I know that it used to be that a person could not be locked up for a debt owed, but now? These "States" have been quietly making their own laws, many of which are unconstitutional, so it now may depend on exactly which state you happen to live in as to whether or not a creditor can have you locked up. The same with wage garnishment. Wage garnishment was made unlawful, now I see, that it is no longer against the law for creditors to garnish people wages.

It would be wonderful if Black people realized that there was non-violent face to the Civil Rights movement as well as a self-defense/armed side also. The way that the white media has spun as if there was some sort of opposing view between the two and that the non-violent philosophy is far superior. When in fact they worked hand in hand for what they felt would be black liberation and to get white people off our backs.
