    A large part of the reason that prisons are full of minorities is that the drug laws are enforced with racial bias:  Members of minorities imprisoned for drug charges far exceeds the proportionate amounts of members of minorities that use drugs (to put it another way, N out of every 100 drug users are black, but N+X out of every 100 people imprisoned for drug crimes are black).  I lack the data right at the moment, but it's on the list for a future article.
