I thought I understood racism and mass incarceration. But nothing prepared me for what I saw in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. (1/x)

It makes me sad when people say they're "stunned" or "shocked" to know this still happens.

It literally says murderers are ok but drug offenders or prisoners that failed drug or alcohol test aren't.

law is not colorblind. Since 1964 the US has passed many laws targeting black and brown people

Next week is a busy court week for us. Maybe you can come along and tell me how sad I make you with my ignorance of criminal justice issues.

Correction: Mirriam. Autocorrect is unkind during periods of deliberate snark.

I wish it meant more to me when random dudes on twitter who just saw a few tweets of mine said shit to me. Too bad for you.
