PSA

Hate to bury the fundraiser post, but this is worth mentioning:

ONE IN EVERY 100 AMERICAN ADULTS IS IN JAIL [NY Times]

I repeat,

ONE IN EVERY 100 AMERICAN ADULTS IS IN JAIL [Pew Center Report]

What the fuck?

highlights include:
– one in every 36 Hispanic adults
– one in every 15 black adults
– one in every 9 black men between 20 and 34

*American adults, not Americans in general. According to the Justice Department, one of every 130 Americans is in jail.
