Re: The Treatment Industrial Complex

Prison is nothing but a continuation of non-stop slavery. No more; no less. The same things that transpired on the Plantations transpires in every prison in the U.S. and elsewhere the Caucasoids are in charge; which is damn near EVERYWHERE. They're like those little blind cave fishes. Saw two white brothers taking white folks on Safaris in Africa, no less. They looked stupid as hell, and I won't be seeing that show again. They can't keep their Snow Balled behinds OUT OF AFRICA or anywhere...
