The Criminal justice systems approval of racial prejudice is justified by past perceptions and beliefs about African American. While the nation has slowly recognized the significance of electing the first African American man as President, clearly societal issues of race are still a familiar complication forthe Samaritans of the United States. The statement "tough on crime" was a disguise to discreetly disrupt and destroy the African Americans family structure and values. Mass incarceration is a result of neglecting the issue at front. Why is the prison system and justice system altogether annihilating the blackcommunity and confining the African American ethnic group from the reputation as being seen as valuable?The disguised loophole that created the undervalued reputation of African Americans began when the
differences of blacks were overlooked by Caucasians. This then created a discriminating event that we now call "slavery". The barbaric actions slaves witnessed shocked a small amount of society's mind, which contributed to the 245 years of active slavery. Fortuitously, President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation declaring that any persons being held as a slave are henceforward "free".
