The race rates in prison are because of institutional racism, not because any people of color deserve to be there more than their white counterparts. 

I'm white and my boyfriend is black. I drive way more recklessly than him, and smoke weed while I drive. I've been pulled over/arrested NEVER. When he's driving, we get pulled over all the fucking time. For nothing. For brake lights that are absolutely fine. For running green lights. 

If a group in power sees other groups any kind of way, then those people will be treated that way, whether they are or not. Your perceptions, in fact, are exactly the fucking problem.
