Background Checks


If you want to make a difference in the lives of African Americans remove the chains that's have been holding us back . This system is setup to handy-cap black people in this country by sending them to jail at a young age and then giving them a criminal history that last a lifetime (People change) I really don't think giving a non violent person a criminal history for life is a way to help this country move forward because a lot of these people have talent beyond belief and have made one mistake at a young age that bars them from doing and being all that they can be in life. Restrictions have been setup for people who have committed just one felony that last a lifetime which have absolutely nothing to do with the crime they committed it's just a tool people have been using to keep black people down (Have you noticed the number of African Americans incarcerated compared to whites ? ) there's a reason for it, some people deserve what they get but when your debt has been paid to society I see no reason for it to continue to be a life sentence. Let's expunge all completed sentences for non violent offenders after 10 years if they haven't committed any felony's within that period and make it retroactive if you really want to see what a black man can do.
