BP Hires Prison Labor to Clean Up Spill While Coastal Residents Struggle

Aug 22, 2010 | Posted by: Know4life | Full story: know4life.blogspot.com

Work crews in Grand Isle, Louisiana, still stand out. In a region where nine out of ten residents are white, the cleanup workers are almost exclusively African-American men.

,,.it may take another Civil War, but I think we need to start looking at that as an option...70% of Louisiana's 39,000 prisoners are Black...there's no excuse for that, none...It's time we all start to couple ourselves with guns...or as this BP matter is clearly showing, be ready to return to blatant slavery...

Remember, the FBI says that Whites or those counted as White commit about 77% of the crimes in America each year - now using the supporting tables..

,..but somehow, in the state of Louisiana, of the 39,000 inmates 70% are Black!

This is genocide! People, we need to marshal together

"Known to some as "the inmate state," Louisiana has the highest rate of incarceration of any other state in the country. Seventy percent of its 39,000 inmates are African-American men. The Louisiana Department of Corrections (DOC) only has beds for half that many prisoners, so 20,000 inmates live in parish jails, privately run contract facilities and for-profit work release centers. Prisons and parish jails provide free daily labor to the state and private companies like BP, while also operating their own factories and farms, where inmates earn between zero and forty cents an hour..."

,..Listen to me... we need to make the final call to this racist government! Either change! or we will have to die to change this shit!

Period

It is time to strongly consider Civil War against the racist criminal justice system... It is now time to consider open warfare in this country against the most blatantly racist justice system in the developed world!

Or become a slave...meanwhile Whites or those counted as White commit 77% of the crimes in America each year!

Or they could just quit committing crimes.

Perhaps, the reason for the high percentage of Blacks is due to a higher population of Blacks in comparison to Whites.

And who do you think is supporting that prison population? Last I checked it is the taxpayer. But by all means concern yourself over criminals who more than likely would think twice about victimizing you if the opportunity should arise.

Let's guess, the prison population isn't supposed to life a finger are they or otherwise, it's slavery according to you. How nice that you made the correlation betwee your slave ancestors to the prison population. Let's guess, next on your agenda is reparations for those who prey upon and victimize innocent people.

How many times! how many times do you F%^KING retards have to be told!

More Whites commit crimes than Blacks! Across this country!

Why are you not saying they should stop committing crimes!? Because THE MAJORITY..I'm sure yourself included, get away with an ASTRONOMICAL amount of crime each year!

Blacks are convicted over their arrest rates, your F$%&KING jelly sandwich fat-azz clown.. OVER THEIR ARREST RATE!

As a result Blacks represent over 60%!! of the WRONGFULLY CONVICTED ..do you understand?

,,.Of course you understand, you just like it, you support the genocide of Blacks and that's why a Civil War is needed!

Because the majority of Whites support genocide against Blacks not only in America but around the world... it's time we fight now.... to save our future generations!

And how many times has per capita been explained. If there are more White people there is going to be a higher percentage due to the higher number. ie If you have 20 apples and 10 oranges, of course will be a higher number of apples that spoil due to the fact that there are more apples to oranges.

As far as I'm concerned, I don't care what race it is that commits crimes. If a person commits a crime they deserve to be incarcerated and made to work in that the taxpayers sure have to work to pay the taxes that support those who prey off of society.

Why should I say that people should stop committing crimes? Well, maybe it would prevent the person from being incarcerated and that there is no victimless crimes the last time I checked. As they say, "If you can't do the time, then don't do the crime." Seems pretty explanatory to me.

Give a civil war a whirl and see where it gets you. I would think that the logical alternative would be to work to reduce the number of crimes.

Genocide? I sure don't see any mass executions and such that is indicative of genocide taking place. And that's an insult to the innocent people, worldwide, that were genuine victims of genocide. I can guarantee you that prison would be a cakewalk in comparison to what they experienced.

God!..per capita doesn't mean anything! We are talking actual arrests

It's simple math, clown... 10 million crimes is more then 3 million crimes, the group of labeled 'White' commits 10 million crimes a year! each year! Blacks just 3 million!

Therefore, looking at a national picture, there should be more Whites in jails and prisons than Whites, we are not talking about per capita crime rates.. we are discussing actual arrests vs actual convictions!!

God, you people are so stupid, that's why all of this crap goes on, why don't you learn simple logic and math, before you tackle per capita... idiot

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.[1]

correction: there should be more Whites in jails and prisons than Blacks ..based on arrest figures alone...where are the convictions against White offenders?!!??

per capita does not matter here..this a look at actual arrests (by race) vs actual convictions (by race)

PS... and before you say that prison is a gradual form of genocide, those who are incarcerated, in essence, placed themselves there.

It boiling down to cause and effect. People who commit crimes have no one else to blame in that they exerted their freewill and made a choice. Granted it being a wrong one.

They placed themselves in the situation that landed them in prison. They own the choices they made and the victims of their crimes didn't choose to be victims. It was imposed upon them.

And mercy shown to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent.

CLASSIC
Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group

,.emphasis on (prevent births within the group)

The mass incarceration of Blacks, while again Whites are free to commit 77% of the crime and be convicted far less,,..but the mass incarceration of Blacks reduces Blacks overall birth rates..

But an education will never befall you...

,.PS.."they put themselves there!" <--retarded..lol

Meanwhile; again White criminals commit about 77% of the crimes in America EACH YEAR!!- where are they putting them! because it is certainly not jails and prisons!

When you are using numbers to illustrate your point, per capita is important. Especially, when you say that there are more Whites convicted for their crimes than Blacks. There are more Whites/a higher population and thus, there will be a higher number of crimes due to per capita.

Again, the reason for the higher number of crimes commmitted is due to a higher number of Whites. It is only logical that if there are more people in one group there will be more crimes committed. Call it odds or what have you.

At any rate, it doesn't erase the fact that crimes were committed and in our society, that will result in a person being incarcerated for their crimes. Or would you prefer that those who victimize innocent people walk out the door and not paying their debt to society?

Again, if there are convictions it is due to a crime having been committed. The focus should be, I would think, to work on preventing a person in the first place from ever winding up in a courtroom. In essence, resolving/finding solutions to keep people from ever having to resort to crime in the first place. And that responsibility is the burden of the communities that are being plagued w/crime. And for every crime committed/resulting in a coonviction, I can guarantee that there are double that that never result in the person being held responsible for their actions.

Instead of calling us stupid perhaps it would benefit communities more to apply that energy to trying to find alternatives/solutions which benefit communities whre crime is rampant. Anything less is not serving any purpose except to leave people feeling bitter and helpless on some levels.

Whatever. Have your civil war but trust me, it will not resolve the problem but instead, will be that which will have ... well, I'll just leave it at that. You can fill in the blanks.

Now, carry on w/the insults. If that makes you feel better. And you own that. Not me. I'm just someone who responded to your thred. That's all. I didn't place those men in prison. Their actions did. Plain and simple.

Fact 1: White criminals in America commit more crime then all the criminals in China,..China has a population of 1.3 BILLION people, how do White criminals commit more crimes then 1.3 BILLION Chinese?

Fact 2: Women make up 51% of the US population, men make up only 49% of the US population; however, men commit 80% of the crimes in America while women only commit 20%, how can women with a larger population commit so much less crime then men?

Per capita has failed! and here's why, a large population size does not guarantee anything..and given the fact that China has the largest population in the world, and White criminals in America commit more crime then 1.3 BILLION Chinese... any attempt bto hold Blacks to a per capita analysis with Whites in terms of crimes is rendered inoperable

Because White criminals in America commit more crime then any race by group or any population in the developed world!

,..Your reply has failed!

There are more White criminals then all minority groups in America combined!, and all races by group or the largest population countries in the world (India and or China); ..because White criminals in America are the most criminal group by race in the free world!

You clowns live in a dream world, surrounded by fake information and stats to appease you! false propaganda and misnomers..

("Yes, ohReally, there's a VERY specofoc reason why Timmmay is avoiding that post...")

Fact one, nit-wit....negors commit a higher percentage of crime than the percenatge of the population they represent...whites DON'T.
Negors are more crimanl as a race than whites are.
