Here’s my preferred set for the clowns who always bitch about using Google links: Demographic Differences in Sentencing report by the United States Sentencing Commission, Racial Disparity in Federal Criminal Sentences report by the U of M Law School, Explaining Discrepancies in Arrest Rates Between Black and White Read more

It’s called Force Majeure. GM isn’t crossing picket lines or laying people off and replacing them with salaried employees.
