Beyoncé & Solange at 2014 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival
"I’m very proud of my sister and protective of her. Solange is the one person I will fight for. Don’t talk about my sister; don’t play with me about my sister. If you do, you’ll see another side of me. I admire her, and though she’s five years younger than me, I strive to be like her. She’s so smart and secure. She’s sensitive to people’s feelings, but not afraid of what they think."
Happy National Siblings Day!
Excited for Coolidge visiting!
KERRY I <3 YOU GIRL

I think this is how Hank could have added race into the equation: After he mentions that 41% of juveniles are incarcerated by the age of 23 (which is a horrifying statistic), he could say that people of color are overrepresented among these incarcerated juveniles. That’s it. He can break it down the way the above ACLU infographic does, but he doesn’t even have to.
I included this infographic because it is an overview, just like a 4-minute youtube video. The infographic includes many statistics similar to the ones in Hank’s video and the fact that it breaks down race — as briefly and incompletely as it does — demonstrates an anti-racist perspective.
Hank wrote that including one line about racial disparity does the topic a disservice, but if including one line is a disservice, what does that make ignoring the topic?
The fact that people of color are incarcerated at higher rates than white people doesn’t “blur the overarching theme” of the video, it is a necessary part of the discussion on mass incarceration.
