Joshua, man oh man, I thought exactly the same when I read this if true. Just code for locking up more brown and black young males. White America (some) are really fighting hard to try and prevent that unstoppable demographic shift. It’s the opioid overdose epidemic which is really the problem these days and that should be more about “prevention” than anything else; and even with that, there’s a racial divide.
The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by the year 2042 U.S. residents who identify themselves as Hispanic, black, Asian, American Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander will together outnumber non-Hispanic whites, meaning that ethnic and racial minorities will comprise a majority of the nation’s population. This has been called a “watershed moment” that shows us just how multicultural we have become.
