1. Prison is the New Slavery.

 

Auction blocks to cell blocks, the sale of men has started up again.

5. The only legal slavery left is in prison. This needs to end.

4. "Auction blocks to cell blocks..."

Right on target. Slave labor became prison labor and work farm labor. The US had to do something to control all those freed slaves. Might as well get some free labor out of them and provide jobs for white men in rural areas.

2. Not a coincidence. Variety of reasons, voting the main one, why this was done on purpose.

Fear the second, many many many many white people fear all Black people.

Many, of all political ideology.
