I'll get a dedicated thread started before the weekend is out and post a link to it here. I'll also try to get the next poll started early enough to leave it open for a couple weeks to give more people time to learn about the poll and participate.

My apologies if this poll's run was too short. As mentioned before, I'm new to this and learning as I go. Thanks for helping me figure it out.

Here's the dedicated thread for discussing The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander.

I added the link to the Book History list in the original post on this thread, too.

I’m going to sit this one out. What we are doing with prisons is nothing more than slavery and it’ll be too rough for me now. Book looks excellent though!

It goes much deeper than that. The book is loaded with valuable insights.

I don’t blame you for taking a break though. This stuff is emotionally taxing. It’s heart breaking. Take as long as you need.
