    At the rate the national economy is going from every single true economic indicator,
    and our filure to embrace Black nationalism, with any of the trillion dollars we spend

    the picture is prophetic of the future of roughly 40% of Black innercity youth

    It says 'is this africa?' and 'wow, he's lucky. He gets to touch and feel his relatives or love ones.'

    In my state, most of inmates here get to talk to through plate glass and telephone, or they have to sit on opposites of a open-glass divider. I never visited anyone in jail, but that's what I'm told and that's what I see on television.

    And this is an old jail. He even gets to have his own light switch. I know that all or most jail/prisons have electronic lights that are monitored by the guards.

    If you're looking for a more profound response, as to what to do with people in prison..... well I got ideas but to implement them it would mean I'd have to be in charge of a prison or I'd have own a private one.

    He looks content enough. Doesn't look like he's being abused. I imagine that has something to do with the fact that he can feel and touch his love ones.

    Why are we assuming he's the one behind the bars? could easily be her - they're both wearing the same and I've no idea whether the cell door's meant to open in or out - I've been in jails with both here in the UK - not as an inmate I better add.

    Aye, that is true! How come my feminist butt didn't get that?

    Another one of my presumptions that he's the one in jail, likely because higher number of people who commit crimes and go to jail are men. But I should have known because even I've spent time in jail, and the number of women in jail and prison is increasing steadily.

    I didn't think this was an American jail or prison because it looks either foreign or antiquated.

    In the UK where I live right now there are more black females in jail than black males - that's what made me spot it right off.

    peace

    Love jumps out at me right away, no matter where they are or which one of them is the one not going home.

    I also think it's kind of an old picture, maybe late 70's to mid 80's....

    An examination of whether or not the statistics increased or decreased when economies in any nation declines.

    What does history say?

    If this has increased exponentially in our community over the past 40 years then we must design methodologies to reverse it.
