Incarceration rate for African-Americans now six times the national average

19.02.2013 20:32

The incarceration rate for American-Americans is so high that young black men without a high school diploma are more likely to go to jail than to find a job, thereby causing the breakup of families and instilling further poverty upon them.

"Victorious Black Wommen" Saying No To Drugs & No Child Left Behind Was A Setup And A Blindfold To African American In The Inner Cities. They Change our education system into a learning intutition into a prepared criminal system preparing our children for juveniles incarceration to life in prison. Instead of having an acdemic learning systen they exchanged it for emotional & behavior structured babysitting systems from 8:45 to 3:15 Monday thru Friday instilling in our children they are criminals worthy of life in prison. They labled our children ADHD because they were bored Because They are Inquisitive being a child.

Russia has great history of racial tolerance. Check out old Russian movie the circus. Russian African American Alliance is a step that could change the world. There are many examples of cooperation between these two great peoples in the past and there can be many more in the future. Check out “Scottsboro Boys.” Putin we salute you.

I would like to see African American former prisoners accepted into other countries for human rights protection.

They have long be told to come back home to Africa by us Africans-Africans. They went there as slaves and the system shall forever treat them as slaves. I will never understand the benefits of being racist, besides division and hatered for one another for one another.

The internet is the new mask of anonymity.People make racist comments and hide behind the computer keyboard just the way the KKK hid behind the white mask.


And blacks do as much if not more hiding behind a keyboard than whites.

I don't expect the government to make any changes since all that matters to it is locking up criminals, not the effect such has on the African American community or even the U.S. in general. The prison industrial complex has become a major employer and too many private and public entities are profiting from high rates of incarceration of Americans, especially African American ones.
