    Al Sharpton did something out of character the other day and pointed out the stupidity of a couple of NBA players that pulled out guns in the locker room over a debt dispute...gambling debt to be exact.

    Nice to see somebody can put aside color and call a spade a spade.

    Ask most people in prison and they will tell you they are innocent.

    We must all realize, that after the slavery was abolished, white racists in the south and north, deceided to put in prison as many free black men as possible. One of main reasons
    being that free black men would be in competition with white men of the time.
    And this was a method used to re-enslave black men.

    Black men were put in Prison for standing on the side walk.They made up all these crazy loitering laws, and put millions of free black men in prisons.

    Some of these laws are still on the books in many southernand northern states!!

    The black imprisonment rate skyrocketed with the so called war on drugs which has imprisoned a lot of people of all colors for drug related crimes, but has disproportionately targeted blacks. Most blacks who have plead guilty did so out of having bad public defender type lawyers in a justice system that has proven itself to be biased against blacks. No one denies that a lot of convicted blacks have been rightfully convicted of crimes they have committed, but the lengths and types of sentences are most certainly not fair. Just as the article stated, of those who were wrongfully convicted and later exonerated through DNA testing most were black men.

    Yes, they are indeed wrongful because carjacking, robbing liquor stores and shooting other ******* should be legal anyway. :thup:
