Jerry Price words to da Wise

Jerry price words
2001 numbers- Wisconsin has the highest "black incarceration rate" 4, 058 per 100.000 of total population.

.With the passage of the 13th amendment and the reconstruction period that targeted certain segments of population for repression, isolation and incarceration - To be criminalized, stigmatized, and ostracized. Oust/outcast from mainstream society. All under da color of law. A government secret program. To effectively end crime we would have to deal with the cause to find a solution, end poverty, lack of equal opportunity and education, stop the segregation and isolation of different segments in our society. This would be a good start. Cuz we would have ended discrimination which crushes dreams and self esteem. A key to happiness and success is said to be something to love, something to do, something to hope for:. Believing and feeling we are part of something.
Marcel proust: "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. "

1)Love Yourself Enough
You were born with potential.
Tou were born with goodness and truth.
You were born with ideas and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t,
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.
2) Out beyond ideas of wrong and right is a field.
I‘ll meet you there.
