Opens your eyes about our criminal justice system
I recommend this book because Demico Boothe gives vivid details of his experiences in a number of federal prisons and gives the reader a better understanding of what it is like for young Black men in prisons throughout our country. Most of the young Black men in jail are serving longer sentences than the years they have been alive. They are serving more time for nonviolent crimes than White men are serving for violent crimes. Demico attests to this. It is what motivated him to write the book and to make others aware of the growing issue of so many young African-American men in the prison system. I didn't realize until I read this book that there are so many loop holes in our government in regards to this issue. Read this book to find out more why our society doesn't give justice to the young Black men in becoming productive citizens.
