Re: Major Corporations Divest nearly $60m from Private Prison Industry After Pressure from Civil Rights Group

The Prison Industry is a good industry to invest in. If a strong percentage of Black people are in prison, the best thing to do would be to encourage private prisons and Black corporations invest in it to control the prisons and provide better living conditions and work opportunity by giving them jobs in prisons and dictating what prisons should be like. This is a step backwards. Instead of trying to prevent corporations from investing, should told them what to invest in. You had their...

Prisons should not be for-profit private industries set up to make profits based on previously guaranteeing X-amount of prisoners, which is how privatized prisons operate, receive government funding and wind up being just another Ponzi Scheme set up for the rich to make money off the misery of the poor. America's Prison Industrial Complex is a carbon copy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, where wealthy corporations and investors use their money to influence American laws, policing and...

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...

The Prison Industrial Complex Industry , and now the Treatment Industrial Complex , along with the already exixting Illness and Disease Complex Industry , are all nothing but our politicians colluding with corporations and 'money-changers' to have a way to make money off the masses at the expense of the masses, to replace all the American jobs and American production that they soldout to foreign countries and foreign interest. So, what they are doing is re-creating a Slave Plantation System...

Wow! I heard about those fraud cases...I didn't know Wells Fargo was involved. Advocates have been screaming about mass incarceration for a few years. Now it is appears to be a reality. And we're talking top rate banks i.e. Bank of America? Chase? These are main stream banks a lot of people use. I can't believe they're openly support/invest in social politics that's clearly against humanity. Yet...it is. Wonder what their mission statement is now? Will this be an acceptable "business" trend?

Excellent post.... But you know what is driving this, capitalism does not need 30, 40 percent of the working population. If they wanted to they could reduce the needed workforce a lot more but then they begin to cut into the consumers needed to buy products. White supremacy says save decent jobs for white people and then profit from those who don't fit in through law enforcement and the prison industrial system, use them for slave labor and a way to increase the transfer of tax money to the...

America’s Private Prison Industry Was Born from the Exploitation of the Slave Trade By David Love - September 3, 2016 Private prisons — those for-profit correctional facilities owned by corporations rather than the government — have their origin in the slave trade. The Federal Bureau of Prisons recently decided to phase out its contracts with private prisons due to safety issues, as the Department of Homeland Security is now reviewing the fate of privately run immigration centers.
