Not at all shocking. Michelle Alexandria discusses how even Black people got caught up in the perception of criminality. Older people call it "the undesirables".

Aint that the truth. Now it would be something totally amazing if those guys in prison for weed distribution was suddenly released now that America is decriminalizing marijuna. But! Nannnn. They are not gonna do that cuz it is too much money per inmate, per year. Nope. This is a billion dollar industry. So no get outta jail card. It is sooooooo tragic and unfair in ways that can leave one speechless and completely distrustful in regarding social justice. But!

Our Justice System is Broken 1 out of every 100 Americans is behind bars. The U.S. spends $80 billion a year on incarceration. 70 million Americans have a criminal record.

This is the truth. Black people in positions of authority are often worse than White people in positions of authority because Black people are constantly trying to prove to White people that they are not "race conscious" or even worse, they try to prove to White people they are on their side or even worst than that, they enjoy power and don't mind wielding it against their own race's best interest.

Most Black teachers do, as far as our children are concerned, the same things that Black cops as far as Black people in general are concerned; which is. join in on the harassment, discriminatory practices and condescension, and hold contempt for and stereotype Black students.

The Prison Industrial System isn't built to house them; it's built by them to house us. There are cages for all the wild 4 legged mainly from Africa and cages for the 2 legged which is us. There's absolutely no difference between the cages nor the "keepers." Keepers/Wardens; Weapons more or less the same as are the sentences.

They sentence our children to prisons for long lengths of time for more or less nothing. They'd never allow Blacks to do that to their children; they'd blow us ALL AWAY. All we can do is sing that damn "We Shall Overcome", lips flapping all over the joint, when we haven't overcome a fucking thing; it's just a 500 year CONTINUATION. We're going to do what THEY SAY or DIE. They have no qualms about sending ANYONE on the planet 6 feet under or splattering them into spaghetti in a heartbeat. D.

Thank you Sista appreciate the grace. Yeah I have given Obama a lot of benefit of the doubt the first 2 years when he had majority power in both houses. The reason he lost the House in 2010 was because he turn out to be an establishment servant like no other in history and it demoralized the liberal base. I still voted in 2010 and knew in my heart he was not what he claim to be. I kinda think he wanted to lose the House so it would be cover for his following establishment policies.
