Why are 1 in 9 black men in prison?

This is a bunch of crap. so a black man is 10 times more likely to commit a serious crime than a white man? I think thats why most whites are afraid of black people.
Update: I didnt put it in the gay section. it did it on its own. Yahoo must think I'm gay. That OK. I would rather hear what the gays think. they are smarter.
Update 2: wow. everybody likes to blame everything and everybody but the black man.
Update 3: ktlove.........1 in 100 is very bad
