The US put Blacks in Prison Policy is now for Everyone

Lawyers make money, corporations make money, towns, states, and federal government make money, organized crime makes money. It is all a vicious cycle. When African Americans got more freedoms in the 1960's, they were paid back with a policy to bust them for drugs, or any excuse possible, and then put them in prison. There are so many prisons in the US, and so much money for insiders to make, no one is safe from just ending up serving time. I did, I got a year in prison for resisting being mugged. [that story]

Ta'Bon who served nearly a decade behind bars for armed robbery, says divine inspiration has led him to preach a gospel of nonviolence from a homemade outdoor jail cell in Philadelphia. Editor for the Black Agenda Glen Ford says inside America's inner cities, by the time black men reach 30 years old, 80 percent have a prison record.
