Using the concept of criminalism, this paper addresses the disjunction in the sentencing and prosecution of bodies read as young, racialized as Black, and seen as male. Specifically, using the 2016 Survey of Prison Inmates (SPI), this thesis examines differences in sentence length across multiple intersecting statuses, institutions, and geographies as an empirical outcome. Results demonstrate a significant positive association between being read as young, racialized as Black, seen as male, and punishment in the extremes.
