The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander

Image of the cover for "The New Jim Crow" by Michelle Alexander.If you are looking to gain a deeper and richer understanding of the justice system in America, and how it has historically been applied to people of color, you need look no further than Michelle Alexander’s, “The New Jim Crow.”  Everything is laid out for you in this book, as court cases from yesterday’s headlines to the antebellum south illustrate how language and litigation have shaped how the legal system views, treats, and regards its citizens of color.

Discussed heavily on $#!+ You Might Have Missed, a regular roundtable podcast on Flash/Black :radio: featuring The Usual Suspects, The New Jim Crow thoroughly explains how slavery gave way to the prison industrial complex.  Every argument and every detail is painfully researched and considered, eliminating the ability of rationale readers to explain away the atrocities that the justice system has exacted upon peoples of color as circumstantial or paranoia.  Because of its thoroughness, and its ability to dissect over three centuries of legal and social precedents, this book is being listed as a must-read for members of the Flash/Black audience, and for those who are part of the multicolored collective.  What’s more, if one who is not a part of the multicolored majority sincerely wants to have an understanding of how race impacts those who are–this is the perfect place to start.  If you haven’t done so already–buy your copy here!
