    Author and former A.C.L.U. attorney Michelle Alexander has a new book coming out.

    "THE NEW 'JIM CROW' ": Mass Incarceration in a Colored Blind Society

    States that the overwhelming incarceration of blacks are not due to them committing violent offenses. But in fact, are due to being caught riding dirty. Especially if they are caught with a small amount of crack cocaine. The prison population has pentupled because of this. Many arrests involved people who just didnt know their rights.

    The people getting caught up in these sweeps make numbers look good. But they are packing us in jails for essentially petty crimes.

    The moral of this is, dont ride dirty and know your rights.

    hey you do the crime, you do the time.. I don't have a problem with folks
    with dope getting locked up.. I have a problem with administrative citations
    turning into warrants.. folks going to jail for tickets.. how can you pay
    the tickets if you are locked up? being locked up affects your ability to ever
    get another job.. so locking up a man for child support or anything
    administrative.. is shooting yourself and him in the foot.. is crazy... it
    would be different if they went to a different kind of jail.. but to put folks
    in the same place with hardened criminals because they didn't have the
    money to pay a ticket should be criminal.. I don't even get why cops pull
    folks over for administrative things.. tags? send them a citation in the
    mail.. let the meter maids do that.. cops should be dealing with real crime,
    not writing tickets for tags.. go down to 88th and Holly and get out the
    car and stand there.. Go down to the gas station and 90th and
    Bancroft and stand their.. go deal with some real shi*..

    Ashe'

    James from Philly made apoint of wisdom in that we must go back to what we were trying to do in the 70s

    impart a knowledge of self in our children!
    as well as a knowledge of the traps and tricks of white supremacy

    so we do not repeat the same mistakes time after time, generation after generation

    I have mentored in the schools since the late 70s. In fact, I cofounded a large ( city wide ) one. Many of our children arent being raised. They have little to no home training. Moreover, the parents dont want you talking to their kids.

    When I talk about this cycle, I get called names. But until we talk about it str8 on, nothing will change.

    Of course it doesn't happen. Why would that happen? That never will
    happen no matter how many books folks write.. it wouldn't even happen
    if all the judges were black.. or if all the cops were suddenly black..
