In America, the Black man is of no significance, and white society discards him to the legal system. The term “Black man” is a euphemism for the n-word, subjecting anyone falling under this term to modern slavery.
The victim mentality the Black man coins among the deplorable wiles of the Department of Corrections is a call to silence the Black community.
Why is it that Black people are to take the blame for victimization, when we are in fact victims of a narcissistic government?
Black people are gaslighted for simply wanting equality.
