how much different though? would black people still outnumber everyone else?

my point is that i believe they would, due to social/socioeconomic factors at play here in this fine country of ours.

black people would still commit more crimes on average than other races, and the racist justice system would still put them away in larger numbers and for lesser offenses than other races. if we think the fucked up drug policy is the only thing influencing such large numbers of black in prison i think the problem and the root of the problem is far far deeper than just that.
