You will never find in history where the former slave masters ever showed equal love and mercy towards his once people of possession. This has never happened. And it never will! America is no exception. In fact she has a deep seated hatred for her ex-slaves and shows this daily through her unjust laws and policies.
You see, ” Injustice, crooked politics, and the breeding of corruption under crooked politics have been practiced ever since Adam to the present day rulers. Adam was the first crook. There has not been justice for the Black man in this race of people, and this is why the race suffers from the effect of chaos today.”–pg.36(tfoa)
–“There is no justice for the poor, the so-called Negroes in America as long as they are subjects under the American flag. A great attempt is now being made on the poor, lost found, so called Negroes to deceive them by making false friendship, and the passage of Civil Rights bills, and forcing themselves to accept the lost-found (so-called Negroes) into their social equality.”–pg.118(tfoa)
The black male prison population in the US now numbers 38 percent of all inmates, state and federal, though blacks make up only 13 percent of the US population. However, recently two shifts have been launched to possibly change the situation.
In New York, Federal Judge Shira A. Scheindlin handed down a 197-page ruling calling the city’s stop-and-frisk law unconstitutional, saying that it violates the rights of minorities in the city. She said the law encourages racial profiling and pointed to the disparity between the numbers of Latinos and African Americans stopped and searched by police, versus the rate at which their respective groups are held responsible for crime. The law gives police the right to stop and question anyone, and critics said the stops frequently target blacks and Hispanics.
Scheindlin said the stops those officers made indicated a disregard for the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause, and the Fourth Amendment, which protects citizens against unreasonable search and seizure.
The second big change was launched by US Attorney General Eric H. Holder who announced a major policy shift in federal sentencing policies by instructing federal prosecutors to no longer impose charges on non-violent drug offenders that carry mandatory minimum penalties. Holder told the American Bar Association in San Francisco that he plans to work with a bipartisan Congressional group to give judges more sentencing options and expand their sentencing powers.
U.S. prisons are operating 40 percent over capacity, Holder said. While the US comprises five percent of the world’s population, 25 percent of the world’s prison population – 2.5 million people – are incarcerated and one in every 37 persons is under the control of criminal justice agencies.
