There are several reasons why the prison industrial complex (PIC) continues to grow in America, and I will focus on two of the most important. The first is that in punishing people we as a society attempt to appease the fearful side of our own human nature. The second is that vested interests keep this very unsuccessful system going. Just as steel companies need iron and timber companies need trees, so prisons use people as their raw material.

“It’s okay, Puddin, it’s okay, we’re good.” I was more focused on calming my 10 year old daughter down than tending to my knee I hurt while hitting the floor as “Hood Terrorists” riddled our block (Eddy and Laguna Sts.) with bullets that missed my neighbor&rsquo

HOW A POOR WHITE GUY GETS THROUGH HOMELAND SECURITY WITHOUT A PICTURE ID

Hi everybody: I just came back from an experience I don’t want to do again. I went through Homeland Parinoia better known as Homeland Securityrted on June 8, 2015.  I went to visit a friends graduation in Seattle, Washington. I known her for a long time.  She is a good friend of mine. I went through the Airport in San Francisco OK.

Most poor folks generally don't have the privilege or luxury of traveling by air but more often than not it is most likely because a close family member or other loved one is seriously ill or dead.

Everything’s Political

From Writing Hip-Hop Lyrics to Activism to Motherhood, Heather Waltkins Shares Common Experiences & More

I’ve been in San Francisco, CA since 1991 but I’m originally from New York//CT.  People call the Bay area the bubble and I agree with the nice weather, what used to be liberalism, all year around vegetables and fruits you can get spoiled or think that this is the only place to live.
