I read this article in the Atlantic before I saw this post. If there are still people out there who choose to believe the atrocities done to the black race were okay because they think they are better because they are white – then I do feel sorry for them. It is that kind of negativity toward another man that eats away at their humanity causing a cancer to grow. It is time to stop that cancer and respect all life. I say that knowing it probably isn’t possible. There are people who simply enjoy wallowing in their negativity. These people are too damaged and too unhappy to ever be able to change.

What that means is more people who understand – more white people – need to stand up and be counted. It’s not good enough to silently tell yourself it isn’t right what we continue to do to black families. It’s not good enough to say it isn’t your fault – you didn’t do it. You need to be vocal. You need to tell your friends and your politicians it has to stop.

The media has portrayed the black man as being more dangerous – of having a greater tendency to commit crimes. When the media – owned by one of several white corporations tells you that over and over, in your mind it becomes truth.

The rest of us need to stand up and say “ENOUGH!”

The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration

American politicians are now eager to disown a failed criminal-justice system that’s left the U.S. with the largest incarcerated population in the world. But they’ve failed to reckon with history. Fifty years after Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s report “The Negro Family” tragically helped create this system, it’s time to reclaim his original intent.

Never marry again in slavery.— Margaret Garner, 1858Wherever the law is, crime can be found.— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, 1973
