Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

The point of no return: Blacks and whites live in different worlds when it comes to perceptions of the criminal justice system

 PressTV - Poll: US whites perceive racial issues different from blacks
According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll released on Saturday, only 1 in 10 African Americans says blacks and other minorities receive equal treatment with whites in the criminal justice system.
Only about 2 in 10 say they are confident that the police treats whites and blacks equally, whether or not they have committed a crime.
In great contrast, almost half of all white Americans believe that races are treated equally in the justice system and 6 in 10 have confidence that police treats both equally.

On racial issues, America is divided both black and white and red and blue - The Washington Post
Blacks and whites live in different worlds when it comes to perceptions of the criminal justice system and the role that police play in society. But divisions within the white community are almost as stark, with opinions heavily shaped by partisan identification and ideology, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The overall findings underscore the depth of distrust among a sizable majority of African Americans toward the police, as well as doubts about the treatment of blacks following decisions not to prosecute officers in the killings of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Mo., and New York City.
