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.

After the NFL Draft it is time to turn our attention to the NBA and NHL playoffs. Both leagues implement seven game series starting in round one. A long first round series may not affect a team immediately, but if the team advances, those additional minutes can add up. The NBA playoffs have followed suit except for the Portland Trailblazers. The Trailblazers were the only lower seed to advance to the second round. They dismantled the injury ridden Los Angeles Clippers in six games. The biggest series is betwen the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder. The number two and three seeds will battle for the right to play in the Western Conference Finals.
The NHL had a glimpse of excitement, and gave fans two underdogs to route for. The Nashville Predators and New York Islanders advance as wildcard teams. The Predators jumped out to an early series lead over the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks did not fold and forced a game seven, but fell to the fiesty Predators. The Islanders took care of the Florida Panthers in six games, and proved to the hockey world that they will not be an easy out. The Islanders took game one, but lost in OT to the Tampa Bay Lightning in game three making the series 2-1, in favor of the Lightning. The biggest draw in the NHL playoffs is the series between the Washington Capitals and the PIttsburgh Penguins. Each team has an NHL star, with Alexander Ovechkin on the Capitals and Sidney Crosby on the Penguins. Ovechkin is looking to play in a Conference Final for the first time, while Crosby yearns to hoist the Stanley Cup for a second time.
