Last time I looked it up, law enforcement would treat white women the most lenient, followed by black women. White men are treated a bit worse than black women and of course, black men were treated harsher than the other groups.





Was that controlled? That is, did they measure only illegitimate detainments? Because I'm sure crime rates vary by demographic.

It seems controlled for the same crimes.
