    Yes it is true. There are about 13% black people in the United States and in jails blacks compensate for about 40%.
    We just need to get blacks out of our countries.

    No, but there is a higher percentage of blacks based on percentage of blacks in America.. So yes and no.

    is this compared to population ratio? Blacks are 13% of population. What's the percentage of incarcerated?

    It is in comparison of population, but across the board.. there are not more blacks in jail than whites..

    Quintessential and I hashed this out like a year and a half ago. I thought there were but I was wrong after much debate and number throwing. I see where it comes from though. It is disproportionately high.
