Richard has posted his review of the second chapter of Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. I hope you’ll visit his site and chime in with your thoughts.
A quick word about comments. This topic elicits strong reactions. There are comments I’ve removed from my review of the first chapter because of the ugly assumptions that were made about the author and the divisive language that was used. There will be disagreements and a wide variety of perspectives around this topic. Fair enough. But please keep your comments charitable and assume the best about those you’re writing about.
