20. Perhaps the candidate for the Prison Guard Union could shed some light on this.

 

Seems they don't care to reduce their population...it's job security.

That being said, Obama didn't end LGBT discrimination either. But he used the Bully Pulpit in doing what he can. Like saying he could erase racism being a Black President, but he was and is an effective message.

This all or nothing dyad is tiresome. Kind of like riding a bicycle...it takes a few tries plus the COMMITMENT to keep working on it.

And yes, kids in the ghetto are getting busted, ostensibly, for drugs. But it's also well known, that if a cop needs a collar...well, the closest black kid comes in handy.

So, we continue to pretend like its not happening and just go our merry way...those of us not in prison, that is.

Just another anti-Bernie meme, now that he really is electable. Better jump on something...that being racial parity in the court system...State or Federal. Silly guy...thinks he can do something once he's President.
