Who gets a second chance?

Ampersand has a pretty interesting post on how race and class affect our reaction to wrongdoing by teens and how society responds to their lapses. Sympathy for unfortunate experimentation, or punishment for going astray?
How much better would Black kids be if they were allowed to fail and be rescued as often as White kids are? I'd like to find out.
