    Cities Exploiting Black People To Fund Deficits

    Published on Jul 16, 2017

    Cities are funding their deficits by targeting the least powerful. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.


    interesting discussion.

    More about the study.
    If you want to stop police from disproportionately ticketing black communities, a recent study has one potential answer: Elect more black people to local government.

    The study, by political science researchers Michael Sances of the University of Memphis and Hye Young You of Vanderbilt University, had two major findings.

    Using data from more than 9,000 cities, the researchers first found that cities with larger black populations rely more on fines and court fees to raise revenue. The average collection was about $8 per person for all cities that get at least some revenue from fines and fees, but that rose to as much as $20 per person in the cities with the highest black populations. The findings persisted even after controlling for other factors, such as differences in crime rates and the size of cities.
