    The Criminal justice System hold crimes aganist black people for 20 to 30 years excluding them from jobs and social programs. If we remove the criminal branding system will this change the anti-snitching policy in the ghetto?


    What is the difference between Police blue wall of silence and Anti-snitching?

    first of all the hip hop generation has it's good points and it has it's bad points.
    I grew up inthe pimp player generation of the 70s, we had allusions about that we bragged lies and hype to each other about that, and we dressed like that at 16 17 years old, cuffed bell bottoms, big collar shirts, platform 2 tone shoes, big hats sometimes walking sticks, maxi coats, and whenwe went out 3 piece suits, that was the norm;
    But we reffred to our women as sister, respected them, did not bring that facade to them or abuse them physically or verbally as this generation does
    and never called anyone the B word
    with over 12 gangs in Brooklyn alone, we did not see or experience the violence one sees today, nor the drug slingin.
    maybe there were some guys selling joints in movie theaters, but drug dealing was done down low, by old guys in bars,
    and no one was all up into fighting, we were too busy trying to find the next basement party, or who the new girl in school is so we could test our rap.
    I went from freshman to senior without seeing or experiencing a single fight

    and no one, and I mean no one used the N word

    We knew that do for self meant the collective
    not what today's hip hop generation say do for their personal self and the hell with everyone else in the community

    We knew that the term snitching was informing on a Panther or anyone in a Black organization
    Not informing on a rapist, murderer, child molester, wifew beater, or drug dealer, called the pusher man back then

    The sad fact of the matter is that the prison industrial complex has been the biggest equal opportunity employer

    in every state and city the police, parole office, corrections, court officers, provide gainfull employment to hundreds of thousands of Black men and women and some of who were at one time or another on the other side of the law

    However there has rarely been a real analysis of the necessity of crime within capitalism;

    Crimes themselves, increase insurance rates and bailout the insurance industry

    drug dealing is allowed in the Black community to encourage Blacks to move out and sell their homes, leaving a politically non astute poor population, left as prey to con man leaders and con men local politicians who make deals to set the wheels of regentrification to occur


    Rangel did that in Harlem
    Once enough whites move into the area big sweeps are made and the drug situation is eventually eradicated

    Now in regards to folks telling the authorities information about drug slinging,
    let's look at the alternatives
    do not tell or report it ,
    make the community unsafe for children to play or folks to shop, without worrying about getting shot,


    or us do the patrolling ourselves?
    but do understand "they" are more organized then we could start organizing, or try to even catch up to,
    and in many cases are protected!

    peace

    They have their laws and we in the ghetto see them as unjust, which brought about our own set of inner city laws and one of them happens to be "no snitching"......

    the problem is that it used to be low before, meaning no the police did not know there was such a law in the ghetto because it was never spoken of, a brother or sister just kept their mouths shut.... you've even seen it in black exploitation movies like "crossing 110th Street", when the police show up to a crime scene and start asking questions, people start walking away!

    Now that it has been brought to the light by some rap artist's, like Camron, Fat Joe and 50 cent (all of which are SNITCHES by the way) I would humbly suggest that it was the police in NY who started the "stop snitching" campaign......

    peace


    that would work too, but what if you are asked to snitch on someone in our community who is positive and guiding folks away from drugs and criminal activity?

    Police don't care what you snitch about, just as long as you are snitching! Especially, if you are snitching on someone or group who is trying to uplift our communities.....& there is a long list of examples!

    There is a million plus blacks in prison,parole or probation so I see no problem with snitching. Black people snitch a whole hell of alot.

    I would like to see police snitch on eachother

    They must not be all that positive if they did something worthy of telling law enforcement.
