Black Men Disproportionately Represented On Sex Offender Registries

This is common sense when you look at the justice system overall. I’ll also add every article I’ve seen where a judge was in trouble for not fully punishing someone for a sex crime, the perp has always been a white male.

Hi Gralphr
Yes! I was promised no jail but the prosecutor, a notoriously twisted woman, told the judge
that he should send a message that ‘middle aged white men can go to jail’.
Since she had caused a huge press outrage on a case similar to mine (I had 5 images) this guy had 40,000 same sentence, the judge was scared she’d do the same to him as she had done to the other judge in the previous case.
From what I saw in 10yrs probation, black guys were not involved in any child related crime but male on female which would give them a high rate in my opinion.

Open up the “registry” that covers Washington DC. It’s all black males!!! None of the “perfect” white politicians are on it.

A new way to fight the registry, it seems it is inherently racist as well. Should be sent to all black leaders and those fighting inequality. A discriminatory argument always is a good one in court.

I wish this article allowed comments. To be blunt, the registry is just plain government wasteful idiocy, no matter who is on it or what put them there.

@ kerry,

The registry is discriminatory, period. But you are correct – the discrimination against registrants really is akin to racism. It’s just based on registry status as opposed to skin.

@ Anonymous,

The reason the DC registry is all black males is because the population of DC is almost entirely black. The politicians, staff members, and government employees live in Maryland or Virginia for the most part, if they can afford it. I know when I went to the Pentagon a few years ago, active military members that worked there lived all the way over in Southern Virginia and northern North Carolina and had to take a train in every day. The cost of living was too high any closer. Ft. Meyer is nearby, but housing there is generally only available to the highest ranking generals and the highest enlisted person in the four services – the Sergeant major of the Army and his counterparts in the Navy, Marines, and Air Force. I don’t remember their titles.

As indicated above, I could care less about the race of registrants. Whether discrimination against them as registrants is in lieu of or addition to any discrimination based on skin is irrelevant – it’s just plain wrong. And to be clear, I don’t support discrimination against anyone under any circumstance.

So, could these studies be used to make similar laws, like we have done in ca regarding felonies as also racially discriminatory.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
