Food For Thought

Today, Black males have a 29% chance of serving time in prison at some point in their lives, Latino males have a 16% chance, and White males have a 4% chance.

Some would say it’s their fault. But the truth is that often times they are not doing anything wrong. Sometimes it’s a matter of going to jail or getting shot and killed.

If that were your choices what would you choose?

Of course, we must consider that many of the men and women who are in prison have done something wrong. But then we have to ask does the sentence match the crime? A sentence of 30 years in prison for carrying two ounces of crack. Is that an injustice to the person and our society? We could do better!

Remember every person that has been taken away from “normal” society (Jailed or killed) harms us all!

About Mastering You

"Mastering You" is about helping African American's to see their value in this world. I post only positive stories and information about what African American's have contributed to society in the past and currently. I don't post anything about Sports, Entertainment, Religion, or Politics. I also don't post anything that has a negative spin. While I am aware that there are negative things happening all over the world and that most people focus on the above four topics when it comes to African American's that is not my goal. If all you heard was negativity about any race that's all you will come to expect from them and everything else will be out of the norm. My goal is to show everyone that the negativity is often out of the norm, or at best they are equal to the positive. Just like every other race.
