Van Jones on How The Criminal Justice System Targets Communities of Color
In this clip, Van Jones talks about how the United States imprisons more people than any country, and how that’s hurting communities.
“You got people who are doing more drugs on college campuses, yacht clubs, country clubs, we all know that’s goin on.
But the SWAT team never shows up there. The SWAT team shows up in the housing project where you got poorer people doing fewer drugs and those people will go to prison.”
