"In The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of
Colorblindness legal scholar Michelle Alexander offers a unique and
comprehensive account of mass incarceration of African Americans in the
United States. Focusing on what she calls “racial caste” and social
stratification by class, she explores the systemic influence of racism on law
enforcement policy in the contemporary United States.
In the “Introduction,” Alexander describes her thesis by discussing
the struggles faced by African Americans today. On her view, what began
early in American history as overt racial discrimination has now been
transformed into a racial caste system enforced by what colloquially goes by
the name “the criminal justice system.” In fact, she argues, “the criminal
justice system” is a racial caste system spearheaded by the war on drugs and
the use of incarceration as a means of social control."
