To anyone who doesn’t think that America’s justice system isn’t corrupt and racist, look no further than these two headlines from this week.
Pretty stark parallel when laid out side by side.

adding on to my validation posts to bring up other marginalised groups

shout out to all the disabled girls who are in education, this shit wasn’t built for you, it’s designed to break you down but you’re still here and you’re doing so well

all my love

Jon Hurwitz and Mark Peffley, political scientists and authors of Justice in America: The Separate Realities of Blacks and Whites, in a recent interview with the Washington Post’s Wonkblog about their academic studies documenting the “separate realities” and perceptions about the US criminal justice system based on race.
The whole interview is worth reading, but I wanted to emphasize this particular passage because it offers a stark and sobering window into white racism: when white people are presented with the notion that the criminal justice system is racist, they become more supportive of the death penalty and mandatory minimums.
To put it even more simply: most white people like the racist imprisonment and execution of Black folks. That’s literally the world that a majority of white people want to live in — a violently racist world — because they believe racist violence makes the world a better place for whites. Most whites support institutional racism, which is why they built it and continue to defend it and maintain it.
