That’s not actually what the linked article says. Black Canadians actually make up about 10% of Canadian inmates. The 80% comes from the increase in incarceration of black Canadians over the last decade. Which is still disproportionately large, of course. Another thing to note is the disproportionate number of Aboriginal people in custody. Here’s a link about it from stats Canada. (I’m on mobile so I have no idea if this link will work sorry). This other link is pretty old but breaks some of this down further.
jsyk, only 2.9% of the population in Canada is black, and yet black Canadians makes 80% of prisons and are mostly likely to get mistreated in them.
tell me again racism doesn’t exist Canada. (:
