P3 anxieties and plans

My P3 essay will be written on the overwhelming incarceration rates for the black community compared to the white community for marijuana related arrests and charges. My worries for this paper will be that I will accidentally contribute too much of my own opinion to the tone of the paper and use my sources to back it up, rather than use my sources as a baseline to build and argument with. I’ve also been struggling to find sources on this topic, as our country likes to pretend that this mass incarceration epidemic isn’t taking place. I hope to be able to build a really strong argument and include some special cases in which black men and women have been given longer sentences for non-violent minor drug possession charges than their white counter parts have received for violent charges.
