The American justice system is legalized, lethal racism
TRIGGER WARNING Mass murder, assault, abuse, racism Let’s talk about the justice system in America. More specifically, the prison system. It would be a mistake to call the system a broken one. It isn’t. It’s working exactly how WP in positions of power designed it to; by…
