Good point, well explained and repeated and analized in its historic evolution: mass incarceration black oriented, in a way is a continuation of slavery. But they don't explore, don't even discuss a contestative theory: You do need to have punishment and prisons, ¿don't you? And there are also white prisononers, don't they?

That wasn't the point at all of this documentary...

The biggest issue in the US regarding this subject was the fact that there are more than 2 millions prisoners in this country regardless of their ethnic background. No one will argue that they need to have some form of punishment and prisons there but everyone seems to agree that the whole thing got out of control with such a huge number.

Another point was to show that the US prisons are no longer used as a tool for justice and rehabilitation but as a tool of oppression and also a mean to make some money for private coorporations.

To say that this system has the same impact on white families and on other families from a different ethnic background is rather ridiculous.

The documentary is focused almost exclusively in proving its argument that mass incarceration is black oriented. That´s the point of the director, that's what I see and respect; but it's a pity that it looses the oportunity to explain the fundamentals of mass incarceration beyond race.
