The Rationalization of Racial Injustice by Bryan Stevenson

Editor’s note: The following is the foreword from Jim Wallis’ new book America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America.

“People of color in the United States, particularly young black men, are burdened with a presumption of guilt and dangerousness. Some version of what happened to me has been unfairly experienced by hundreds of thousands of black and brown people throughout this country. As a consequence of our nation’s historical failure to address the legacy of racial inequality, the presumption of guilt and the racial narrative that created it have significantly shaped every institution in American society, especially our criminal justice system.” – See more at: https://sojo.net/articles/rationalization-racial-injustice#sthash.zqgdqZTk.dpuf
