The House I Live In {movie}

Eye-opening documentary about the war on drugs.

From the film:

Well, in any war, you’ve got to have an enemy. And when you think about the impact, particularly on poor people of color, you know, there are more African-Americans under correctional control today, in prisoner jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850, a decade before the Civil War began. And that’s something we haven’t been willing to look in the mirror and ask ourselves. What’s really going on? —Michelle Alexander
