Re: Masked Racism: Reflections on the Prison Industrial Complex

Kocolicious ·
To me prison has always been a new form of slavery. It restricts human growth and limits the ability to evolve....plus massa continues to get paid for human chattel. In other countries, there is no profit prisons in the way that it is here. I remember seeing an article about prison life in Sweden I think. It looked like a camp resort where prisoners couldn't leave but where allowed to work outside the prisons and return daily. I don't remember if they kept the money earned but it wasn't...

Prison is nothing but enslavement. The way to avoid it is to refrain from doing things to get your ass locked up. The entire United States of America is our imprisonment when it gets right down to the situation. Can't do a damn thing without their approval. It's a damn shame when they can tell you whether or not YOU can wear DREADLOCKS, when all they have are spider webs that can become lice infected in a heartbeat. The hair of the DOG, that most times looks better on the DOG, much better.

Has the history of the last 500 years been a record of who had technology and who didn't? If native Americans had had machine guns 500 years ago then what would have been the history of slavery in the South? So do we continue into the future letting palefaces know more and controlling education or do we continue this fixation on slavery that was just a symptom of less technological power. Young Black boys who can't repair their bicycles and are riding around without brakes need more slave...

Hey nat55. I think we also need to understand the nature of white supremacy as well. Which is the most important when we live and operate under that system today. White people are willing to do anything to maintain the perceived power. So nothing they do should surprise any of us.

As ER said, it is not only elementary school where this information is omitted. It is omitted in middle school, high school, and of course in college, unless you take it upon yourself to take an African American/African studies course. Though I’ve never taken an African/African American studies course in college, I would wager that 90% of the most pertinent information is still omitted.

Hi sunnubian , I a gree with all you say here. I chose the g rade school because in it there's already a captive audience so to speak. In other words, by law, every AA child must attend the classes set up for him or her there. One advantage is that it would eliminate the need for any of them to seek out such knowledge (libraries, book stores, etc.). Therefore, although it would be difficult, and perhaps impossible, to overcome the opposition to get such a plan implemented, I believe that It...

It all boils down to very simple psychology; First you brain wash the people [wash their brain clean] then you have a "Blank Slate" to indocrinate their brain with whatever it is that you want them to believe, think, fear, love, hate, desire, or be indifferent to, creating a "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy" effect that insures the indoctrination(s) will be carried out by those people.

It doesn't matter whether you go to a White institution or a Black institution, when the education is obtained, it's never as good as white folks' education, in their eyes, and when the diploma's in your hands, you're going to end up working for WHITE people getting the salary they think's appropriate for you and more than likely will be less than the white persons employed there doing the same chores you are.
