Part of the problem is that the black % of the population is around 14%, so just how do you ensure there are “enough” black officers, judges, lawyers, etc? We’ve been down this road before....If blacks either aren’t interested in those positions or can’t get a degree required to get them, how is that to be remedied?
In times of war, how does the military get people to sign on the dotted line? They recruit. Why not recruit in black high schools, black colleges, etc. I'm talking about police and law enforcement work, of course.
But as an educational goal, the legal profession can be peddled more in minority communities and high school and colleges. And stress the importance of getting more minorities into the legal profession.
I admit, though, it has to come from within. It would be difficult for white recruiters to show enthusiasm about helping minority young people to get into the legal profession and law enforcement. So, minorities have to recruit their own and push their into these types of professions.
It is a bit of a dilemma.
