  •  1.4 mil AA men are disenfranchised-- CAN'T VOTE-- (4+ / 0-)

    b/c of felony convictions; 7x the nat'l avg.

    40% of African-American men permanently lost their right to vote in states that punish ex-cons.

    Consider that when 1 in 15 African-American men are in jail.

    Consider that unemployment for ex-cons is 60% during their first year of release.

    Consider that freeing every prisoner in California (~170k) and sending them to a UC would save the state $7b annually.

    It makes a nice long-term plan for genocide.
