It is prison Friday here at Scission. I'm late, I know, I have been involved in an endless "argument on Facebook." Forgive me, such a waste of time. I just don't have good self control.
Anyway, we all know about the Prison Industrial Complex and Mass Incarceration. We all know about the racism and white supremacy behind both. We all know about the private prison industry. Here, below, is some research done on the incredible overrepresentation of People of Color in the private prison Industry. You think the record of state and Federal prison systems are bad, get a load of this...from Prison Legal News (hardly a left wing, radical operation mind you). It's a dry, academic read, but still worth a look see at one more way in which white supremacy and white skin privilege operate in this country known as the USA.
