Unequal Burden: Income and Racial Disparities

Justice, what does it mean? After reading the report about subprime loans, I just wondered what it means to the people in the third world. This is happening here today, in the United States. In the third world it is worse. Here is the last paragraph that made me wanna...:

The only matatus that must go to the police station for a strip search, are the ones going to Kikuyuland. There are more Kikuyus in prison than any other group.

Raila and Luos should also be very careful when making statements about the election. Kenyans did not vote for Raila the Luo; Kenyans voted for Raila the ODM nominee.
