I have been hearing so much concern over Donald Trump being elected, and I am really upset (even as a young Black Man) that we are going to condem someone BEFORE they even get their 1st chance to make a mistake.
And I may not “agree” with Mr. Trump’s stance on everything he spouts-off about – However, It scares me for how I might also be treated that unfairly (and pre-judged) upon my release, simply because of having certain charges or criminal convictions.
America claims to be an equal oppertunity country, yet they never surprise me in how much we sometimes put the carriage before the horse, while assuming the worst of people w/o righteous merit.
Parents, if you are wanting CHANGE, teach your kids to vote instead of tweeting on Twitter (complaining) about things, and also start not only getting off your butts to help inspire your communities, but educate eachother on HOW to start running for offices that effect; our country, our economy, and well-being of our average citizens.
I wake up IN PRISON and do something productive out in the world, EVERYDAY. There’s no reason you can’t do the same, especially when you are free with a plethora of oppertunites at your disposal. Quit blaming somebody else for our current conditions, and start making conditions become more favorable by your efforts. God gave us all the power-of-free-will…
You can tell a tree by its fruit.
