The New Jim Crow is a wake-up call in the midst of a long slumber of indifference to the poor and vulnerable. This indifference promotes a superficial ethic of success – money, fame, and pleasure- that leaves too many well-adjusted to injustice. Once you read this book, you have crossed the Rubicon and there is no return to sleepwalking. You are now awaken to a dark and ugly reality that has been in place for decades.
