It would be better if we looked into why there is a disparity. (make up of the population vs the make up of the prison population) The disparity has nothing to do with anything inherent in black people . (for example) Black people are not born with some trait that will lead them to a path of crime. We need to understand the root cause and deal with the problem there not adjust laws so the prison population gets adjusted. If a particular group happens to be committing a particular crime more than other groups perhaps we need to understand why. For example, if a particular group commits murder more than their percentage of the population we should not make murder legal; we should investigate why they are committing these crimes. What can we do to decrease that crime (less people murdered) not just arrest fewer or make murder legal.
