Product Description

Review

Devastating. . . . Alexander does a fine job of truth-telling, pointing a finger where it rightly should be pointed: at all of us, liberal and conservative, white and black.
Forbes

Alexander is absolutely right to fight for what she describes as a “much-needed conversation” about the wide-ranging social costs and divisive racial impact of our
criminal-justice policies.
Newsweek

Invaluable . . . a timely and stunning guide to the labyrinth of propaganda, discrimination, and racist policies masquerading under other names that comprises what we call justice in America.
Daily Kos

Many critics have cast doubt on the proclamations of racism’s erasure in the Obama era, but few have presented a case as powerful as Alexander’s.
In These Times

Carefully researched, deeply engaging, and thoroughly readable.
Publishers Weekly

[Written] with rare clarity, depth, and candor.
Counterpunch

A call to action for everyone concerned with racial justice and an important tool for anyone concerned with understanding and dismantling this oppressive system.
Sojourners

Undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S.

I found this to be a very unsettling book. Being a Jamaican-born person of African-American appearance I have no other option but to place myself in the shoes of the victims of this process. Ms.Alexander has put together a very articulate, well-researched, factual, though disturbing peace. This leaves a reader with the questions...what do I do now? What can I do?
As the reader continues through the book, he/she begins to wonder, how can I make it stop?
I hope that there will be a follow-up book that covers the recovery period for America, as this should not be the epitaph for any nation on this planet.

Excellent book written by a lawyer. The author does an excellent job at research based facts and arguments. The US has serious pockets of corruption. I am not sure where the country is going but without a demand change from Good Americans it is likely not going to a good place.

If you think we have progressed beyond racism, you are mistaken. Well-Researched and Written. If the unexamined life is not worth living, we all need to read this.
