I had heard the term modern day slavery but did not take the time to understand what was meant until the past month. What I have learned through videos and reading has completely shocked me. I knew that black citizens were disproportionately jailed and at higher penalties than white citizens, I had witnessed it in person in my youth. But to connect the dots from the abolition of slavery to the prison work camps to continue free labor to the law & order movement that literally criminalized almost everything about black citizens, I some how had not seen it. The foundations of our society are all created from this, you can't build on a rotten foundation, you have to raze it and start fresh. That is what we need to do.
