User reviews about the book
Must read for all Africans Americans.
This is a true scholar's work. Chronological, concise, to the point. Every statement is sourced — EVERY statement. If you make the decision to read this book, you will no longer be able to shield yourself from the reality that racial-bias in this country has reached an epidemic point. You have have to take a stand and choose a side; are you with fairness or are you with injustice?
Must read for every one
Thank you. I have been enlightened
It's a good book, but has it's Flaws.
This book is a good read and brings many issues to the forefront. Everyone should read it! The drug war is a complete failure and needs drastic changes to overcome multiple issues. The facts or lack of information in this Book is the biggest failure the author neglected to fully develop. Very subjective in presenting information to the reader to move her agenda along. This would have been five stars if it was more objective and included facts about mass incarceration as a whole, but that might dilute the author's intended purpose. Lastly even if all drug offenders were released form prison tomorrow, the U.S. Would still have more people behind bars than any other country. Seeing how drug offenses only account for about 20% of the total prison population.
The New Jim Crow
One of the most enlightening books I have ever read!!!
This book is a book worth reading for every one, not just African American. Opened my view on the legal justice system, that I once that was fair. I would definitely recommend this book for youth in high school. Created an everlasting change in my view of things.
The new Jim Crow
By Personal FX
The book " THE NEW JIM CROW " should be read by each and every young man of high school age. The book reveals the alarming rates of ego involved institutions based on fear and separation. Nothing can be changed without first being aware.
most important book you will read
If you care about the issues surrounding racial equality, you will find this book necessary to help fine tune your thoughts and solidify your understanding of systematic racism. Well done.
