The House I Live In

 

I watched the documentary The House I Live In directed by Eugene Jarecki, and my soul was crushed. This documentary is about the “war on drugs,” but the reality is it is about the mass incarceration of African American males and the war on poverty. Apparently our government thinks that if we can incarcerate African American males in mass quantities we can 1. get them off the street. 2. receive money for each head in the prison beds, and make a business of it. 3. put them to work through the convict work system.  Mass incarceration = a Holocaust in slow motion.
