The Young Black Mans Guide To The Inmate Problem

leave a comment »

Ok. As young black men, we are in prison in very high numbers. Yes, there is a systematic plan in place to keep these numbers high. Yes, America needs to continue to build America on the backs of slaves and get free labor. Yes, America accepts and wants us in prison. Yes, America plants drugs in the community and give it to us freely so that we can get locked up and become a free prison worker to power corporate American greed.

NO, we don’t have to actively participate. We do not have to be inmates. We do not have to engage in activities that get you a one-way ticket to jail. We can change the situation and be better. Yes, we can. We don’t have to sell and deal drugs on the corner because we feel inferior and feel that we cannot go to college and make it the way other kids can.

Trust me when I tell you that just because someone gives you a brick on the avenue to sell it and make money, that this person is legit. Many times, this is an undercover agent working for the feds who plant drugs in the community in order to test people, let them sell it, and have a sting operation set up to watch the paper trail.

Fast money is the work of the devil. Slow money is the work of champions. You don’t have to make money today just to feel like you’re doing something major. And most times, young cats say that they need to take care of their baby mama and haven’t sent her a dime to take care of the child in years. Stop being a part of a designed plan to keep you handcuffed both physically and mentally.

The Get Out Of Jail Guide

leave a comment »

The first thoughts that you have when you get out of jail are “damn, shit, fuck, gotdamnit, etc.” You start wondering where the hell everybody is and why no one came to see you and why mostly everyone stopped accepting your collect calls. You then go back into “damn, shit, fuck, gotdamnit” and start wondering what the hell are you going to do since you have this gotdamn felony on your back.

First of all, here’s what not to do. Do not head straight back to the block that you used to fuck around on and got locked up on. Realize too, that your crew that you thought would be down for you are just not there. They’re not supposed to be there for you like that and even if they are, they will lead you right back to another bid fuckin’ around with them.

Yes, you were in jail for some time and this also put you in a mental jail where your mind does not think that you can change. You now have prison walls in your mind and although you got your dress outs and are out of the physical prison walls, you are still confined in a cell in your mind.

This must change. You must realize that you don’t have to go back to the streets in order to make money. Yes, you have a felony. Yes, that stops you from getting some jobs but we have a cleanup job to do with your mind and you need to believe that you can clean this shit up.

Your freedom lies in your ability to get an education. You must learn. You must not believe that you cannot get educated. It’s the lack of education most likely that got you a bid in the first place. You must stop believing in greed and cash money.
