    I ain't no criminal, I'm not a coward. Why is so hard for a decent African American man to make a living in this America. Certain states, places, institutions I know I would not be welcome. Those places including certain parts of major American cities. Should not visit, knowing the possible feeling, anger, agitation, in some cases possible danger I would place myself willing into. Now mom-ma didn't raise no fool, and with my own eyes and daddies rules I see just fine. I use my intelligence to knock at the door of a decent living, held from excelling by lower income payed to me by institutions that by law are not, and should no longer have rights to discriminate. I am not complaining. I sacrifice, am pleased with myself, I strive, have to this day made a decent wage and lived a decent life. Yet like millions of others I am plagued.

    What is said about us? How are we playing ourselves into these positions, participating in our own demise in the Media? How do we continue and allow ourselves to be discriminated to by Corporations?
    By Society here in general, by any Caucasian, Asian, Indian from India and other Races that in reality have nothing we cant achieve, and have, out perform and excel in doing?

    Racial tension in the United States is at a high point not seen in decades. Increased outrage at incidents of police violence against black Americans and other more structural inequities have led to civil unrest and calls for dramatic changes in the criminal justice system. At the same time, the conditions of racial inequality that have arguably contributed to these recent events remain widespread and are unlikely to change in the near future.

    Incarceration leads to unemployment. Once convicted chances of gaining employment is nil to none. Impacted then is home ownership.
