Black males ages 25-29: 11,695 per 100,000. (That's 11.7% of Black men in their late 20s.) (Source).
Anyway, this discussion of laws created to basically continue to enslave mostly black men "after slavery" made me think of a point that i have made before about people being criminalized out of a political/economic motivation- specifically undocumented immigrants being made "illegal" to justify certain treatment. This way, they are kept from being able to fight, to some extent, for basic human rights, and people are made to actually believe that they don't deserve certain rights because they are "illegal". Of course, they are only "illegal" because it is in the interest of the government and businesses to make them so, so that we can have a permanent underclass to exploit the labor of. Anyway, you get the point.
