  • The Snitch

    This prose is about the snitch. Some might find it offensive, but I am compelled to write about it for the sake of enlightening you on how snitches can be counter-productive to a community. Before you can totally understand how the snitch can be an impediment to the prosperity of a community, you must first understand what a snitch is and how they came about. The History of Snitching Snitching has been going on for as long as man existed, but many seem to associate the term with crime and Black... READ MORE

  • Story of Disgrace

    What you are about to read is disturbing. The facts surrounding the story will anger and sadden anyone who researches it. It is so disturbing that I don’t know how to put it. Nevertheless, I am compelled to write about it for the sake of denouncing such behavior and warning parents and communities to pay close attention to the emotional and mental well-being of boys who might seem to be emotionally and mentally neglected, or else their boys could end up being the subject of a story of...

  • Quawntay Adams from Break Out Releases Book

    As many of you already know, I recently published my memoir, Chasin’ Freedum. Considering the title, some might assume that the story is a reiteration of my story as revealed in the documentary “Break Out”. But Chasin’ Freedum is about much more than a prisoner escaping prison. It is a story about struggling and overcoming barriers, both internal and external. Some of these barriers are the same barriers that many of you face on a daily basis. After all, the lack of... READ MORE

  • Only We Can Improve Our Communities

    Well…50 years ago, we couldn’t imagine the day when a black man would become President of the United States. Then out of nowhere came Barack Obama–half white, half black, but black enough. When he became President, Blacks were elated and filled with super optimism. I remember receiving messages from people believing that racists would run for the hills and the black communities would finally prosper. Everyone believed the change had finally come. But now, eight years later,... READ MORE

  • Donald Trump: What now?

    Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, everyone is asking: What now? Will he build the wall? Will he load all of the Mexicans onto a freight train like chattel and ship them back across the border? Will he ban Muslims? Will he finish what Reagan and Clinton started and build more prisons for young black men? Who knows what Trump will do– probably better than the rest. But it’s likely he will do what all presidents do when in office– make the... READ MORE

  • Sentenced to 35 Years for Marijuana and Clemency Denied

    Following the recommendation of the Pardon Attorney, the President denied my petition for clemency. Many people had high hopes in the President setting me free, especially given the fact that I am serving a harsh sentence of 35-years for ATTEMPTING to possess marijuana during a time when marijuana is legal in half the country. That alone should have warranted a commutation of my sentence. So when we throw in the fact that: (1) I haven’t committed an act of violence since I was 17 years... READ MORE

  • Make America Safe Again?

    In his push for the White House, Donald Trump is promising to “make America safe again.” What exactly does he mean by making America safe “again?” Does he mean safe as in the day before the Europeans arrived and began killing off the natives? That seems like the only time America was safe– at least for non-whites. From the time Africans were captured and boarded onto slave ships, America has never been safe for Blacks. I’m not sure if Donald Trump knows this,... READ MORE

  • Stand Up Against Racism

    Yesterday, September 30, was my birthday. And what was my gift other than another gray hair? Nothing but racial harassment and one more reason to stand up against racism and injustice. Here’s what happened: At approximately 7:48 a.m. I was leaving the chow hall with a pair of gloves in my back pocket. As I walked by a group of white staff members (99% of the staff here at U.S.P. Canaan is white), one of them, who happened to be an Assistant Warden, yelled out: “Hey guy!” (I... READ MORE

  • Quawntay Adams aka Bosco

    What’s up everybody! Welcome to my page. I appreciate your time and attention. My name is Quawntay Adams, better known as Bosco. I’m from Compton, California. Right now I am locked up in United States Penitentiary Canaan, a federal prison in Waymart, Pennsylvania, serving a 35-year sentence for possession of marijuana. I’ve been incarcerated since January 2004, and I don’t know when I’m getting out. I have a clemency petition pending before the Obama... READ MORE
