    There was (is) a condition, a disorder, and an experiment, which existed two-three hundred years ago. It sucked the souls out of African people.

    It stripped them from their beliefs and culture. It degraded their dignity, trapped and demobilized them in chains and shackles.

    It exempted their liberty leaving nothing but skeletal images behind.

    These images however were animated, and strong. But they were emotional and spiritually dead

    This condition, disorder, experiment was the rape of Africa

    It was the alienation of black people and their culture

    It mutilated their lives.

    Now, tell me what was the meaning of 4th of July in 1776 to an African Slave?

    What is 4th of July today to an African-American?

    If so-called freedom still prevails why is it that our right to vote is still a bill and not a law?

    Why does Massa still have commercial slavery in the 21st century?

    Why are more jails or barracks being built to house the unwanted
    black population? ---Peace----

    Why???

    Because it means free labor (which is how america was built). Where/How else can companies get young, strong, black males and females to work for them at virtualy no cost? If a thing isn't broke, why fix it? Here's a great article that addresses this issue, it is found on the site, The Talking Drum:

    The Prison Industrial Complex.

    I did a search on google and it came up with quite a few links regarding corporations using prison labor, check them out here:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=companies+using+prison+labor

    I am also including an excerpt from one of the articles I found by Angela Davis, which lists a few of the companies using prison labor. You can read it in its entirety at the following link:

    Masked Racism: Reflections on the Prison Industrial Complex

    What business would not take advantage of this pot of gold if they could?
