    There's a common conception, at least among liberals, that our criminal justice system has a deep racial bias embedded within it. But even people who hold that view will be pretty shocked by this data, compiled by the ACLU in a blockbuster report this year. Though black people and white people use marijuana at the same rate, black people are much much much more likely to be arrested for possessing it. In other words: our racist criminal justice system In One Chart.
