Feel free to write back after you’ve given these a thorough read:

There are active racial gerrymandering and voter disenfranchisement cases working their way through the courts in NC and AL. Here’s one: https://www.npr.org/2017/08/30/547065920/under-pressure-north-carolina-draws-new-voting-maps

Here’s a good report on sentencing disparity, which demonstrates one way in which what we consider illegal and how we punish crimes is discriminatory: https://www.aclu.org/other/cracks-system-20-years-unjust-federal-crack-cocaine-law

Here’s BLMs’ policy platform, which I posted upthread and which you haven’t referenced: https://policy.m4bl.org/platform/

So the stats you’re citing don’t really make the case you think they do.
