You can help to stop the unjust incarceration of young Black men
Join the movement to stop the American system of The New Jim Crow by checking a book out of your local library or by buying and reading a paperback copy of The New Jim Crow. All high school and college students must read this book!
Step One: Get a library card. They are usually free! 
Professor Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow
Step Two: Ask to check-out a copy of The New Jim Crow at your local, school or neighborhood library.  This is usually free.
Step Three:  If your library does not have The New Jim Crow, ask when they will have it.  If they do not give you an adequate answer, contact the the library commissioner, executive director, principal of your school or the President of the Library Board and let them know that this is a book you want in your library.   
Step Four:  Encourage all of your friends and family to perform steps one, two, three and four.  Encourage all ex-felons or Black men who have had a brush with the law to perform steps one, two, three and four.

The Big Story, By E.J. Dionne
When we talk about hypocrisy in politics, we usually highlight personal behavior.
