Post The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.



So, this book came out a few years ago, but it's still gained in popularity especially in academia..

i am finally about to read this but i do wanna hear about others' thoughts on the issue -whether they've read Michelle Alexander's book or not..

especially concerning with the increase in police brutality cases in the U.S. against young Black & Brown men.

I've not read that book in particular. I have read some studies with regard to imprisonment becoming an expected life event in colored youth. Which plays a major role in their ability to complete a "normal life cycle". Which in turn plays a part in their ability to contribute to society.

^ tlazocamati/thank you for your observation! it's a vicious cycle that makes me wonder if the official war on drugs were to be dismantled, how big the effect would be.. on one hand it's progress, in the other, there is a disgusting legacy that has devastating effects.

will have to wait to purchase this book, but i def. look forward to reading.
