Black Boys in Oakland Arrested More Than Other Groups
A study by the Black Organizing Project found that African-American boys in Oakland are arrested far more often than boys of other races. Between 2006 and 2012, Black boys were 73.5 percent of all juvenile arrests in the city, but made up 30 percent of the under-18 population. Just over 20 percent were actually prosecuted.
