More Black Americans in US Prisons than were enslaved

This is shocking data.

I’m willing to bet that a majority — if not most — of these incarcerations relate to nonviolent “drug offenses” (i.e. non-crimes). If you aren’t a pugnacious opponent of the breathtakingly racist War on Drugs — no matter how politically correct you might consider yourself — you are implicitly facilitating the most racist domestic policy of our time.
