Most of the racial disparity in sentencing* evaporates when you control for the arrest offense and the defendant’s criminal history, as well as the fact that black arrestees are disproportionately concentrated in federal districts that have higher sentences in general. That leaves about a 9% disparity, which you could further reduce by difficult-to-measure factors that while problematic, are not indicative of not recognizing the full humanity of black people (take the culturally embedded contempt for authority, which is not helpful when you are facing a judge, no matter how understandable it might be historically).
Black women with some college, for instance, have statistically worse birth outcomes than white women who haven't completed high school so there's more going on here than just a disparities of class or income.
This issue involves an incredibly tangled web** of environmental exposures and psychosocial stressors, which in turn have a tangled web of causality. I don't know how you reach the conclusion that an underrecognition of their humanity is implied.
People literally think men are less sensitive to pain than women. Are men not being recognized as fully human?
There's a huge body of literature on this. Do you need a bibliography in order to start educating yourself?
Hey, it's not easy sifting through all the garbage "scientific" literature
and outright deception
to get to the truth of the matter.
