Racial disparities are documented in every aspect of the criminal justice system, from massive stop and frisk operations, to who is arrested, charged and convicted. While the powered and crack cocaine sentencing inequality was dramatic, racial disparities exist in sentencing across the board. In another example of structural racism, a felony record makes it all the more difficult to get a job. With so many African American and Latino men serving time in prison, their families and communities are financially stymied. Further, in the states where felons lose their right to vote, large numbers of people of color are disenfranchised.
