I'll read just about anything that might be interesting and love to learn about new things.

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness - Michelle Alexander I gained a lot of interesting knowledge, though I was not as shocked by the main thesis as others may be. I agreed with the authors main argument prior to reading the first page and found many of the arguments I have made to others contained within the pages of this book. While this book is well written and concisely argued, I did not find it's main premise to be surprising, but I do feel that this should be required reading at either the high school or introductory college level.
