Making A Difference No matter what anybody tell you about U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Do not let them tell you that he didn’t try to make a difference. Mr. Holder understands the flaws in the criminal justice system that are misshaping our neighborhoods into breeding grounds and markets to sell African Americans into incarceration. He has acknowledged that an estimated 5.8 million Americans…Are prohibited from voting because of current or previous felony convictions. The Attorney general has made it clear that 2.2 million black citizens, or nearly one in 13 African-American adults, are banned from voting. He has announced 11 states the U.S. Justice Department identified as restricting voting rights. They are Arizona, Florida, Alabama, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Wyoming, Tennessee, and Virginia. Six of these states were famous for being infamous states of the former confederacy that applied Jim Crow Laws and Black Codes that echoed the slave codes. North Carolina is one of the states that permit convicted felons to vote upon their release from prison. Although we are able to vote we are still victims of a racial and unjust criminal justice system. We don’t have to be. “National Intelligence for African American Communities Party” is an anti-racist organization that are servants of the people. Our aims are helping the poor, erasing racial criminal justice systems, promoting ex-felons, and prisoners being released, to register to vote, open unconscious and implicit racist in public office are the new planters, and our nations prisons are the new plantations. Voting is a must, ousting those who want African Americans labeled as criminals have to go. We want those seats for a more rational and reasonable public servant. We the poor people and black people have been led like sheep into your pastors of incarceration for long enough. We will vote if we can’t vote we will encourage our family and friends etc. to register to vote. N.I.A.A.C Founder Willie Worley Jr.
