In slavery at its peak - by Ted Rudow III, MA
In 1991 there were about one million Americans behind bars. By 2012 the number was over 2.2 million, a more than 100 percent increase. Our prison population, in fact, is now the biggest in the history of human civilization. There are more people in the United States either on parole or in jail today (around 6 million total) than there ever were at any time in Stalin’s gulags. For what it’s worth, there are also more black men in jail right now than there were in slavery at its peak.
