    One of my neighbors got busted several years ago, in a different neighborhood, for drug possession. He's white, and he said that definitely made a difference in getting sentenced to probation rather than jail. "I think I reminded the prosecutor of his son," he said, "and I didn't mind playing that up a little."

    Which doesn't work as well if your race is different from the prosecutor's.
