Description
Publisher's description: Alexander, a civil rights advocate and legal scholar, argues that, despite decades of legal dismantling of Jim Crow and the election of the nation's first black president, the racial caste system has not ended in America; it has only been redesigned. In this legal and historical study, Alexander documents how the targeting of black men by the criminal justice system in the war on drugs functions as a system of racial control: the old forms of discrimination outlawed by the abolishment of Jim Crow--discrimination in employment, housing, education, the right to vote, and exclusion from jury service--are suddenly once again legal as soon as a citizen has been labeled a felon. Alexander challenges the civil rights community to place mass incarceration at the forefront of a new movement for racial justice in America.
