Making Things Better In Urban America
A number of young black men in America find themselves in the precarious situation of being charged for a criminal offense by law enforcement. This is either due to their misdeeds, or due to no fault of their own. A number of times black men end up in jail due to the phenomenon known as guilt by association.
The Black Community
The black community has number of different cultural biases that may contribute to the degradation and destruction of the black community. For example; any young black man from the hood will tell you that going to jail earns you respect in the black community among the more populous and popular element.
This can easily be explained by the over glorification by people who market the criminal lifestyle in hip-hop, movies, music, and by other methods. This can also be explained by the glorification of the Jail lifestyle and prison culture by television shows like Gang Life.
There are number of attorneys who have represented people who they feel are genuinely decent individuals, but have gotten themselves tangled up with the law in the state of Texas as result of poor decisions.
All too often these are low income offenders with minimal family support and a limited education. Score one for government run education system; which is only getting worse.
What the best solutions are to saving the black community, alongside all the other oppressed communities in the United States of America, is to eliminate the dominant power held by the banks which are more than likely the same people who control the drug trade and the education system. I guess it’s safe to assume that they also control entertainment making for a seamless matrix of overlapping mind-control mechanisms.
We as a people should stand up to empower communities and work to better educate our families and ourselves about history.
