#45. Getting Out Of Prison

prison_releaseOver 10% of the Black Community is in prison (five times the rate it was 20 years ago). So when an incarcerated Black Person is released from prison, it’s like Thanksgiving, Christmas and winning the lottery all rolled into one.

After the O.J. Trial (he did it, by the way) Black People were convinced that they could finally beat the system. Not only did that turn out to be 100% not true, but O.J.’s acquittal systematically insured that Black People will always be harshly sentenced with long prison terms in America just to make up for it.

Of course, anyone being released from prison would dig getting out, but Black People experience prison releases in a far more unique fashion: it allows them the opportunity to figure out how to get back in.

#43. Buying Lottery Tickets

large_powerball_ticketLots of people like to gamble every now and then, but Black People prefer to game when they know they have absolutely no chance of wining. A great example is the money-wasting schemeĀ  known as playing the lottery.

The lottery is purposefully rigged to prevent Black People from winning with any frequency. Everyone knows this, except Black People. Only accidentally are Black People allowed to win large amounts of money such as when South Carolina resident Solomon Jackson Jr, Black Person, won the $260 million dollar Powerball in August 2009.

Unfortunately, this will only fuel even more Black People to spend their hard earned money on worthless lottery tickets and will offset Mr. Jackson’s winnings ten fold. Lottery tickets and scratch & win cards have been siphoning money from the Black Community with (mostly) false hopes of hitting it big. This is yet another cruel invention designed to take money from the Black People that’s almost as bad as buying rims.
