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



This is also the title of her book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

“Parents and schoolteachers counsel black children that, if they ever hope to escape this system and avoid prison time, they must be on their best behavior, raise their arms and spread their legs for the police without complaint, stay in failing schools, pull up their pants, and refuse all forms of illegal work and moneymaking activity, even if jobs in the legal economy are impossible to find.”
