In my opinion, to deny that there is institutionalized, deeply ingrained racism against people of color in America is pure lunacy. Given the overwhelming evidence in support of its existence, the only reason to argue against it is if one has a deep, if unadmitted, belief that the race in question is in fact inferior and worthy of special reproach.

The fact that blacks are arrested and imprisoned at a higher rate than other races suggests to me that blacks simply commit more crimes. It isn't evidence of racism unless you can demonstrate that black people are not committing crimes at a higher rate.
