Abstract:

"Prisons will not protect you critically analyzes the prison industrial complex and the inequality and violence perpetuated by hate crime legislation. This archival anthology provides the history of this legislative panacea and interrogates the gay community's unquestioned loyalty to the prison industrial complex. It argues that hate crime legislation does not address actual causes of harm and violence and, instead, funnels massive numbers of people into the profit-driven prison system"--Page 4 of cover.
