    SiGnOtHeTiMeS w Queen Tahiyrah Tonight's Audiobook Michelle Alexander NewJimCrow

    in Motivation

    The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness a book by Michelle Alexander a civil rights litigator and legal scholar, published in 2010(The New Press). The book deals with race-related and social, political, and legal phenomena in the United States and attempts to apply the term 'The New Jim Crow' to the situation of African Americans in the contemporary United States. The name derives from the original Jim Crow laws that prevailed in the states of the former Confederacy of the U.S. through the 1960s. This book was on The New York Times Best Seller List ten consecutive months, and philosopherCornel West has called it a "secular bible for a new social movement in early twenty-first-century America." In the book Alexander deals primarily with the issue of the current mass levels of incarceration in the United States (with 5%of the world's population, U.S. incarcerates 25%of the world's prisoners) and what she perceives as societal repression of AfricanAmerican men and, to a lesser degree, Latino men. She discusses the social consequences of various policies for people of color, as well as for the US population as a whole. According to Alexander, the majority of black men in large American cities are "warehoused in prisons," their labor no longer needed in the globalized economy. Alexander maintains that many young black men, once they are labeled as "felons," become trapped in a second-class status that they find difficult to escape. The conventional point of view holds that discrimination has mostly ended with the Civil rights movement reforms of 1960s. Alexander claims the U.S. criminal justice system uses the “War on Drugs” as a primary tool for enforcing traditional, as well as new, modes of discrimination and repression.

    Nation of Perpetual Punishment

    in Politics Progressive

    Paid your debt to society? Think again and keep paying.


    Our literary and cinematic clichés include felons reinventing themselves after prison. Our society actively discourages reintegration. We are more like Valjean/Javert or Hester Prynne. You will wear your mistake and pay for it so long as you live.


    Most obvious are CORI-style criminal-records files that give employers an excuse to hire someone other than an ex-convict. That keeps the former felon struggling and poor.  


    Even among rich celebrities, there can be pushback. Lately Mak Wahlberg has asked for a pardon from an old conviction for a racist assault (one of several in his teens and early 20s). Seems as a convicted felon, he has problems getting liquor licenses for his burger restaurants. Consider the harm and hopelessness if you aren't a wealthy, famous music and movie star.


    At a base level though, why do the feds encourage states to bar former felons from the number one civic duty of voting? Only two New England states let incarcerated criminals vote absentee. Quite a few permanently ban participation in elections.


    There is some logic to preventing ex-convicts from getting gun permits...but only if they had committed vioent offenses. But honestly, why separate the paid-their-debt crowd from the rights of citizenship?
