First they reference data from a body of factual research: 58% of Black American males serving prison sentences beyond 1 year were serving because of a VIOLENT CRIME
Then they offer another data point: 15% WERE INCARCERATED FOR A NON-VIOLENT DRUG CRIME.
We should STOP RIGHT HERE and go after all of the rhetoricians who claim that MASS INCARCERATION FOR NON-VIOLENT DRUG CRIMES IS DRIVING 'MASS INCARCERATION"
The the NARRATIVE was inserted into the piece:
- "War On Drugs" caused the 'Mass Incarceration"
- Blacks Are Given Longer Sentences (as compared to WHITE FOLKS)
- Low Income Communities Are Targeted By The Police (But so do 'Street Level Drug Dealers)
- The Racial Disparity is driven by:
- Bias In The Criminal Justice System
- Educational Outcomes
- Unemployment History
- Criminal History
- A Judge Sees A Black Defendant And Discriminates Against Him
SINCE BLACK MALES ARE OVERREPRESENTED IN JAIL THERE MUST BE A PROBLEM WITH "THE SYSTEM" THAT MASS INCARCERATES THEM
THIS ONE CHART:
- Should Neutralize The Claims Of WHITE BIGOTS That BLACK PEOPLE Are The Greatest Threat To Them
- Should Neutralize The Claims Of The "BLACK RACIAL SERVICES MACHINE OLIGARCHY" That
- FIGHTING WHITE POLICE OFFICERS WHO KILL BLACKS Is AN OPTIMAL USE Of "Black Activism For CHANGE"
- That "Racist' White Civilians Who Kill Blacks "MUST BE MADE TO STOP KILLING BLACK PEOPLE"
NEVER DO WE DISCUSS: "WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE OF UPWARD THRUST AFTER SO MANY DECADES OF INVESTMENTS INTO POLITICS AS THE SALVATION"?
THE CONFIDENCE MAN LEADERSHIP WHO ARE ENGINEERING THE NARRATIVES ARE NOT A PART OF "BLAMING THE VICTIM SET'.
THEY ARE INVESTMENT ADVISERS WHO DO NOT GET HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE OUTCOMES - AS LONG AS THEY STAY OUT IN FRONT OF THE MASSES - AND ENGINEER NEW NARRATIVES.
THIS PRIORITIZATION LEAVES US IN THE SPACE THAT THIS BLOG ADVOCATES FOR:
CHANGE THESE PROPORTIONS INTO "ACTUAL HEAD COUNT" AND ACCEPT THAT THIS IS THE "BURDEN - THE COST - CARRIED BY THE 'AMERICAN CONTAINERIZED BLACKS' FOR THEIR CHOICE TO SEEK SALVATION THROUGH AMERICAN POLITICS - AGREEING TO YIELD THEIR 'GOD GIVEN COMMAND FOR STEWARDSHIP' - OUTSOURCING IT TO A POLITICIAN WHO ULTIMATELY DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU - BEYOND YOUR USE IN POLITICAL HARVEST.
