©PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE HUMAN BEINGS TOO!!!
part 2:

STIGMAS ATTACHED TO A NEGATIVE SYSTEM OF NOMENCLATURE:

I AM: bones

I AM: tissue

IAM: muscles

IAM: blood

IAM: nails

IAM: hair

WHY?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because: PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE REAL HUMAN BEINGS TOO!!!

Society & the media have a cold, calculating way of attaching labels to everyone

When the labels are bad, they are meant to "Demonize" dehumanize, strip a person of his/her dignity & make them into a monster.

When people hear the label, they are conditioned to kept away from him/her like they have a contagious disease
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Being the fact that I, & others who are in prison are locked up, being punished, serving a debt to society

At the same time we are being: segregated, ostracized, outcasted & tortured

Labeled & named

The punishment doesn't start with a guilty plea or guilty verdict

The conviction doesn't start with a guilty plea or guilty verdict

IT STARTS WITH THE MEDIA!!!

When a person is arrested, his/her face is plastered all over TV & newspapers

The media finds the most ugly looking mugshot they can of the "accused" person

When "normal" people in society see the image, they say: "Man that guy/girl looks crazy...He/she looks like a criminal, I bet he/she is guilty."

The person is called a: thief, murderer, rapist, drug dealer...ect
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After his/her debt to society is served, the punishment don't stop, the repercussions don't stop

He/she goes for a job, & are told: "No, we can't hire you...you're a FELON!"

He/she tries to get a house & are told:
"No! You can't live in our neighborhood. You're a FELON!!!"

He/she tries to get a driver's license

He/she wants to vote

He/she wants to get a loan

But all he/she hears is "No, No, No, you're a FELON!!!"

When are we ever told: "YES!!! BECAUSE YOU ARE A HUMAN!!!"

WHY?

Because PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE REAL HUMAN BEINGS TOO!!!

Thanks for your time!!!
