Black People : How Black America Can Free Itself From The Prison-Industrial Complex

This is a thought that came to me when I saw a video about blacks and the prison-industrial complex.

The situation is that blacks, because of the destruction of their nuclear families, represent low hanging fruit to the prison-industrial complex. Their inability to fight off incarceration (capture) results in their being routinely fed into the prison machine as a raw material. That is a one-two punch. Breaking up black families leads to crime, which leads to arrests and $entences. Leave no bed unoccupied when it can be sold to the state.

Politicians have put laws in place that keep the cells full so when they leave office they'll get a cushy no-show job or maybe a "book deal" to launder the bribe if it's big enough. This isn't ABSCAM where crooked congressmen had the decency to take bribes in paper bags in hotel rooms. () Today's politicians are sneakier.

It's important for blacks to consider the force that's driving their incarceration which leaves their sons and daughters with absent fathers. The destruction of the black nuclear family is essential in ensuring a consistent flow of bed-fillers. Pleas to politicians from the black community don't move the needle. So, what then? Violence? Riots? What can you do to disrupt this system?

The black community needs to apply the principles of Aikido to the problem. It may prove to be a feasible path out of this neo-slavery. As seen below, "Aikido focuses not on punching or kicking opponents, but rather on using their own energy to gain control of them or to throw them away from you."



The idea is to redirect the energy aimed at using black men as prison fodder and instead capture that energy and use it to elevate and restore black communities. Now, imagine being at the bottom of a pit and your tormentor comes by every day and throws a brick at you not realizing that you are going to use those bricks in a bid to escape. That's what I have in mind. The way to do it ... get this... is to enter the prison industrial complex as a competitor. Yes! Show up at the auction and buy your people out of slavery. Where do you get the money to do this?

The $40,000 or so paid to the prison-industrial complex per year can be captured and used to benefit the black community. The private prison-industrial complex can be considered a god-send instead of a curse because without their greed having established this private-public partnership, it would not be possible to transfer them to your own facility. They would be stuck in state-run facilities. To beat the prison, you have to BE the prison.

First thing would be to raise sufficient funds from black luminaries; the Oprahs, Beyonces, etc. Probably $100 million or so. Ten founders at $10m a piece should do it. As a social capitalism project, the organization would be formed as a nonprofit. The funders could hold a no-interest note for the $100 million. If this is done right, they can be paid back and the operation could self-finance.

If you were to build a 1,000 person facility, it could generate about $40m per year from a state prison-industrial complex contract. The facility could be a farm or some other type of income generating operation. It's primary purpose is to repair the damage done to the black community by making its members economically viable by providing educational resources and a way for them to work at market rate wages on site. The ultimate goal of the operation is to give the members a way to support their children.

Getting into this facility, especially the first 100, should be like trying to get on a Seal team, only the cream of the crop dedicated to the mission. The first 100 members establish the core ethos of the institution. It's the all-star team. The more disciplined they are, the more profitable the operation will be.

While rehabilitation of the member is important, the purpose of the facility is to project that rehabilitation back into the black community by harnessing the market wages earned by the members so they can be spent on supporting their children; not just child support but extras like paying for tutoring and Uber rides to get there and other extra-curriculars like sports and musical training.

This would also be a benefit to the state as it would lessen the demand for state welfare resources while providing a way to break the incarceration cycle by enhancing the member's relationship with their children. The child would know that without their father's effort and dedication none of these advantages would be possible. Instead of being ashamed that their father is incarcerated, they might be proud of him for making their lives better.

Whether it be farming or some other industry, the facility could be designed to employ members when they leave in some external capacity. If the first facility proves successful then additional sites could be financed using that template. A mass exodus from the exploiters could result. Further, this mission's name is likely to become a very valuable brand by leading the restoration of the black community.

This is a basic framework that needs to be fleshed out. Maybe you've heard of this idea before, maybe not. Seems feasible on its face.

What do you think?

Personally, I think it's a fascinating idea, however, we're closer to receiving Reparations than building a 1,000 person facility.

For example, who could we get to make this happen MintyMoes?
