Answer should include (1) reference to the possibility that police may target people of a certain race or ethnic group (e.g., the "driving while black" phenomenon), (2) that young African-American males may engage in more violent felony offenses and continue offending behavior for a longer duration, and (3) the war on drugs has worsened racial disparity.
