The real shocker isn’t racial. It’s the enormous percentage of disabled and special needs kids who are dumped into the court system. Of course, they are the least likely to upload video ti YouTube, and apparantly, theleast likely to have others do so on their behalf.

In state after state, if black kids are sent to court at twice the rate of all students, the disabled are sent at tree to four times that rate.

We’re criminalizing kids for acting like kids, in direct proportion to their lack of community and parental resources, punishing those with the least the most.
