By watching this documentary I’ve learned a lot about the issues regarding the prison system in the US. Like how different reforms and laws where made by the state to control people, or in this case African Americans. Like in the 13th amendment where if you’re convicted as a felon, you’re a slave of the state.
I got insights on what the situation around the mass incarceration issue in the US surrounding imprisonment of black men. Like how around 40% of black men have been to prison or are in prison, and how this is a serious problem connected to the 13th amendment.
Questions I still have after watching is: how can we change things and make them right? and what can I do to spread awareness and help out?
