Transcript of Race and Crime: The Fate of the Nation

Race and Crime in the Local Prison System:
The Fate of the Nation Inmate population
White: 88.6%
Black: 9.8%
Native American: 1%
Asian: 0.6%
The amount of white people in Vermont prisons has been on the decline for the past 19 years. The amount of black people has been on the increase. The racial compostitions in prisons is and has been for some time primarily caucasian.
