Quote – America’s Prisons

As a fellow author from Mississippi, I am a big fan of John Grisham. (My signed copy of Street Lawyer is quite precious). Now I am even more impressed after I have begun listening to The Guardians. I found the following quote to be quite insightful:

“In white America, prisons are good places where bad men pay for their crimes.”

“In black America, they are too often used as warehouses to keep minorities off the streets.”

John Grisham, The Guardians, Chapter 7
