Among young black men in America, about 10 percent are currently incarcerated. It’s shocking, but we’ve almost grown used to it.
But while those young men are in prison, what’s happening to their wives, girlfriends, mothers and sisters?
Eviction. A new study coming out of Milwaukee shows that eviction is for black women what incarceration is for black men. One in 20 households there are evicted every year. In predominately black communities, that rate doubles to 1 in 10 families.
USA: Eviction is for black women what incarceration is to black men
We found out yesterday that an aboriginal man in a wa prison has been refused transpoort to attend his mothers funeral by serco- the private corporation that runs prisons, hospitals and custodial transport services.
Apparently it was ‘too expensive’ WTF!!!!
Anutha thing we heard is that the department of corrective services wants to televast the funerals into the prison…how insen
they think they can just take invasive cameras and film our ppl funerals…like wtf!! See how they treat our ppl???
And so it continues unless we walk on serco and dcs and take action now…cos imagine if that was yr mum or nan or sista or cousin or aunty that passed and u couldnt go cos u was in jail?
My heart cries for this man and we cant just sit back and ignore it either
