When it comes to the mainstream media, there has been increased representation of unjust systems functioning in the US, such as the prison industrial complex in Orange is the New Black. But, many of these shows fail to do much more than skim the surface of these issues because they do not want to make their mainstream audience uncomfortable. Lately, I have noticed that the cast of Orange is the New Back has done a good job being vocal about the real world problems of the prison industry and I wanted to share some of what they had to day here:
