Michelle Alexander for Supreme Court Justice
Denise Morris considers the likelihood that Michelle Alexander could be our next Supreme Court Justice. Alexander is the author of the critically acclaimed "The New Jim Crow: mass incarceration in the age of color-blindness" (which Old Moles have covered HERE and HERE and HERE) and an accomplished legal scholar. This has prompted some to call for her nomination to the Supreme Court, but rather than campaigning for herself, she's been campaigning against the political machine of mass incarceration boastfully supported by Democrats and Republicans alike under and after the Clinton Administration. To that end, Denise reads from a recent article she wrote for The Nation magazine: "Why Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Deserve the Black Vote: from the crime bill to welfare reform, policies Bill Clinton enacted—and Hillary Clinton supported—decimated black America."
