Surveyors on the website Survelum were asked to close their eyes and to imagine a criminal and then identify the race of this criminal, the majority clicked African-American. Why is this? Racism is embedded in the world around us. It’s carefully and deceitfully weaved into society, attacking African-American adults and children, but these racists are hard to identify. They are the media we see, the law enforcement we thought to trust, the education system we have learned from and people in general.

The year is 1965, one year after the Civil Rights act of 1964. The African American civil rights movement is shaking the United States out of its white supremacist comatose that has strategically disregarded and oppressed the rights of an entire race for centuries.

This disproportionate racial sentencing has been a growing issue the United States for four decades, and started with the Reagan Administration's War On Drugs. Private prison organizations lobby for harsher punishments, and profit from the influx of inmates.

In A Child Called It by David Pelzer, Pelzer learns how to survive abuse from his mother, and isolation from his entire family.
