Commonplace Book Entry 8: The 13th

I watched this documentary about the criminal justice system and it reminded of our discussion of rhetoric and the impact it has. Our country’s history led to the commercialization of imprisonment. The politicians that that passed laws to keep people, specifically black men, in jail have caused the problems that we are facing today. It was impossible to watch this film and not want to take action. Change needs to be made and as a student it feels as though it is my job to make it.
