I'm sure everyone here has read Michelle Alexander's "The New Jim Crow." If not, you should hurry up and do so. Her work documenting the impact of drug policy on poor minorities in the US had such an effect on me, that I had to write a song about it. If you have the time, please check it out. I've performed this song a bit around Lexington, KY, and the response I get is always positive. People crave messages of truth, no matter what we may think.

Thank You,
RP

Dig that quote. MLK, JR remains a foremost inspiration. He was so eloquent, and the way he tied the struggle to our morality made for such a powerful message.
