Why Are So Many Black Men In Prison? A Comprehensive Account Of How And Why The Prison Industry Has Become A Predatory Entity In The Lives Of African-American Men

Please see Demico's websites  This book Can also be brought on 

Here are a couple reviews of People that have read this book

****Demico Boothe has explored the reasons so many black men are indeed in prison in, WHY ARE SO MANY BLACK MEN IN PRISON? He begins with his own story of a shaky upbringing and his subsequent dabbling in drug dealing. He was caught with a few grams of crack cocaine but because it was the dreaded crack, he was given 10 years in prison. When he left prison after serving his time, he was actually railroaded back into prison by a crooked justice system. He delves deeply into our justice system and the motives behind all the new prisons that are being built. He gives succinct and reasonable views of exactly what is happening now in the United States and how the past has played a role in the present. He uses persuasive statistics regarding the number of black men in prison as compared to the number of white men who are incarcerated. Demico Boothe has done an excellent job of researching his subject and it is a plus, if unfortunate for him, that he has actually experienced first hand what he's talking about.*****

**** Mr. Demico's book is a must-read for anyone concerned about young African American men. Although I did not agree with every conclusion he reached, Demico's main premises are convincing. As a white woman who teaches mainly students of color, I am always impressed, and often in awe, of those young men who reach college with so much going against them. Demico's books lays bare not only the horrible inequalities of our society, but also the racist attitudes of our political system - - Democrats, Republicans, and most everyone in between.*****







Getting Out & Staying Out:- A Black Man's Guide to Success After Prison. This book can also be brought at and

A couple reviews of people who have read the book

****This guide takes a very honest and realistic viewpoint of life after incarceration for black men, and offers some useful and positive advice. I personally love self-help books that are written by those with real direct experience instead of so-called "professionals" who have no real experience with their topics. This author served substantial time in prison and has obviously turned his life circumstances around and become an entrepreneur and bestselling author, and that is to be commended and should be put forth as an example for other black men who have been incarcerated to observe and perhaps emulate. Highly recommended for institutional use as well.****

****Highly recommended for incarcerated black men and those who were incarcerated before. Simple but invaluable advice from someone who has been there literally****
