US has 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of the world’s prisoners.
In this episode, we speak about the Netflix Documentary, 13th, which explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation's prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans.
The documentary shows how the adoption of the 13th Amendment transitioned African Americans from being enslaved in the past to a new age slavery due to a loophole that abolished slavery for everyone except criminals.
You can watch the documentary through Netflix by searching, '13th by Ava Duvernay' in the search bar in Netflix.
