    Hey, just to be clear:  If you’re not a minority and you don’t have a lot of money and a prosecutor wants to put you in prison, you will be imprisoned.  Three guys from West Memphis, Arkansas can tell you all about that.  And note that a lot of minorities with money (Chuck D, Ice-T, etc.) helped correct that injustice.  

    The biggest factor in whether one goes to prison for any given offense is one’s income level, overwhelmingly so.  It’s a disgrace which shouldn’t take a back seat to any other form of institutionalized prejudice, ever.

    Racial tensions, sure (Crown Heights, Tawana Brawley, etc,) but NYC was hardly “decaying” any more by the late 80s.
