If we address the prison industrial complex then we gotta address just what exactly transpired. Saying slavery was abolished with the 13th amendment just changed the means of how we view slavery. We no longer see it in plain view but it is masked under the facade of a long , debt to be owed, time out, behavior management type of punishment rather than the actual nature of what has been done for the past 151 years. Modern day lynching via gun. Cause if you kill or jail the black man no matter what he does he has no chance to be a FREE man and retaliate or fight back for what was done to him. So if we free the slaves then what happens to the people that enslaved them? What happened to their economy ? What happens to their land ? Resources ? Especially since we had it all before and it's more of us , the so called minority... it would literally be a race to survive.
Isn't it like that already?
So constructing the means of race and hoarding the power to distribute resources and power, the perfect power to back that; to hold back a people who would jeopardize that is to lock them away.
Exterminate them like weeds if you must because the mere thought of their survival would be eradicating everything built to hinder them
Naturally repelling what isn't right.
But it's like the big elephant in the room.
The ones that kept my daddy and my brothers caged up in a human zoo.
But the zoo keepers are the only animals I see.
Killing innocent men and women even babies in the street.
Heard they just killed one last night.
A baby. As if his life matters not.
So again addressing the prison industrial complex would mean admitting America is still very much a slave nation. Slavery never ended & my people are not free.
That's flag you wave? Doesn't represent freedom for the many.
It's more like a chokehold on a slaves neck & mouth to prevent them from eating and speaking .
American Dream want y'all to think about what that really means ?
