Between the ages of 20 and 29, one black man in nine is behind bars. For black women of the same age, the figure is about one in 150. For obvious reasons, convicts are excluded from the dating pool.
Looking only at the non-incarcerated population, black women are 40% more likely to go to college. They are also more likely than white women to seek work. One reason why so many black women strive so hard is because they do not expect to split the household bills with a male provider. And the educational disparity creates its own tensions. If you are a college-educated black woman with a good job and you wish to marry a black man who is your socioeconomic equal, the odds are not good." - The Economist
Yes. Economists agree that in the Black community, the Black woman is the "man". The Rise of the Black superwoman is now a reality. Why isn't the community embracing this change and using it to their advantage? Is the male ego that sensitive? Are we really aware of the effect mass incarceration has ( and will continue to have) in our communities?

Ending Mass Incarceration – A Critical Human Rights, Civil Rights and Racial Justice Battle
The US has 5% of the world population and 25% of the world’s prisoners. On any given day, there are over 7 million people in our prisons and jails, on probation or parole. We lock up more people for longer periods of time than any other industrialized country in the world.
The brunt of this policy is borne by African-Americans and Latinos. Blacks make up 13% of the US population and over 50% of its prisoners. They are incarcerated at a rate 8 times higher than that of whites. As Michelle Alexander in her best-selling book, The New Jim Crow, has pointed out, once you’re labelled a felon, you’re trapped in a permanent second-class status in which you may be denied the right to vote, excluded from juries, and legally discriminated against in employment, housing, access to education and public benefits.
Our guests are both professionals in the field and activists campaigning to dismantle the prison-industrial complex and fundamentally alter the conversation about crime and punishment. They are:

Audrey Bomse, National Lawyers Guild, former Public Defender
Join us this episode as we speak with Revolutionary Communist Party member, Carl Dix.

What is the effect of mass incarceration on urban black families?
More than seven times as many people are incarcerated in the United States as in Europe. The main victims of the prison boom are minority, particularly African American, men, who, as sociologist Bruce Western has found, are eight times more likely to have served time in prison than white men. The effects of mass incarceration extend beyond the prisoner and his immediate experience of confinement, and can have a significant impact on the prisoner’s family. A slew of recent studies by Western and others suggests that the wave of mass incarceration contributes to the decline of families and the social fabric that binds them, leading to the further disintegration of already-disadvantaged inner-city neighborhoods.
