25 Myths About Race and "Racism": Myth #4

Myth #4: Non-Whites Are Penalized More Harshly by the Justice System for the Same Crimes

To the contrary, most evidence points to the fact that Whites are held to a much higher standard regarding crime than any other group. Crime is so rampant in some non-White communities that “minor” infractions, like the possession of small amounts of drugs or possession of unregistered firearms, without a license, are routinely over-looked by law enforcement. “Crimes” that are routinely enforced in majority-White communities, like traffic violations and jay-walking, are unheard of in America's inner-cities. Entire categories of crimes, like “hate” crimes are selectively enforced, almost solely, against Whites, even though Whites are much more likely to be the victims of such crimes than the perpetrators of them. Jury nullification is so rampant in non-White communities (see the O.J. Simpson and Reginald Denny cases) that it is virtually impossible for prosecutors to gain a conviction against non-Whites if their victim is White. The recent dismissal of a case involving Black Panthers, caught on video engaging in voter intimidation, vividly demonstrates the unequal enforcement of the laws. The White population, of entire states, is under a form of consent degree (the Voting Rights Act) forcing them to divulge to the federal government any changes to their voting practices, in order to prevent them from “intimidating” non-White voters. And finally, perhaps the most egregious area, where Whites are discriminated against by the criminal justice system, is in the area of immigration. While non-Whites, from every nation on earth, are flooding into our nation in violation of our immigration law, it is only White Europeans that are routinely rounded-up and sent back to their countries of origin for simple violations like missing a check-in or overstaying their visas.
