    You asked the question of where young blacks see racism today.
    Today's battlefield is the state and federal court systems. Until there is equality and the elimination of racial injustices committed by police, prosecutors and court officials, African Americans will remain 2nd class citizens. Congress has recently tried to address the issue of racial disparity and injustices in the federal courts with the proposed Justice Integrity Act, of 2009 but there is nothing to stop a state court from tacitly tolerating, condoning and even perpetuating acts of institutional racism. I have personally had a 7-year long battle with NH officials about institutional racism, civil and constitutional rights violations committed by police, prosecutors, corrections and court officials. My quest for vindication of my rights and those of my children have been made all the more difficult by a judicial system that refuses to even acknowledge such biases and prejudices exist, let alone put an end to such practices. My complaint includes acts committed by the civil and criminal courts.
