The New Jim Crow

Masseninhaftierung und Rassismus in den USA

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.

Why buy a book you can download for free? We print this book so you don't have to. First you gotta find a good clean (legible) copy and make sure it's the latest version (not always easy). Some documents found on the web are missing some pages or the image quality is so poor, they are difficult to read. We look over each document carefully and replace poor quality images by going back to the original source document. We proof each document to make sure it's all there - including all changes. If you find a good copy, you could print it using a network printer you share with 100 other people (typically its either out of paper or toner). If it's just a 10-page document, no problem, but if it's 250-pages, you will need to punch 3 holes in all those pages and put it in a 3-ring binder. Takes at least an hour. It's much more cost-effective to just order the latest version from Amazon.com This book includes original commentary which is copyright material.

1998 erblickte einer der einflussreichsten Internetkonzerne das Licht der Welt. Einer, der nicht nur die IT-Welt eroberte, sondern es obendrein geschafft hat, einen eigenen Begriff zu prägen. Googeln schaffte es sogar in den Duden. Die Suchmaschine ist heute für Millionen Menschen die Anlaufstelle Nummer 1, wenn es um die Beschaffung von Informationen geht. Und von der ersten Stunde an dabei war Google-Mitarbeiter Nr. 59, Douglas Edwards. Mit viel Humor berichtet er von den Anfängen, der ganz eigenen Google-Kultur und seinen ganz persönlichen Erfahrungen in der sehr speziellen Welt eines Internet-Start-ups auf dem Weg zum Global Player. Er beschreibt, wie Larry Page und Sergey Brin mit Eigensinn und einer leichten Arroganz Google dahin brachten, wo Google heute ist und wofür Google steht. Atmen wir quasi die Google-Luft in der Konzernzentrale und begeben uns mit Douglas Edwards auf die Reise durch das Google-Imperium. Dabei erzählt er uns viele persönliche Geschichten darüber, wie es ist, im wohl eigenwilligsten Konzern der Welt zu arbeiten.

The Past Predicts The Future: Criminal History and Recidivism of Federal Offenders

The focus of this report is the 25,431 U.S. citizen federal offenders released from prison or placed on probation in calendar year 2005. Recidivism refers to a person's relapse into criminal behavior, often after the person receives sanctions or undergoes interventions for a previous crime. Recidivism is typically measured by criminal acts that resulted in the re-arrest, re-conviction, and/or re-incarceration of the offender over a specified period of time. Recent developments, particularly public attention to the size of the federal prison population and the cost of incarceration have refocused the Commission's interest on the recidivism of federal offenders. This report takes into account chapters four and two of the Guidelines Manual (ISBN: 9780160934896) in establishing the Commission's methods for evaluation. Scoring points for evaluation of the study group, and criminal history category identification. The Appendix comprised of tables and figures section offers the Study group's offender race, median age, re-conviction rates, re-incarceration rates, offenses categories, and more.

Zieht "The Donald" ins Weiße Haus? Für seine Fans verheißt er die Rückkehr goldener Zeiten. Für seine Gegner ist er wahlweise ein Lügner, ein Großmaul, ein Demagoge, ein Rassist oder vieles mehr. Ganz egal, wie man zu ihm steht – der Immobilien-Tycoon ist dem mächtigsten Amt der Welt bereits näher gekommen, als alle es für möglich gehalten hätten. Zeit also, sich zumindest einmal mit seinen Ansichten vertraut zu machen. Diese finden sich in seinem aktuellen Buch, in dem er, wen wundert's, darlegt, wie er sein geschundenes Land wieder zu alter Größe führen kann. Ein Buch das polarisieren wird. Ein Buch, das man gelesen haben sollte, um über die Person Donald Trump mitreden zu können.

Ein ehrliches Versprechen Als Dan Harris während der Moderation von »Good Morning America« vor laufender Kamera eine Panikattacke erleidet, ist ihm klar, dass er etwas ändern muss. Zeit seines Lebens ein Skeptiker, lässt er sich auf eine Interviewserie mit bedeutenden spirituellen Lehrern ein: Eckart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Mark Epstein, Joseph Goldstein, Jon Kabat-Zinn, dem Dalai Lama und Sharon Salzberg. Dabei erfährt er einiges über Achtsamkeit. Harris erkennt, dass er die Stimme in seinem Kopf besiegen muss, die ihn immer mehr unter Stress setzt. Und heute weiß er: Durchatmen und Innehalten kann wirklich helfen.
