Thanks Obama - The Enormous Black Prison Population is now Minus 8! Why Do We Tolerate High Levels of Black Incarceration?
Race as a proxy for genetic difference (genetic recessive and yet superior!). Racists explain away racial disparity in incarceration rates of non-whites and whites as being genetic or based on biological difference. That is, non-whites, particularly Black people, are not the same kind of human being as whites or persons who are classified as white. For instance, non-whites are predisposed to criminality and therefore the reality of mass incarceration is unchangeable. In the white supremacy logic therefore there is no need to address the racial disparities that exist in all areas of people activity. High levels of incarceration then are perceived not as unjust but normal.
Do you think this way about people who look like you? If you are non-white and you believe this then you subconsciously believe you are inferior to whites and are participating in your own oppression. Do your elected Democrat or Republican representatives also believe in this delusion? If so, replace them. The only purpose of race is to practice racism.
The sheer scale and acceleration of U.S. prison growth has no parallel in western societies. Most of the people sentenced to time in prison today are black. [MORE] According to Frances Cress Welsing white genetic survival is the dynamic behind the high incarceration rate of non-white males in the U.S.,which is globally second to none [MORE]. Too many non-white people behind bars is a goal of white supremacy. There can be no constructive resolution of this issue without addressing white supremacy/racism - which is the cause of the problem.
The system of white supremacy (racism) requires population control and the greater confinement of substantial numbers of non-white people. [theCode]. According to Neely Fuller, white supremacists/racists make certain that large numbers of non-white people exist under conditions that will most likely cause them to do things that give racists an excuse to put them in Greater Confinement. White prosecutors, judges, police, probation officers and overworked, de-valued or incompetent, mannequin-like defense counsel are filling the jails with non-whites. There is no need for you to simply believe this; go to your local court and watch the lock-ups/arraignments; they are overwhelmingly non-white. How much will you tolerate?
From [HERE] President Obama [see Neely Fuller on the art of showcasing above], expanding "his push" to curtail severe penalties in drug cases, on Thursday commuted the sentences of eight federal inmates who were convicted of crack cocaine offenses. Each inmate has been imprisoned for at least 15 years, and six were sentenced to life in prison.
It was the first time retroactive relief was provided to a group of inmates who would most likely have received significantly shorter terms if they had been sentenced under current drug laws, sentencing rules and charging policies. Most will be released in 120 days. The commutations opened a major new front in the administration’s efforts to curb soaring taxpayer spending on prisons and to help correct what it has portrayed as inequality in the justice system.
In a statement, Mr. Obama said that each of the eight men and women had been sentenced under what is now recognized as an “unfair system,” including a 100-to-1 sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine offenses that was significantly reduced by the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010.
