    Reblogged this on INCITE! Blog and commented:
    From the report: “San Francisco’s uniquely large disparities in the arrest rates of African Americans versus other races have been repeatedly reported…yet little has been done. New figures show these disparities have worsened in recent years. Today, black women — 6% of SF’s female population — constitute nearly half of all female arrests, and are arrested at rates 13 times higher than women of other races.”
