Australia has higher incarceration rates for Indigenous men than is the case in the USA for either Black Americans or Native Americans.
The Black Lives Matter movement in the United States drew attention to the high imprisonment rate of black Americans: 1 in every 55 black American men is imprisoned. However, the rate of over-imprisonment is much worse in Australia for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
One in every 22 Indigenous Australian men is in prison.
