[The young black males are] shuttled into prisons, branded as criminals and felons, and then when they’re released, they’re relegated to a permanent second-class status, stripped of the very rights supposedly won in the civil rights movement — like the right to vote, the right to serve on juries, the right to be free of legal discrimination and employment, and access to education and public benefits. Many of the old forms of discrimination that we supposedly left behind during the Jim Crow era are suddenly legal again, once you’ve been branded a felon.

In her book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, legal scholar Michelle Alexander writes that many of the gains of the civil rights movement have been undermined by the mass incarceration of black Americans in the war on drugs. (via nprfreshair)

and america is the prison capital of the world. the world. more people in prison than china, cuba, south america. with the most people of color imprisoned you would think that people of color commit the most crimes? nope.OR that they are caught more frequently. on the contrary, PoC are just tried more frequently. now aint that some racist shit. white people are literally exempt from the same legal system that rapes you and never lets you forget it. and of course they are… they created the legal system. it only makes sense who would be exempt from it.

“The Girl in the Blue Bra”

A veiled young woman is dragged and beaten by Egyptian military during a protest in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Her face is covered. Her torso is bare, except for her bright-blue bra, which is a millisecond away from being kicked by a solider. - NPR Picture Show (photo-Reuters/Landov)
