The Injustice System in America is a documentary that uncovers the unfairness in the United States justice system. The film sheds light on startling facts about the inmate population, including the large number of incarcerated African Americans. Although they only make up 13% of the population, African Americans account for 49% of all prisoners. Similarly, 17% of all inmates are Hispanic, but they only comprise 10% of the population in the United States. There is also a discrepancy between the number of upper-class white citizens who deal drugs and the type of punishment they receive compared to minority offenders. The documentary includes discussions from Jeff Adachi, a San Francisco public defender, as well as Van Jones of the Ella Barker Center, Michelle Alexander from Stanford Law School and Vernell Critendon of the San Quentin Prison. Released in 2007, The Injustice System in America is written and directed by Cary Silberman, the producer of the well-known documentary La Senora Eva Peron. It has a run time of 123 minutes.moreless
