Let's Talk about Numbers
The U.S. consists of 4.6% of the world's population, but it represents 22% of the world's prison population.
In California, there are about 170,000 people locked up in its 33 prisons, of which 21 were built in the last 16 years.
Only one university was built - U.C. Merced.
I still wonder how many Asian Pacific Islander Americans are part of the 2.2 million who are incarcerated.
