Great article it hits the nail right on the head.
This is a great article about how the school to prison pipeline operates on such n institutionalized level where minor things now equate to major consequences. I find it funny that these Zero tolerance policies started in the 1980s with Reagan’s War on Drugs which actually was a War on the Poor and marginalized.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's parole board wrote a new ending for the infamous "Scottsboro Boys" rape case Thursday by approving posthumous pardons more than 80 years after the arrests.
The board made the unanimous decision during a hearing in Montgomery for three black men whose convictions were never overturned in a case that came to symbolize racial injustice in the Deep South in the 1930s.
Although a new verdict will not bring back a child that was murdered during the height of the Jim Crow South it shows that there is hope for recognizing the ugliness that is racism and how it has destroyed the lives of Americans throughout history.
This story breaks my heart.
