How Mandatory Minimums Forced Me to Send More Than 1,000 Nonviolent Drug Offenders to Federal Prison Judge Mark W. Bennett October 24, 2012 Reuters/Joshua Lott   Growing up in blue collar Circle Pines, Minnesota, in the 1950s, raised by parents from the “Greatest Generation,” I dreamed only of becoming a civil rights lawyer. My passion for justice was hard-wired into my DNA. Never could I have imagined that by the end of my 50s, after nineteen years as one of 678 federal district court...

Unfortunately there are soooooo many unsung stories like this. And there are happening right here in the United States of America. That's why I believe if you just listen to an African person....you'd be surprised how they ended up here. But massa is great with dividing and conquering our socialization with our own people. A lot of us won't even bother cuz we have been trained to see them as our enemy-our own people! So yeah...this type of "study program" deemed student exchange opportunity...

White folks are NOT the strongest one-on-one. That's why they have to have guns. Otherwise THEY'D GET THEIR ASSES BEAT big time. Africans appear as some kind of human work horses to "white" folks. That's why we're in the situation we're in everywhere. Most of us are built and are strong; not all; most!!! Africa should FORBID anyone taking any of their people anywhere including the Hoko (whaeva) folks, Arabs, ANYONE. Leave Africa's people alone. ALL OF THEM. Do your own damn work. Don't you...

What this really is, is evidence of how racists obtain positions of authority, particularly in the courtrooms, on the bench, in police departments and throughout America's criminal justice system primarily to continue the southern jim crow system that is only "technically" been outlawed and only been outlawed on paper.

Seeing as to how Africans in America have garnered no respect since we've been in this country for the past 500 years and have suffered all kinds of brutality while living here, what would happen if 43 million Africans in America decided to take all our qualms to the WORLD COURT??
