The Scottsboro Boys were nine Black teenage boys (the youngest was 13 and the oldest was 19) accused of rape in Alabama in 1931. The landmark set of legal cases from this incident dealt with racism and the right to a fair trial. The case included a frameup, an all-White jury, rushed trials, an attempted lynching, an angry mob, and is an example of an overall miscarriage of justice.

In McKinney, Texas, police were called when a group of black teenagers refused to leave a community swimming pool after closing hours. It ended with a cop wrestling a girl in a bikini (also black and 100 pounds soaking wet, which she probably was) to the ground, pulling her hair, sitting on her back and then chasing other teenagers with his gun out when they plead with him to stop. He has been suspended and placed on administrative leave.
