Theoretical articulations of governmentality, and discipline and punishment are central to understanding policing and the state’s production of disciplined subjects throughout society. However, incidents of state violence result in specific forms of racialized and gendered discipline and punishment practices that target Black women and girls. This article introduces, neo-capital punishment ideology, a theoretical construct, described as indocile acts displayed by Black women and girls which result in neither institutionally sanctioned nor legally justified discipline. Through an analysis of the Black Lives Matter movement, discourse, media, and school discipline policies and practices, this article explores how unjustified punishment against Black women and girls remains invisible and normalizes their multi-marginalized position in society.
