Black Run America
What does the prison population as a whole look like in Black Run America?
Total – 1,548,700
Black = 597,100
Hispanic = 321,000
White = 530,200
Other = 100,400
As a casual observer, it looks black and brown to me.
I thought it would be a neat idea to compare per pupil spending on students with per prisoner spending on inmates in the seven states we have already examined: California, Arizona, Michigan, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Per Pupil Spending: $8,301
Per Prisoner Spending: $31,358
Other Highlights: 69.6 percent of TANF welfare users in California are Hispanics and African Americans.
African-Americans and Hispanics are responsible for 78.6 percent of the robbery, 71.4 percent of the rape, 73.8 percent of the homicides, 62.7 percent of the aggravated assaults, 62 percent of the burglary, 58.8 percent of the theft, 66.8 percent of motor vehicle theft, 65.2 percent of the forgery, 72.3 percent of the kidnapping, and 63.9 percent of the sex offenses in California.

In Black Run America, White and Asian taxpayers invest in the future of Hispanic and African-American criminals, not in public schools for their own children.
Last month, we also saw that White and Asian taxpayers spend more money on Hispanic and African-American children in per pupil spending in public schools than on their own children.
