Another way the prison system in America is modern day slavery and why the democratic- Republic system doesn't work.
So we arrest Black people, right? And in 11 states felons lose their voting rights permanently. 18 states they lose their voting rights until they finish parole. 19 states they lose their voting rights while they're in prison.
That leaves 2 states where felons can vote.
Then Black people are prosecuted for felonies at a higher rate, right?
And then inmates are counted as part of the population for the city where their prison is.
And because of how our system is we don't directly vote for anything. We vote for representatives that we trust to have our best interests in mind.
If I were a republican...
I'd arrest Black and BIPOC people, right? I don't want them to have a say because they won't vote for me. Okay.
Then, I want more republican congress people, right? I want more people on my side.
So... I have ALL THESE PEOPLE I've rendered unable to vote. A shitton of people.
And I house them in white districts. That way they have a "higher population" and that district gets more representatives. Right?
So we're taking votes and populations out of Black districts and putting populations into white districts without the votes.
Like I literally think of a comparison without comparing inmates to inanimate objects (which is why this is literally slavery. You've turned these people into objects to gain political power).
Then we put gerrymandering into the mix.
I'm drawing my districts, right? Well let's say we have an area with 100 white people SURROUNDED by Black people. Right? There's no way I can draw this city into a district that'll vote republican.
I build a prison in this city? And pull in 1000 inmates that can't vote? Then all of the sudden we have 1100 people in this city. So this city of 100 eligible voters is now it's own district. Giving me another republican district.
Sketchy shit going down when you look at the population count and prisons is all I'm saying.
I don't trust it.

Why do americans not like coppers? Like, police brutality is a thing in my country but the way you americans talk about it with your "acab" thing makes it seem like literally every single policemen on that entire country is a shithead, is it really that bad?
acab isn’t about the individual police. it’s about the whole system of policing, prisons, and the whole concept of “legality” in the first place. police are simply class traitors who chose to enforce the agenda of the bourgeois (defending private property, enforcing unjust laws - which is all of them, and being the physical manifestation of the state’s monopoly on violence) rather than protect their fellow man.

Text reads "If Bill Cosby can be convicted at 81 years old, then why isn't charges being brought upon Carolyn Bryant Donhan for accessory to murder for having Emmett Till like and confessing in 2017 that she lied about the entire ordeal."

Image of old Carolyn Bryant Donham.

For those that are new here. Emmett Till was lynched in 1955 at the age of 14 because Carolyn Bryant Donham (age 21 at the said he whistled at her (in a flirty manner. It was a flirty whistle apparently).
Image of Emmett Till to humanize him.
This petition is 11 months old, but I'm still sharing it.
Here's a link with more information discussing the FBI arresting her fur perjury.
Arresting Derek Chauvin wasn't enough. If the government wants to enact REAL change I want to see Carolyn Bryant Donham in prison and forced to pay restitutions to Emmett Till's family.
I want every fucking murderous asshole to see her hauled away in handcuffs and SCARED SHITLESS that they'll have to pay for the crimes they committed against Black people.
EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM.
I want the world to see America say, "Just because everyone did it, doesn't make it okay, and we'll make sure every last one of them is held accountable.
Justice for Emmett Till
