Very thought-provoking for those of you needing cerebral stimuli!
This was not too long ago in American History. It seems we are still discriminating in race and sexual preference. millions of blacks cannot vote in this current age for simple, marijuana law offenses with NO violence. Felon and loss of many liberties. Lumped in with violent offenders! The War on Drugs has imprisoned a proportionally larger amount of blacks than whites. The Rich, never go to jail over petty marijuana offenses because they can afford the best attorneys!
If I told you that in America almost 1 million black Americans were forever forbidden from voting, you might think I was talking about Jim Crow 50 years ago, but you would be wrong. According to the Sentencing Project, a staggering number of nonviolent individuals who have been released from prison, are not on probation or parole and who have committed no further crimes, are forever prohibited from voting.
