13th is a documentary that everyone needs to watch.

“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.”

For white men, the lifeitme likelihood of imprionsoment is 1 in 17. For black men… it’s 1 in 3.

Black men account for 6.5% of the US population but account for 40.2& of the prison population.

Having people truly understand that when Black Lives Matter, everybody’s life matters including every single person that enters this criminal justice system and this prison industrial complex. It’s not only about black lives, it’s about changing the way this country views human dignity.
