Race in America: Michelle Alexander

  • Today there are more African american adults under correctional control, in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850, a decade before the civil war began.

  • As of 2004 more black men were denied the right to vote than in 1870, the year the 15th amendment was ratified, prohibiting laws that explicitly deny the right to vote on the basis of race.

  • Without basic Human Rights, Civil Rights are an empty promise.
