On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to author and associate professor, Erik Nielson, about the criminalization of Rap.
Erik Nielson and Andrea L. Dennis co-authored Rap on Trial – Race, Lyrics, and Guilt in America. The groundbreaking expose shows how for over three decades the criminal justice system has used rap lyrics to justify arrest, prosecution and incarceration of increasing numbers of artistic young men of color.
