The mother of the children, the first teacher, the one that has been the backbone of the community of African descent since before slavery. Women such as Harriet Tubman come from this community, who has been historically known for forcing slaves to run for freedom by placing a gun to their head.

This mentality from many of the women of African descent has been at the very heart of the community, as they have made tremendous sacrifices for the future generation.

The woman has been the strength of the families in this community, as the men were suspended in an oppressed condition. Even in today’s society where males of African descent are disproportionately incarcerated at an alarming rate, so much so that one out of three males are under the control of the system, statistically. In some parts of the country that statistic is even worse, as the citizens view their living conditions as a police state. Not only are the males incarcerated but they have also been disenfranchised from receiving adequate employment opportunities because they possess felons on their records.

Sandra Bland was one incident that has awakened the world to the killing of the women of African descent because of the injustice and racism that is prevalent still in America. There are many other victims such as Shelly Frey, who was also murdered in the state of Texas and shot in the neck twice by overzealous law enforcement officers.

There are many other situations and untold stories in regards to the women of African descent being unjustly murdered. It is pass time that these stories got out to the world and it is pass time that these situations are bought to a halt. Anyone can be a victim because of their mere skin color or more so because of the injustice that exists within the fabric of our society.

The community of the world must remain vigilant in speaking out against these injustices, along with educating one another on the appropriate responses to being stopped by law enforcement.




Employment discrimination is an ugly disease that is eating away at the fabric of our society and has been accepted for too long. Healthy men and women are unable to provide for their families because of a misfortune or infraction in their history. Let me reemphasize history, as double jeopardy is unconstitutional in our society from a legal standpoint; however, it appears to be practiced everyday through employment discrimination.

Let us change this double jeopardy that affects so many lives and stop employment discrimination today by overcoming the barriers that still plague our society. Every citizen regardless of race, religious preference or social background has a right to be gainfully employed. One of the key components to being a productive citizen in society is being able to able to be gainfully employed.

The decision is ours as a people, if we want the discrimination to stop now we can by standing against it. Stand up against discrimination wherever it exists and watch the change take affect…


Dr. Charles Knox, aka Mahmoud Abbas, born in Chicago, Illinois and traveled throughout the world fighting for international human rights...
CknoxAs we approach what is considered black history month, we recognize a community activist that fought throughout his entire life for change and social justice in the world. His voice for international human rights still can be heard today and his legacy continues through his students who he adopted, treating like his own children. As he embraced the African concept, 'it takes a village to raise a child.' My friend, great leader and mentor you are never forgotten... Your legacy for institution building in the inner city community continues...


Did the world expect a Malcolm X, also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz to come out of the American prison system… The world was taken by storm and many brothers such as this are produced everyday in our judicial system that fail to get recognition, but will one day rise by divine ordainment. The prison system adversely affects families daily at an epidemic rate and those affected by this system continue to grow at an astounding rate. Not only by our citizens becoming property, as the prison system is on our stock market and through the 13th Amendment. However, our society is affected because most people incarcerated will one day be released from prison and back into society. What are we to do with this population that is affected disproportionately by major issues such as employment discrimination and recidivism. As a civilized society we are obligated to do whatever it takes to stop discrimination against anyone and stand up for the rights of every citizen… We implore everyone to take a stance against discrimination in all of its forms…

The injustices of the socalled criminal justice system has disproportionately incarcerated individuals from a lower economic status… modern day slavery runs simultaneously with capitalism, as housing people produces money. The concept reins true in real estate as well, you house people to produce money. Let’s be honest how many people reading this blog have family members who have been affected by this machine. I’m not propagating that breaking the law is okay, but what I am propagating is that reform is necessary. With our president having a doctorate in jurisprudence some of the issues of reform should be bound to be addressed.

Allow us to examine the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution: slavery shall be abolished except… Unambiguously, their should be a constitutional amendment made against this law. All American families are affected by someone being incarcerated, especially if your family is from the lower income communities which is increasing daily with the economic disparities. In our families and communities the every day citizens have become responsible for the rehabilitation of our loved ones. There is no argument that African Americans make up the majority of our prison population, as if some of the laws are specially tailored to affect their families. A clairovoyant example are the cocaine laws that offer a significant more time to the individual depending on the form it’s in. Justice should be implemented across the board or injustices will run rampant…

What is your position on the criminal justice machine?
