    Justice and Peace

    I used to fight over colors I used to fight over territory to hustle on I used to fight over disrespect I thought I was hard I thought I was like that I thought I was a man, but deep inside I was emotionally distressed, mentally depressed. I was cold; I was just-ice I was in a state of imprisonment within myself In my prison I had fights with me I had constant lockdowns I felt all alone, with thoughts of homicide, suicide and many other violent injustices. I believed I was a victim of...READ MORE

    Manhood (Part 2)

    “If a man seeks greatness, let him forget greatness and ask for truth, and he will find both” -Horace Mann What kind of example are you setting for the little homies out there? And more importantly, who’s raising your sons? I hope it’s not the TV or Internet. If so, not only does your son run a 90% risk of going to prison, there’s also a high likelihood that he’ll be gay or indulge in some kind of homosexual activity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all...READ MORE

    All We Want Is Equal Justice

    In prison we are mourning the recent tragedies and loss of life in Baton Rouge, Minnesota and Dallas. The gross injustices and police aggression in this country has us convicted violent felons asking ourselves, each other, the parole boards, and the public: who are the real killers? In the streets we kill each other out of ignorance, chasing capitalist dreams, trying to live up to misplaced values. Our overseers, the local police, are killing us like it is a Hunger Game. America must continue...READ MORE

    WARNING: The Emasculation of a Nation

It is no secret that the United States of America prides itself as being built on Christian principles.

    Is love the key to criminal justice reform and stopping police shootings?

    For anyone who knows me, I am very passionate about criminal justice reform. I believe it is a MAJOR root to today’s social problems. Being a black man, the potential for violence to erupt between young black men and the police was as real as using the drive-thru at McDonald’s. It was just a FACT. We literally would not drive down certain roads in Washington D.C.  Why? Because we knew better. Dallas Police Shootings This week there has been more tragedy than I believe any of us...READ MORE

    After all the protesting, will something finally change?

    I see the world is starting to see through the eyes of an African-American thanks to social media. But after all the protesting, will something finally change? Do more blacks or police have to die just so we can receive justice? Do this shine light on the criminal justice system? Everyone is trying to understand why blacks are targeted, why blacks are hated so much we hate each other. I can tell why. Maybe it’s the simple fact that we consider ourselves American. Sound crazy? Think about...READ MORE

    Trenton State Prison on Smash

    This post was received before Omar Austin’s last post. The previous post was published first in order to get word of  his mother’s unexpected death to family and friends. What it do? Sorry for being out of touch for a few months. I was on smash back at Trenton [New Jersey] State Prison. They worked it on me. I’m solid though, no matter where I have to be. All prisons are slave camps. It’s a fact that the authorities utilize and manipulate location and the difference in...READ MORE

    Intoxication Rape

    The Stanford rape case compelled me to write this post. Imagine you’re out with a buddy. The two of you decide to hit a bar. As the night goes on, he mentions that he had a rough week and needs to unwind. “I got you,” you say as you try to get the bartender’s attention. “Two beers, two shots of tequila and keep ’em coming!” You and your friend sit at the bar laughing, drinking and making a game of trying to figure who will give in to the shots of...READ MORE
