A Modest Proposal
President Obama and governor Terry Mcauliffe are disturbed by the imbalance of of white and black incarcerated people when compared to the population in general. The solution by the president was to release 20,000 "minor" offenders and by the governor to restore civil rights of voting (a blatantly political move) . I have a proposal that would solve the imbalance of prison population without endangering the welfare of the nation. Let us set a quota for arrest of white people. For every black person incarcerated we should incarcerate five whites. That would even things out. However, we would have to create a new class of criminal acts to justify detention since whites commit fewer existing crimes percentagewise than blacks. Laws could be enacted criminalizing mundane acts like paying attention to the Kardashians, attending Republican caucuses, or expressing negative opinions about gangsta rap.
