Race and justice in America are inextricably linked. A walk through nearly any courtroom or prison reveals a sea of black and brown faces, from the defendant's table to the prison yard.- Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling
Race to Incarcerate, Marc Mauer's 1999 authoritative book on America's criminal justice system, has been reimagined as a work of graphic non-fiction. In Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling, painter, comic book artist, and illustrator Sabrina Jones transforms Mauer's history of the criminal justice system into a powerful true crime story -- accessible to young readers and people of all ages.
Mauer is the executive director of The Sentencing Project in Washington D.C., and Jones is the author and graphic artist of Isadora Duncan: A Graphic Biography and a number of politically focused comics.
"If current trends continue, one of every three black males and one of every six Latino males born today can expect to find themselves at some point behind bars," according to a press release issued by the New Press announcing the publication of Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling.
America's criminal justice system hasn't always been completely oriented to a "lock 'em up and throw away the key" approach. In fact, despite periodic surges of criminal activity, the number of prisoners in the United States remained relatively stable through most of the 20th century. In the 1970s, however, things began to change: In 1972, there were 300,000 prisoners behind bars in the country; by 2010, that number had skyrocketed to 2.3 million. At 730 prisoners for every 100,000 citizens, the U.S. rate of incarceration is the highest in the world, outstripping Russia, Iran, China, Brazil, Japan, Britain, France, and Germany. Young black and Latino men have been disproportionally the target of this rush to incarcerate.
First published in 1999, Marc Mauer's Race to Incarcerate quickly became the seminal text exposing the exponential growth of the U.S. prison system. Mauer, one of the country's foremost experts on sentencing policy, race, and the criminal justice system, explained how "tough on crime" political rhetoric and the war on drugs swelled the prison population while devastating communities of color.

Michelle Alexander, the author of the recent bestseller The New Jim Crow, called Mauer's original book "utterly indispensable" to her work "as a civil rights lawyer and advocate challenging racial profiling by law enforcement, investigating patterns of drug law enforcement, and launching media campaigns designed to raise awareness about skyrocketing incarceration rates and the devastating toll that 'get tough' policies were having in our communities."
Jonathan Kozol, a prolific author, educator, and activist, called the book "A tremendously disturbing and important book about the devastating increase in our prison population.... The questions that it poses calls for answers that too few of those in power have been brave enough to give." Civil Rights leader and activist Julian Bond stated that the book "Explains why prisoners have become commodities and why present policies are draining black communities of their young men."
Fourteen years after the original edition and seven years after an update, many things have changed, and "there is now reason for cautious optimism about the accomplishments and prospects for reform," Mauer writes in the Preface to the newly released Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling (The New Press, 2013). Mauer states in the Preface, "After nearly four decades of sustained growth, prison populations appear to be stabilizing, and even declining in some states."
There have been "significant national reductions in population in the juvenile justice system, where the number of young people in detention has declined by a third since the late 1990s." "Get Tough" prison sentencing policies have seen "encouraging breakthroughs." Mauer also points out that "Developments in the courts are also encouraging, none more so that a series of decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the sentencing of juveniles."
And perhaps the "most promising" development "is the shift in public dialogue about criminal justice policy."
Despite these developments, "we also need to recognize the enormous scale of the problem at hand. After nearly four decades of steadily rising imprisonment, reducing our level of incarceration to anything reasonable will require far more than just tinkering with sentencing and parole policy."
Even if the doyens of our criminal justice system were to issue a decree emptying "the prisons and jails of anyone awaiting trial or serving time for a drug conviction," the number of people behind bars would be reduced from about 2.3 million to 1.8 million, "a significant reduction ... but hardly on the scale that would end mass incarceration."
The main problem, writes Mauer, "is that we have come to rely on the criminal justice system as our primary approach to social problems, particularly in low-income communities of color." The war on drugs, has disproportionally impacted "mostly low-income people of color with little access to treatment," has decimated minority communities.

The American system of justice is unfair and unbalanced, always has been, nothing new.

You have two kinds of negroes. One that is a criminal, and one that is a future criminal. It's always wise to take safety measures and go ahead and put both in prison.

There is nly one criminal justice system. Racist!

Why do white criminals claim they have some type of medical conditin we they are caught and black folks are told not to even think about using that type of defense?

The shyt is pathetic sometimes. Look at this chick Jodi Arias. She stabbed ole boy 39 times, Shot him in the head and slit his throat and the white jury still hee and hawed before reaching their verdict and they are now slowly working her way off of the death penalty, which of course, had it been a black chick, we know there would not have been the slightest hesitation. These people act as if we are without eyes!

Interesting take on the situation.

I view her more as Latina, than white, but I think folks have a harder time sentencing women to death in general.

She clearly met the usual criteria for death sentence with a white victim, since that it is usually the case in the US, which is anything but colorblind when it comes to the death penalty which is sadly, based on race of the accused, or victim's race.

I say that if there is a criteria that qualifies one for the death penalty, then it should be indifferently applied without regard to race or gender, and if not, get rid of it. Because I fail to see why a man would qualify for death for a specific crime, but a woman would not for committing the same exact crime. It undermines the integrity of the whole "equality" issue and for me, reduces it to empty rhetoric.

I just read the other day that the state of Colorado has only a 4% black population, but every person on death row is black. So, if we argue that subjective attitudes about gender are okay, then we have to accept those about race as well.

I am one that is against the death penalty, besides the barbarism, it is not given on any type of equal basis.
