America Never Abolished Slavery
This past Black History Month, millions of students were told the story of how America abolished slavery 150 years ago with ratification of the 13th Amendment. The story draws an upward trajectory of racial equality in America from the abolition of slavery to Brown v. Board of Education to the Civil Rights Act to the election of President Obama.
The problem is the story isn't true. We never actually abolished slavery. The 13th Amendment states:
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
"...except as a punishment for crime..." This phrase gets ignored in America's telling of its slavery story. The 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery but rather moved it from the plantation to the prison. In 2015, the 2 million (largely Black) people incarcerated in America are legally considered slaves under the Constitution. As a result, they can and are forced to work for pennies an hour with the profits going to counties, states and private corporations including Target, Revlon and Whole Foods. In fact, there are more Black people enslaved today than in 1800.
This is no accident. In The New Jim Crow, Michelle Alexander lays out how a system of Jim Crow replaced slavery and later how a system of mass incarceration rose to replace Jim Crow. During Reconstruction, Southern states quickly took advantage of the 13th Amendment's slavery loophole by arresting Black people for minor crimes such as unemployment, loitering or gambling, and selling them to private employers through the convict lease system. Today, the majority of Black people enslaved in prisons were arrested for drug crimes. Even though Black people use drugs at the same rate as White people, they are incarcerated .

Random Thoughts of a Soulless Child: The Autobiography of Tony Christ, chronicles the life and transformation of Tony Christ from childhood in the rough streets of Sugarhill through his sadistic experiences imprisoned in some of America’s roughest prisons; as well as his rebirth as a scholar, youth mentor, activist, spoken word artist, and author.
It (The Autobiography on Tony Christ) is centered on him being an angry, poor and violent black youth unaware of the dynamics and social engineering that perpetuates black criminalization, which in turn costed him in circa, 15 years of his life in a cage.
His life, not only tells the story of an individual; it also tells the story of so many young brothers like tony who have been misguided, ignored, and demonized by society. His life, his struggles with being a black man in an extremely racist institution, his pain, and his compassion for oppressed people has produced a very inspiring story and stalwart figure.
