    In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. Yet, as legal star Michelle Alexander reveals, today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans.

    Jeremy says: "An essential read. A horrifying reality."
    "A reality check on Racial Justice in America"

    Story

    What I loved about this book was the the detailed, thoughtful analysis Alexander undertook to throw light on the darkness that has dominated the conversation about racial equality and our criminal justice system. It is a brutally honest look at the system we have created, and in taking such a close look, she makes something possible that was not possible before: Justice. Equality. Dignity. An end to the permanent underclass system of mass incarceration.
