"If" is important, That aside, The point of the question is to show that either racial incarceration totals do not indicate any credible evidence of racism, Or if it does, Then by the same logic men are being persecuted for their gender, And/or women are being given a pass for theirs. It is inescapable that if you use the logic one way to prove racism, It's perfectly valid the other way to prove sexism. I do not here agree or disagree with the extent or existence of racial biases, But simply intend to show the flawed logic for what it is. . . Illogical.
