The Melissa Harris Perry show is smart TV. I dig it.
Lockup is boring I admit. Think of it as eating your vegetables. I'm glad some TV channel is forcing us to look at the inside of a prison so we don't forget about the million people we have locked up. We incarcerate more than any other nation. And for every 1 locked up, several more lives are affected.
It's a big business in America. A few people make a lot of money on keeping people in prison.
The whole human face of the prison system has a way of just becoming invisible unless it gets put right in front of our faces.
We should all watch prison documentaries every week. Or at least have the option if we want to.
