The fact of the matter is that prisons ARE being built for profit and who better to incarcerate, inRead More another form of modern day slavery, than putting minorities in jail. Studies are abundant that show there is a pathway of putting young black people out of schools, expelled for the same act a non-black child gets suspended for. And p.s., the schools in inner cities are set up to fail, lack of teachers,funding, books,etc., so you can say 'see, they just don't want to learn." Thus starts the path to prison, no education, no training programs, no jobs in concentrated minority areas, no future, stricter laws for low gauged infractions, etc. But when the rich and privileged are in court they can either go to a rehab. or sentenced to community service or probation with no time served due to 'affluencesa' or 'prison would not be go for my client'. The public education system is on its way to privatization such as the prison system because we are now an oligarchy! These moronic responses show how America is still not willing to accept or change the demonization of black people. Brought over and enslaved for over 400 years; freed in 1865 to 1965 with no rights. Still being subject to discrimination but the easy answer is they are lazy, thugs. The reality is American was started by a bunch of lawless yahoo's who still tell you to think non-whites are superior and all others are inferior. Raped, pillaged, murdered over 20 million Native American's but the quick response in the fall to....drugs, minorities,illegal immigrants, etc. The system is set up this way so you feel more comfortable not facing the fact that those you admire or tell you what you want to hear, so that you don't have to look to the core of how this country was founded. Prisons are just another form of slavery!
