The New Jim Crow
The New Jim Crow Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness By Alexander, Michelle Book - 2020

She keeps saying that if drug use is the same across the races, why do we have a disproportionate amount of people of color serving time for nonviolent drug charges? First of all, the laws in this country are for drug possession, not for drug use. Who's gonna be caught with more? The guys selling it, not the guys using it. So, let's look into the drug trade. I highly recommend watching the show Drugs, INC, and finding at least one documentary on a drug cartel. Most of the drugs in America are coming in from Mexico or Colombia. The cartels bring them across the border, and the gangs sell them on the streets. Females, Asians, and whites make up less than 5-15% of all gangs/cartels. So, the vast majority of the guys selling drugs are people of color. That's not racist, that's fact. When you look into it, you'll realize the nightmare violence associated with the drug trade. The cops target these poor neighborhoods of color because of the violence. People who are growing up there and trying to be good do NOT need to be told white people are subconsciously out to get them! They need all the help they can get!
