2.4 million people most of them
Black and Latino in prison!
Racial profiling a pipline to prison
for generations of our youth
Former prisoners discriminated against on virtually every front.
Clyde Young says;
"all this comes down to a slow genocide which could easily accelerate", Young breaks all this down and speaks to where things are headed if action is not taken. Listen to Young discuss "what kind of revolution is needed to eliminate mass incarceration and all the brutality and misery this capitalist system enforces on humanity once and for all".
Clyde Young is a Revolutionary Communist and a former prisoner. He served time in juvenile facilities as a teen. His transformation from a life of crime to a revolutionary, while serving a 20-year prison sentence for armed robbery, is discussed in an interview in The Bandana Republic: A Literary Anthology by Gang Members & Their Affiliates (Soft Skull Press, 2008) Clyde Young has written articles supporting the two prison hunger strikes in 2011--these hunger strikes involved thousands of prisoners. He is currently working to expand the Stop Mass Incarceration--Were Better Than That Network, a network that includes such prominent figures as Carl Dix, Cornel West, and Herb Boyd.
