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

White men make up 79% of elected prosecutors in US, study says

White Americans make up 95% of elected prosecutors across the US,
according to a study that cites the non-indictments of white police
officers in the high-profile deaths of unarmed black men as the
“shocking” reality of a disproportionate and non-diverse criminal
justice system that relies on prosecutorial power.


The study, from the San Francisco-based Women’s Donor Network, also
found that that just 17% of elected prosecutors in the US are women –
and just 1% are women of color.


The combination of these racial and gender disparities means that
white men, who represent 31% of the population, hold 79% of the 2,437
elected prosecutors in the country at a time when growing attention to
issues of misrepresentation in the criminal justice system has led to
calls for reform. | The Guardian
