Rasheed, Muhammad. "Evil's Silver Lining." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 22 May 2020. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
TheOriginalSinthesis - The concept of prisons for profit is wrong because it creates a demand for prisoners.
alester54 - That is a ridiculous way of looking at it. For-profit prisons enable the incarceration of criminals without destroying state & local budgets with excessive union contracts and pension costs
Muhammad Rasheed - It's only "a ridiculous way of looking at it" if your position is to protect white supremacist interests. The diabolical mass incarceration industry feeds upon the artificial criminalization of Black men to enrich the white racist aristocracy. The for-profit prison system is well documented as a continuation of chattel slavery by convict leasing, taking advantage of the 13th Amendment loophole, "...except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted."
But as a New York City area investor, financial consultant and entrepreneur, I'm POSITIVE you already knew all of this and are even profiting from it.
alester54 - I try to look at matters striking a balance between practical solutions and a sense of the greater good. I refuse to use a racist filter in decision making.
Muhammad Rasheed - Please note that subjugating Black Americans to continue exploiting & plundering them to economically elevate the white racist aristocracy does nothing beneficial for the greater good, but only enables the Über-selfish white political identity group to monopolize government and industry for themselves alone. Tell your colleagues to let my people go.
alester54 - I have no investments in that sector
Muhammad Rasheed - I'm sure that's a blatant lie.
