“[O]n average, Black men receive sentences that are 19% longer than those of White men. And by the way, that’s for the same exact crimes. And that’s after considering such variables as criminal history, age, and education.” – p. 181 of THE NEW PLANTATION: LESSONS FROM RIKERS ISLAND (https://www.deerbrookeditions.com/the-new-plantation-lessons-from-rikers-island/)
