    The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
    this proof it's not dead nore gone we still face this and it shows
    black men / women who get out of prison are targets and held to failure
    she speaks truth ........sistah Professor Michelle Alexander discusses the
    systematic incarceration of African American males and how it authorizes
    discrimination after their release. This program was recorded by Chicago
    Access Network Television (CAN TV )

    What hurts the most is that we are aware , we know this truth
    but yet we refused to take steps / action and or put forth effort
    to change but watch to see who will the true hero one seek is
    within thee........Oneself is the difference to change.

    Michelle Alexander. whom is a civil rights attorney. in her speech she
    says "THERE ARE MORE BLACK MEN IN PRISON THAN SLAVES DURING
    SLAVERY." she also says that America isn't color blind like we've been
    convinced. SHE ALSO SAYS THAT BLACK MEN HAVE BEEN TARGETED
    AND FORCED INTO PERMANENT 2ND CLASS CITIZENSHIP BY DEFAULT
    OF FELONY. NO JOBS NO HOUSING WITH A FELONY. SOME STATES NO
    FOOD STAMPS WITH A FELONY. """ I just want my brothers to kno that
    we have an unseen enemy. I want my sisters to that yeah they want us
    so broke and y'all so materialistic we could never share happy home.
    SO THE CYCLE WILL CONTINUE

    Less we start to change and move back away from the system
    bring there cages call cells to a close and end our self destruction
    they have us profiled for failure.......what are you ready to do ???
