Poverty, not inherent racial prejudice, is responsible for disproportionate encounters between the police and ethnic minorities.

Police officers are called to poor neighbourhoods more often and there are more ethnic minorities in poor areas— for example, the black poverty rate in America is 22 percent, while the white rate is 8.8 percent.
