Racism and the US Incarceration System

Recent events have, again, highlighted the shocking fact that racial discrimination, police brutality and a systemically racist system still exists today. We thought it was only right, if we attempted to shine a light on one very prevalent example of racism through the US incarceration system. Although no essay can fully do justice to this sensitive issue, we hope it encourages all to partake in actions to bring about an end to systemic racism.
