Breakdown of Federal Convictions by Race
The Volokh Conspiracy today posted statistics regarding the race of offenders convicted of particular crimes. I won't announce the numbers, as we should give Volokh their due (and traffic), but let's just say the crimes that various races are drawn to (or more often guilty of) is rather unsurprising. The statistics come from the 2007 Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics.
