Raphael Warnock: Prison system discriminates against people of color

The prison population is fed by a system that criminalizes poverty and incarcerates people of color at disproportionate levels. Reverend Warnock also believes that it is morally wrong and economically backward to close the doors of social re-entry on the formerly incarcerated. Reverend Warnock has spoken about the dangers of mandatory minimums, the lack of effective rehabilitative programs, and the thousands of Georgians who are in jail because they can't afford bail.
