THE NEW JIM CROW A BOOK MY MICHELLE ALEXANDER.
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, the U.S. incarcerates 25% of the world's prisoners) and what she perceives as societal repression of African-American 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 young 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 the 1960s. However, 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.

In the words of S. Alexander:
"I love words, sunny days, stormy nights, mellow jazz, interesting people and animals .A retired broadcaster, and narrator-, my greatest joy besides writing is 'being.'
My characters are old friends, who allow me to peek in on their lives and write about it. They keep me awake nights, and I hope they do for many years to come.
I’m Brandi ‘S’ Alexander plus a few other alters; S Alexander is my primary pen name. Can’t say I’m a struggling young writer, with all the silver strands of wisdom on my head; fine ribbons of valor for staying the course (or genetics and children)! However, I am a struggling writer and loving every minute! I want you to love what I do too, but you have to read it. Once you do-, you’ll become an S Alexander novel addict! Now would I lie to you-, my potential audience, fan base, providers of my needs-, like food and shelter? Never!
I’ve never-ever made up a story. Never! My characters come to me and share their lives, then allow me to write it all down-, for you. My books aren’t biased; covers every genre from classic novel to nit-wit, faith to fantasy, obviously adult content to children’s stories.I’m a southern writer, and enjoy the ‘well-, maybe moments,’ when it comes to descriptive romantic situations. Always highly sensual, but never crossing the line of descent sensibility-, well that’s the way I see it. The same applies to language. There are some dirty words that I just won’t say; still a latent fear that momma’s listening (I’m not sure that she wouldn’t understand the ‘blank-blank-blanks’ and other fillers-, so who am I fooling)!"
