Racial Discrimination and Criminal Justice
The Black Lives Matter movement has shined a light on the frequently unequal treatment of African Americans by the U.S. justice system. This has led to some adverse reactions, including the protest slogans All Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter. The viewpoints in this volume examine the truths regarding the justice system and people of color in the United States. Do the police have a problem when it comes to racial discrimination? Is the court system biased against people of color? Can gang violence be curbed without racial profiling? Experts from the field offer very different perspectives on this important topic.
