The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book had been on my TBR list for awhile. What made me read it now, was that I got into an argument with a coworker because he claimed there were no laws written that were racist. Obviously, I disagreed, but I am not an expert so I picked this book up to help me better understand and try to explain this to my coworker. One of the things mentioned in the book is that there are not actual laws that allow racism, but they can be written to specifically target certain groups of people. Also, people can interpret laws differently and that can lead to specific groups being targeted.

I really enjoyed reading this book and learning about this concept. Maybe next time I am talking to my coworker I will be able to explain this better, but unfortunately probably not… At least I now know more and can be a better person because of it.

  1. Yes! The biggest in current history is the 1994 Crime Bill written by Joe Biden, and signed by Bill Clinton, this bill almost singal handedly put more American people of color into prison than any other individual law ever written in the United States!
