White America just LOVES Black Slaves, however/wherever they can get them. We'll NEVER be free of these creeps as long as we exist in this "Corporation." The only difference between picking cotton and prison is that you don't have to pick cotton any longer. You'll dig poor peoples' graves, you'll be locked up in a cage for the duration of your time right up to your 3 consecutive lifetime sentence or your execution/death; whichever comes first.

Yes one of em escaped. They're looking for him now. It's the same thing it has always been after the abolishment of slavery -using black prisoners to work for free. It was implemented during the Black Code Laws which was designed to enforce restrictions of African Americans for simply standing around after certain hours. As a result many innocent AA were arrested and thrown in prison where massa created the Convict Leasing System where AA were held at gunpoint to do work. That was banned in...

Black men have the bodies and the strength to get the job done. These little pencil dick monkey assholes are only good for counting money. They can't pick up anything without breaking 20 bones. If they stay out in the sun for 20 minutes, they turn into crispy toasties. Most of them are wheel chair bound by age 60. They're good at picking up guns, killing each other and niggers; that's all!!!!!!
