More Work Needed on Racial Arrest Disparity

After it was revealed that a larger than normal percentage of African-Americans were being arrested and incarcerated in the United States, efforts were made to rectify this issue. A push to increase the number of Caucasians arrested included trying to recruit more whites into criminal activity. Noting that this initiative was largely ineffectual, new efforts are now being discussed which would include trying to sway people of color away from criminal activities. Hopefully this will have a more positive outcome.
