Black Canadians are the fastest growing group in federal prisons in Canada

While African-Canadians make up 3% of the general Canadian population, they account for 10% of the federal prison population.

It's even worse when you realize that their ancestors were the smartest and most motivated of the African-Americans, who hated being slaves and traveled at great risk along the ratlines of the Underground Railroad to get into Canada (i.e. beyond the reach of the Fugitive Slave Law) and build self-sufficient farming communities.

And now their descendants have reverted to the mean, which is to say, they behave pretty much like black people anywhere else.
