A new report on changes in disparities between Black and White imprisonment rates over the past two decades was released today by the Council on Criminal Justice, and it reveals a number of meaningful differences, including:
“Over the first two decades of the 21st century, the disparity in Black and White state imprisonment rates…fell 40%.”
“Disparity in drug imprisonment rates fell by 75%; that drop accounted for about half of the overall decrease in the Black-White imprisonment rate disparity.”
“The Black-White disparity in prison admission rates declined, while disparity in length of stay in prison increased.”
