    12 Ani un Slave

    12 years ago, Am stat în interiorul Philadelphia Federal centrul de detenție al lui (FDC Philadelphia) Primirea și unitatea de descărcare, mintea mea încețoșată la realitatea în fața mea. “Care este numarul tau?!” “6-0-1-2-8-0-6-6!” I reluctantly replied to the correctional overseer as I began to kneel down on the cold concrete slab that served as a bench to get shackled and handcuffed. 6-0-1-2-8-0-6-6 is what I had become, federal property complete with an eight digit bar...CITESTE MAI MULT


    America de a face din nou în siguranță?

    În împinge său pentru Casa Albă, Donald Trump este promițătoare pentru “face Americii din nou în siguranță.” Ce anume face el prin a face Americii în condiții de siguranță “again?” Vrea să spună în condiții de siguranță, ca în ziua dinaintea europenilor a sosit și a început uciderea de pe nativii? Pare singura dată când America a fost în condiții de siguranță– cel puțin pentru non-albii. Din momentul în care africanii au fost capturați și îmbarcat pe nave de sclavi, America nu a fost niciodată în condiții de siguranță pentru negri. Nu sunt sigur dacă Donald Trump știe acest lucru,...CITESTE MAI MULT


    Marginalized: The Criminalization of a Race

    As the cycle of mass incarceration continues, prison will be an expected rite of passage into manhood for an even greater number of African American men. Trist, most will consider their prison experience to be a badge of honor. Adevărul trebuie spus, more than any other ethnic group in this nation, people of African descent, particularly males, have endured the somber and debilitating impacts of prison. În 2010, African Americans comprised nearly 50% of the incarcerated population in America while...CITESTE MAI MULT


    Why I support Colin Kaepernick

    Photo Credit: Chris Carlson/Associated Press Why do I support Colin Kaepernick? I know how hard hard it is for a black man in America today. From the drug usage to the disunity and violence, I see of the effects of the psychological warfare waged on us. I see how we are turned against each other and how we encourage disunity among ourselves based on what we were taught by the very same people we believe can help us. The minute a person agrees to work with the government they destroy lives and...CITESTE MAI MULT


    The Mind of My True Enemy

    #Ridica – Peace to the inmate nation and the REAL family members and loved ones who never left my corner. Today I’m approaching the session from a totally different angle . . . I call this angle “The Mind of My True Enemy”. Before I drop FREE JEWELS, let me say G-lookin’ to KB and the Big Homie Mass for even making a social platform like Live from Lockdown even possible. I believe in the power of dedicated minds. I greet you from the confines of USP...CITESTE MAI MULT


    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...CITESTE MAI MULT


    Mr. White Privilege and the Black Masquerade

    As we begin our long walk to freedom we must expose those who could obstruct our journey by operating as agent provocateurs for our nemesis Mr. White Privilege. As all blacks will attest, being black is not just a skin complexion that warrants unquestioned love and loyalty. An example of this is Michelle Obama. No matter what we think of her husband’s inaction on certain issues, we all in our community admire her as a REAL black woman. We know she loves her people and is still of her...CITESTE MAI MULT


    #DearMrPresident Investigate Corrupt Law Enforcement

    Dear President Obama, Este de înțeles că orice crimă trebuie să fie aduși în fața justiției, dar atunci când aplicarea legii devine elementul de justiție penală nu poate fi servit, indiferent de rezultatul unei probleme / caz penal. Este un fapt cunoscut că mulți în toate ramurile de aplicare a legii, inclusiv faptul că Statele Unite ale Americii judiciar au fost implicate într-o conspirație pentru a priva afro-americani de libertăți civile lor, drepturile constituționale ale acestora și drepturile omului. Recent, the Federal Bureau of...CITESTE MAI MULT
