"Its provisions implemented many things, including a "three strikes" mandatory life sentence for repeat offenders and an expansion of death penalty-eligible offences." !!!

"The Clinton administration knew that the criminal justice system was deeply unfair and biased against African Americans, and chose to expand that system." !!!

actually Congress passes, the President signs........and at the time many persons of all races (not all though) thought it was the thing to do, the one exception was Jesse Jackson.......by the way Bernie Sanders also voted for it, if you want to use this as an excuse to be blameful......reservations or no........
