Articles like this is why I read the Nation. Bravo, Michelle Alexander! I am not surprised you got so many comments. I've read some of them and would like to respond to Lara De Luz, Maria Schafer, Gordon Spencer, and Kay Sieverding. Re: African American support for Clinton: they are voting for the devil they know rather than the one they don't. They remember Jesse Jackson's two ill-fated campaigns and realize Sanders is much more like him than Clinton and so, while she doesn't deserve it, Clinton has gotten their votes. To Kay, I know firsthand what you have gone through and there is no justice in American courts for ordinary people. That system is even more corrupt than our politics, if that is possible.
