    DON’T JIM CROW ME BRO
    By Andre Austin

    Wade in the water, children
    God’s a-gonna trouble the water

    The same amount of slaves in shackles in 1850 we now have black men in prison, parole, probation or jail. Jim Crow wings have never been clipped or ended its been redesigned.

    That’s right Jack
    Jim Crow is back.

    Jim Crow came into existence in part when white corporation elites didn’t like former slaves getting into alliance with poor whites for economic justice. The whites chose their racial status instead of economic interest. Once your labeled a felon you are branded with a number just like a slave or a Jim Crow law barring you from jobs, voting, on juries, education loans, public housing, food stamps so that you go back to the revolving prison gate to give poor whites employment.

    We must unmask the color-blindness, Post racial lies and become color-consciences so we can see the new racial caste system and its control over black peoples destiny. Color blindness produces a racial indifference to mass incarceration and disparities. The Nixon Southern Strategy of law and order and Reagan war on drugs in 1982 (pre-crack era) were not about crime control but race politics. If these same white mayors and white police chiefs ran raids, stings and entrapment operations on college campus against white kids abusing drugs they would loose their jobs. Whites sell and use more drugs than blacks but its only people of color being sent to the prison plantation. Crime rates do not match up with incarceration rates

    So what are the solutions to end the madness of mass incarceration?:

    1. Civil rights need to change their own views and attitudes of convicts
    2. Political pressure to change laws
    3. Black masses must put feet into the streets. The rich buy their influence with campaign donation, the poor buy influence with marching, protest, boycotts and screaming.

    Civil rights organization steer clear of convicted inmates because they confirm and reinforce racial stereotypes they are trying to eliminate. Unless a person is totally innocent and helps to uplift and defy racial stereotypes civil rights groups will not help with lawsuits. Case in point before Rosa Parks they had opportunity to help black females with discrimination in transportation but their was teenage pregnancy and alcohol abuse.

    We must uplift the stigma of convicted felons so that we can have care, compassion, concern. All of us have broken the law, but not all of us got caught. According to Obama book about the homecoming and dreams of his father in Kenya, Africa he experimented with an assortment of drugs in white Hawaii and on white campuses that were shielded from police raids and surveillances. If Obama would have got caught with those drugs he couldn’t be sleeping now in the White House because the Jim Crow laws forbid it. Its not a war on drugs but a war on black people.

    Jim Crow is back
    And it ain’t about Crack

    BLACK EMPOWERMENT PLAN
    By Andre Austin

    What is the Master Plan Obama didn’t know or talk about to the CBC?
    Well this is and what it isn’t.

    Blacks have inherited a failed plan of the 1960’s from the NAACP. With five major flaws.

    1. No Black unity while opting for multi-coalitions becoming a horse instead of its rider.
    2. Misled to believe eliminating symbols of Jim Crow that racism would become dead.
    3. Thought integration would make us equal and give them control over resources and power.

    4. No long-term goals/plan for social, economic, political dynasties transferring to never ending generational lines. There is no master plan. A black lawyer, doctor, teacher, scientist must pass on his/her accumulated knowledge to a family member or mentor outside of his nest to build a indestructible bridge to wealth and power.

    5. NAACP must start representing the good, bad and the ugly to uplift the whole community and stop fearing that our bad apples reinforce the stereotypes we are trying to eliminate. This means they must fight Jim Crow in the prison industrial complex.

    How do you like this Black Empowerment Plan.

    America is the most incarcerated society with over 2 million Americans currently behind bars. Out of the 2 million inmates, more than 900,000 are African Americans. The rate at which blacks are incarcerated continues to rise day in day out. This disproportionate incarceration based on race proves the injustice of the American criminal justice system. Racism plays a vital role in determining the composition of the inmates, the kind of treatment inmates receive and the punishments that are meted against them. In short, racism is embedded throughout the American criminal justice process. Lets take the "War on Drugs" for instance, it is seen by many not as a war against illicit drugs but as a war against the black community. Many blacks have ended up behind bars and suffered severe punishment due to this war. The Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1998 has made it so that individuals convicted of possessing and dealing in powder cocaine receive a lesser punishment than individuals convicted of possessing and dealing in crack cocaine.

    My question is,if we know this,why do we continue to follow this path that leads to jail or death?

    Peace!

    I dont think young african-americans know the trap they get into until after they get into it. Young people dont know the long term effects of their miskates. Parents and mentors have to teach them.

    I agree,I once knew this sista that told me that she was going to start selling weed. I asked her how much would she make after selling someone's else drugs?
    She told me $50,I told her that it wasn't worth it because it's going to cost more than that to bail you out of jail. Then look at the damage you are doing to us as a race,you are perpetuating that view that many whites have that this is all the black race can do.

    You are correct,many people don't see the far reaching effects of their actions.

    Peace!

    Just look at Paris Hilton caught with drugs now she can't travel to Japan and other countries for the rest of her life.

    The dope isn't worth it it restricts your freedom of movement
