Reply To: African Americans disproportionately represented on sex offender registries

I read your article and unfortunately do not a as agree with you. Being an RSO myself a and working with the program in prison I think you are off base here. A lot has to do with family upbringing and what is deemed acceptable in Ones culture. In my opinion sex offenders in general are thought of as the worst of the worst it regardless of their race. While it may be true that some white individuals can afford a better attorney that does not always play out. I’m white and I did not have money for one. We keep harping on black people not getting equal treatment with the law. The majority of SO’s are treated fairly equal as in harsh punishment for any sex crime. Sorry I just don’t agree with your though process.
