Re: ‘New Jim Crow’ author Michelle Alexander has a warning about Trump’s America

She didn't get that this extreme election was not the usual BS. She helped Trump win by everywhere saying Clinton did not deserve our vote. Now she got it. …. talking to myself here….best thing I can do now is keep focused on positive and constructive projects.

I noticed that a lot of famous, etc., Black people where going around saying no one should vote for Clinton, or like Dave Chappell, when asked if he was going to vote, saying sh!t like, "What the hell for?" I didn't like her "super predator" reference either [though what was disseminated did not show all of it, where she was literally repeating what she had been told by someone else], but even if she said it outright and/or it was a term, phrase that she made up herself or she was expressing...

Nope! Not surprised. More like...expected. White folks have been suppporting themselves, even if one commits mass murder, since the days of the Mamuluks in Egypt. They have managed to keep this form of brotherhood for hundreds of years. Otherwise, who would give a murderer $150,000 to fight a case that accuses him of killing a child? Who would do that? Massa.

True slavery has existed longer than freeedom. In fact, slavery have been HERE in the world since the beginning of time-which includes EVERYBODY....Europeans too. But! The difference in African slavery I see opposed to others who have been enslaved are the facts that we were/are the ONLY ones targeted and specificially taken from our lands for sole purposes of profit and sex. Hence the ideology of being a degraded form of chattel property. African women and children have always been on the...

You will not escape the internal logic of Capitalism unless you directly challenge it as a system. Notice that while the title of the article suggest corruption while the article itself walks through the logical outcomes when "the concept of treating inmates as commodities that must be grown for profit." Whenever you read words like "marketplace" and "incentives" dealing with any aspect of a social service.....people would be wise to through up a red flag.
