Lady Justice may wear a blindfold, but statistics show that what happens to a person in our criminal justice system may depend on the color of his or her skin. Studies have shown that there are profound differences in how African Americans and Latinos are treated compared to whites. African American and Latino citizens are more likely to be stopped by police, searched, arrested and convicted than their white counterparts. As our nation reckons with long simmering issues of injustice and police accountability, we tackle the question of how race affects the criminal justice system.
