Racial Inequality in the Criminal Justice System

In this 2010 video, Prof. Daniel D’Amico argues that one of the reasons why minorities are grossly overrepresented in U.S. prisons may lie with the criminal …


  1. Hey folks!
    In light of current events, we republished this 2010 video as it became relevant again. To provide the audience with context, Prof. D'Amico added a bit of extra content. You can find it in the updated description or in his original comment below.

  2. As a white man ive always felt extremely guilty for finding a job after graduating high school and working everyday since and never being forced to spend a day in prison

  3. IM A MYSTERY. What did I do to receive this power, what infliction have I suffered to have a blessing that that allows me to hold the Rod of Moses over the Entire Earth, Is it to Hard to see the Lucre that this Judicial system is engaged in; how can a Judge think him self to be greater than God Almighty, can you Maim a Man and not be Recompensed, Can you Profane the Name of a Righteous man without him reaching out to his Sword. Can you not understand that if you Turn an Israelite into your enemy you can not escape Deuteronomy 30.7. Turn the World into my enemy and witness every curse pronounced on Mt. Ebal fall upon everyone who profanes the Idea of who I am. I am asking for Restitution, I want to be exonerated; I want the Obstruction that is being provoked on my name by this Nation to be Abolished or I will set the same example on your nation that Moses set on the land of Egypt, then you will know that I am Yahweh the Almighty God of Jacob who Reeks Havoc on the entire Earth. Selah.

    Here I Am!!
    Hosea 3.4 & 5
    For the children of Israel shall live many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice, and without sacred stone, and without ephod or idols. 5Afterward the children of Israel shall return, and seek Yahweh their God, and David their king, and shall come with trembling to Yahweh and to his blessings in the last days.

    Deuteronomy 33.13-17
    Of Joseph he said. " His Land is blessed by Yahweh, for the precious things of the heavens, for the dew, for the deep that couches beneath.
    14. for the precious things of the fruits of the sun, for the precious things of the growth of the moons,
    15. for the chief things of the ancient mountains, for the precious things of the everlasting hills,
    16. for the precious things of the earth and its fullness, the good will of him who lived in the bush. Let [the blessing] come on the head of Joseph, On the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.
    17. The firstborn of his herd, majesty is his. His horns are the horns of the Wild Ox. With them he shall push the peoples all of them, [even] the ends of the earth: They are the ten thousands of Ephraim. They are the Thousands of Manasseh."

    Hosea 4.8
    They feed on the sin of my people, and set their heart on their iniquity.

    Hosea 5.14
    For I will be to Ephraim like a lion, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I myself will tear in pieces and go away. I will carry off, and there will be no one to deliver.

    Hosea 6.1
    "Come, and let us return to Yahweh; for he has torn us to pieces, and he will heal us; he has injured us, and he will bind up our wounds.
    3.Let us acknowledge Yahweh. Let us press on to know Yahweh. As surely as the sun rises, Yahweh will appear. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain that waters the earth."

    Deuteronomy 32.
    1. Give ear, you heavens, and I will speak. Let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
    2. My doctrine shall drop as the rain. My speech shall condense as the dew, as the small rain on the tender grass,
    as the showers on the herb.
    3. For I will proclaim the name of Yahweh. Ascribe greatness to our God!
    4. The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice: a God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is he.

    18. Of the Rock who became your father, you are unmindful, and have forgotten God who gave you birth.
    19. Yahweh saw [it], and abhorred [them], because of the provocation of his sons and his daughters.
    20. He said, " I will hide my face from them. I will see what their end shall be; for they are a very perverse generation, children in who is no faithfulness.
    21. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God. They have provoked me to anger with their vanities. I will move them to jealousy with those who are not a people. I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

    31. "For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

    40. For I lift up my hand to heaven, And say, As I live forever,
    41. if I whet my glittering sword, My hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to my adversaries, and will recompense those who hate me.
    42. I will make my arrows drunk with blood, My sword shall devour flesh with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the head of the leaders of the enemy."
    43. Rejoice, you nations, [with] his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants. He will render vengeance to his adversaries, And will make expiation for his land, for his people.

  4. It’s Anecdotal but when I look back the kids that I knew that came from very strict parents and very strict upbringings that taught personal responsibility are all predominantly doing very well. However the children from families that were raised in extremely liberal families that taught the government will take care of them and embedded in them a sense of entitlement are all doing very poorly or are in jail.

  5. The system so rigged because I was working in a store and then I kept getting robbed and they fire me and said I robbed it and then I was workikgn in another store and they kept hiring white drug dealers to run around with me and expose me to drugs

  6. “We will discuss the reasons behind racial inequality in the justice system”
    He then proceeds to ramble from an extremely left thinking point of view while stating 0 factual evidence and leaving out rap culture and gang violence as potential reasons for the excess of black people in jail.

  7. Easy stop committing criminal acts like rape murder and robbery. Before you can even begin to talk about racial inequality one has to look at the criminal element. The proportion of those who commit criminal acts versus all other races. One cannot simply paint a broad picture claiming inequality without conducting a study of crime rates within racial groups. The truth lies in the actions of others not simply race – Inequality cannot simply be expressed by who is in jail but by the criminal acts they performed. Narcotics are the destroyer of a society but not the exclusive reason why more of one race is in prison. Tell you what ride along with the police for just two weeks in the inner city and tell me about racial injustice.


  9. This video is just a bunch of bs assumptions. Black people are in prison more because of father abscence. It starts in the homes. Watch denzel washington. When kids get into contact with the police it's already too late. Legislation makes father abscense financially more attractive which should change. People should focus on finding solutions instead of playing the blame game and stop listening to politics trying to move you away from the actual problems. And I do believe that it's difficult for groups to change this situation. Schools are funded by neighborhoods, if the neighborhood is bad, so is your school. Make education affordable and stop the governments from moving money into the hands of the 1%. It's time to forget colors and unite as we are all humans!

  10. I have a stronger feeling that Black people will not be oppressed when white people and SJW's finally stop saying they are oppressed. Because in 2021, we are all free and there is no oppresion.
