogens, marijuana, pain relievers like OxyContin, and stimulants like methamphetamine, according to the survey. Crack is more popular among blacks than whites, but not by much.

Still, blacks are arrested for drug possession more than three times as often as whites, according to a 2009 report from the advocacy group Human Rights Watch.

Of the 225,242 people who were serving time in state prisons for drug offenses in 2011, blacks made up 45 percent and whites comprised just 30 percent, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.


Say it ain't so, Joe

Is it possible that one race has a perception that they won't be judged so they don't hide, while the others do?

I think most of the violence is related to the distribution of the drugs, but I agree with your bigger point.

I'm calling absolute bull shite on both fronts. I'm willing to bet that it's over 30% for whites, blacks, and latinos easily. These are just the ones admitting to it.

Both of these numbers seem EXTREMELY high. 1/5th of the population has done cocaine?

I'd say at least. I'd say it's over 30.
