Aboriginal Australians make up 2% of the population in general but make up 30% of the jailed population

Wow. I had no idea this was true.. that there was a parallel in Australia. Now I wonder where else are similar things true?

Yes, you're coherent. I agree -- it's the more challenging conclusion, but it seems clear that it's the more intelligent one. Thanks for supporting me about this :-)

Besides, I think it makes the whole made-up names trend thing more interesting to stop assuming that it's somehow harmful .. it lets us set aside biases ("disturbing," "ill-conceived," "shame") before trying to understand it as something real people like us are actually doing in this world.
