3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
is a condition in which discrimination against a dominant racial group in a society has taken place
These figures are from 10 years ago. They are far, far worse today.
10 Years After Apartheid, South Africa in a Crisis
Ten years after Apartheid (1994-2004): The Raw Facts
Here are the things you will never see in the major news media regarding post-apartheid South Africa:
# In 10 years 1+ million South Africans, mostly blacks, lost their jobs due to the ANC's creeping socialism.
# Unemployment is at a staggering 45%+ - much worse than under white rule & worse than the 30% unemployment in the USA during the Great Depression.
# 1 million whites stand to lose their jobs in the coming years to Affirmative Action programs.
# 1,450+ White commercial farmers have been murdered by black thugs and our food production is being threatened by "Land Reform".
# They say that by 2014, 30% of commercial farmland now owned by Whites will be owned by Blacks (though I think it will happen much sooner & on a much bigger scale).
# 115,000 land claims by Blacks have been processed so far - and millions of hectares of land have been handed over to them.
# There are farms in South Africa, which were prosperous when run by Whites, that were handed over to Blacks. These farms then collapsed after 2 years of black management and are now derelict.
# South Africa is the rape capital of the world... it is conservatively estimated that we have 50,000 rapes per year.
in Self Help
There is often a disembodiment that occurs when one has experienced rape. Many people report feeling as if they were outside looking in at themselves and that they had "deserted themselves all together during the experience." So, the question is, what can be done to reconnect to the body after the body has experienced trauma? Many people in this category feel that the body is a dangerous place. They are often disgusted and even distrustful of the body its very self.
This podcast walks you through an exercise to mindfully reconnect. You may download the podcast and replay it in the mornings if it helps you come in contact with your body once again.

We as a society teach our female children "don't get raped" yet we seem to fail to teach our male children "don't rape". How did we reach this disconnect and how do we go about addressing it? Often during rape trials we hear people talk about how the victim was "asking for it, just look how she was dressed" and we seem to accept this analysis as valid. It isn't, why do we as a society put the onus for rape on the victim instead of where it truly belongs, on the rapist? Why do we fail to teach our male children that how a woman dresses is not an invitation to do as they please, that they should not rape no matter what excuse they feel they have?
On today's show we are discussing society's views on rape. If you feel you have a question or comment that will add to the discussion please do call in on (646)716-6583 at 4:30 pm EST.

Rape culture is a phrase used to describe a culture in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender, sex, and sexuality.Examples of behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, or refusing to acknowledge the harm of certain forms of sexual violence that do not conform to certain stereotypes of stranger or violent rape.
Most of us have heard about the 16 year old girl named Jada that spoke out about her rape. She was drugged and sexually assaulted at a house party. She didn't know it happened until pictures and video surfaced on social media. There was one person that admitted his involvement to the alleged rape from his social media post. We decided with this information that he had to be exposed but that was met with anger and even threats. The people was laughing at this young girl but got upset when one of the people involved got his twitter and facebook shutdown. Houston Police claim they have strong leads but they are dragging their feet to arrest the suspects.
Human rights organizations, as well as political and social ones, are condemning what they are calling a new form of inhumane exploitation in the United States, where they say a prison population of up to 2 million – mostly Black and Hispanic – are working for various industries for a pittance. For the tycoons who have invested in the prison industry, it has been like finding a pot of gold. They don’t have to worry about strikes or paying unemployment insurance, vacations or comp time. All of their workers are full-time, and never arrive late or are absent because of family problems; moreover, if they don’t like the pay of 25 cents an hour and refuse to work, they are locked up in isolation cells.
There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus, “no other society in human history has imprisoned so many of its own citizens.” The figures show that the United States has locked up more people than any other country: a half million more than China, which has a population five times greater than the U.S. Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.
