As a white male police officer of 32 years, this book needs to be part of law enforcement training.
This was eye opening, and very informative. It was a hard core truth that was very hard to swallow at times!!
Well written and well narrated. A must read for anyone who cares about equal rights and justice.
Excellent read about the history of Jim Crow and also another look at America with there modern new Jim crow.
An eye-opening list of the past and present.
Mind boggling! A life changing gift from an absolutely incredible person as she discovers the latest chapter in the sorry history of race relations in our country. Not to be missed if you are interested in how we need to finally move beyond the racism that for centuries has been one of the foundational building blocks of our country.
A must read.
This is an amazing book I wrote down so many quotes from this book I recommend a good read!!
I had so many “so that’s why” moments. I have truly been enlightened.
It's an eye-opener for sure to see how the mass incarceration system is a caste system for black and brown people. We tend to know these things, but let them fade too far into the background.
So two questions I have. Is the mass incarceration of black males an unintended result of a problem riddled criminal justice system? Michelle Alexander would have us believe, absolutely, positively not. So my other question is do you really believe racial bias exists from the lowest of the white class to the U.S Supreme Court? At all levels extermination of the black male race is their goal? (Whoops 3 questions). This book raises a lot of them. Glad I read it, but don’t always agree with it. Redundant at times.
