So…I figured you were thinking I might be talking about pancakes, waffles and the like but unfortunately that’s not the case. I wanna talk about something going on in the black community. I’m going to be a little serious and a little humorous so prepare yourselves. I want to talk about something affecting the black community more than any other.
Black men…the prison system and it’s impact on our society. They are disproportionately sent more to prison than the make it to college. While in prison varying different things happen to them. These are unspeakable acts. Check out this vid for a brief description:
Now…I know the video seems funny. But honestly let’s think about this…try this scenario if you will.
Mike has been in prison for five years. While he was there…he was forced to lick other men or be forced to receive anal. Meanwhile, he learns a trade. Then he goes back home, where he earns a job…(cause remember he got skills). Now…we have Keisha who already has two kids and needs a man (needs cause that’s how Keisha thinks about it)…anyways back to the story-he’s got money, she needs money…he’s not trying to fyck without a condom. She does it anyways…a new HIV case is thus born. And let us not forget about the baby born of this union.
So from this we can see that we can’t blame it all on the downlow brotha. We have to blame it on the prison system and our lack of respect for ourselves as women. I wanna know why anyone would feel the need to defile their bodies this way? Is the economy that bad? Does anyone feel that the prison and governmental system are not doing all they can to help black boys? Educate black girls on safe sex? Or does anyone just really feel that the government engineered crack then AIDS to eliminate blacks (I sometimes do!)?
