    THE NEW JIM CROW: Prison Industrial Complex
    By Andre Austin

    The 13th Amendment didn’t end slavery. There is a loophole, exception if you are in prison the state can make and you are a slave. However, the punishment of felons do not begin at the prison gate its adjusted at the release and parole. racial prison caste system at the gate opening and release. If black and white sales/use of drugs are the same then why 60% of blacks go to prison. Because its not political correct to concentrate the police state on white crime. I’d rather be rich and guilty than poor and innocent. And that’s the stone cold truth.

    The Objective: To exclude as many people of color from Jobs and social programs as possible.

    JIM CROW:

    Inmates Prison ID numbers # as effective as being branded a slave

    A. Felony conviction equals exclusion if selling drugs
    1. Public Housing
    2. Food Stamps
    3. Many Jobs
    4. Pell grants for College
    5. Cant Vote
    6. Can’t serve as a juror=a hallmark of a citizen

    Without the above resources its impossible to reform and rehabilitate a prison and transition them as citizens in the community. So basically the Southern Strategy of Law & Order and Reagan’s war on Drugs in 1982= a war on black people to permanently exclude them from the political, social and economic game in America. The result, is less competitors white males/females have to compete for jobs. So now having a prison record 10,15 20 years ago will still exclude your rights of having the 13th 14th and 15th amendments apply to you. Basically this is what Jim Crow, Black Codes and the terrorists acts of the KKK did to black people ever since we landed here in 1555 or 1619.The punishment for blacks start when the leave prison. We have immunized the court system to have a racial bias against blacks.

    THE ANTIDOTE:

    Imagine yourself in a bird cage with all of the below numbers being one steel bar going around and trapping you in:

    1. Census Count all inmates from where they originally lived and did crime. This would take away the motivation of the State to build prisons in rural all white communities.

    2. Gas card subsidies for working poor to get jobs in all white communities

    3. Ban all Credit reports used to exclude blacks from jobs.

    4. Automatic Expungement for crimes after 7 years except for murder, rape

    5. End debtors prison for Child Support delinquents and receive payment credits if they were involved with baby sitting their own kids and participated in their education.

    6. End all exclusion of food stamps, public housing and education grants for former felons.

    7. Stop allowing police to use unofficial records of citizens being accused of crimes or suspected of crimes from transferring that information to employers.

    8. Stop all Hollywood and Political parties from stereotyping blacks as criminals, pimps and theives. A white excutive watching TV and laughing at blacks at night is the same guy interviewing us for jobs at 9am in the morning.

    It means nothing to have a Black president if there is no hope and change for the black masses

    Woah.... you mean prison doesn't correct the errant behavior that got you in there in the first place?

    Wow, that's news. I thought that was why they were called 'correctional facilities.' :em3700:

    I'm wondering... they give those ID #'s out in jail. I wonder if you get the same ID # when you go to prison.

    how about trying to stay out of Jail. we get about a 100 deportes a month back here because they are too stupid to realize what they were given, and they are not smart enough to take advantage of it. These are Dominicans that made it through the visa jungle, either by luck, family etc. some young and some older, and instead of trying to get dual citizenship, they opt to keep their residency and break the law an go to jail in their new county. so they get deported, boo hoo they deserve it!

    um... I triiiide but that's hard to do when you break the law and do illegal thangs.

    So I endeavor to make those illegal thangs legal.

    But for some reason... people think you should have to pay them when you mess up their stuff... or even if they mess up yours....so there is obviously some failure to communicate.... when people don't know I'm right.
