On average, blacks cleared of murder spent three years longer in prison before release than whites who were cleared, the study said [Darren Hauck/EPA]

African Americans are far more likely to be wrongfully convicted of crimes such as murder, sexual assault and illegal drug activity than whites, a review of nearly 2,000 exonerations in the United States over almost three decades found.

Of the 1,900 defendants convicted of crimes and later exonerated, 47 percent were African Americans - three times their representation in the population - according to the study from the National Registry of Exonerations, which examined cases from 1989 to October 2016.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
