COVID and increasing police brutality has only further proved the urgency of my recent book "Black in America: The Paradox of the Color Line." 

The disproportionate effects of COVID on Black communities and the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tony McDade and Ahmaud Arbery further clarifies that the foundation of our system based on racism and classism is flawed.

The recent rebellions across the nation teaches us that reform is not enough — and that we as a country need to push the abolition of our criminal justice system, among others. 

This Voice was originally published in 2020. At the time of publication, and presently, Jackson is an associate professor of Sociology
