National Intelligence for African American Communities Party By Honest Willie Worley Jr., North Carolina They say the key to winning the peoples trust is honestly about who you are. My name is Willie Worley Jr. I am a incarcerated person in the state of North Carolina. I draw political cartoons, I am a prison intelligence correspondent , and I am the author of childrens book. Everyday I fight oppression by trying to reform my oppressor. My oppressor has prepared a place for African Americans. This place has many prisons, and in these prisons my oppressor has many cells. His oppression has caused generations of mental deterioration and mental decay. I am not racist. I am anti-racist. I am a member of the human race, and all of us make up humanity. Although this is commonsense, this means nothing to my oppressors who have redesigned slavery with mass-incarceration. There still exist a white racial system that is bent on oppressing African Americans. We would think the infamous Counterintelligence Program (Cointelpro) that J. Edgar Hoover initiated in 1956 pattern and practices would be no more, considering it ended in 1971. Then statistics show us differently. Statistics show us that 12% of a race is dominating this nations prison population. It also show this 12% commit lesser crimes, and are arrested at a lower rate then their counterparts. Republicans as well as democrats have neglected to address these troubling areas properly. They have only used crime to their political advantage. I admire the strong impact the Tea Party has made with republicans. They have encouraged me to create a charity fund that support a party that address every individuals concerns in the United States. This party main objective is to be servants of the people. To bring forth the truth about the shepards that lead African Americans like sheep into the pastors of incarceration. In 1992 presidential candidate Bill Clinton vowed that he would never permit any republican to be perceived as tougher on crime than he. During Clinton's tenure as president, Washington slashed funding for public housing by 17 billion and boosted corrections by 19 billion. As the laudable sister Michelle Alexander put it. (Effectively making the construction of prisons the nations main housing program for the poor). The Coalition for Prisoner's Rights printed a small article in their (February 2012 vol. 36-m, no. 2 issue), titled "We stand in solidarity with all those celebrating black history.) I quote: Mass-incarceration is the new Jim Crow. From 1970 to 1995, the jailing of African Americans increased 7 fold. African Americans are 12% of the U.S. population--and 53% of its prison population. There are more African Americans enslaved under correctional control today than there were in 1850: unquote. Although this information is troubling, it encourages me even more to reform my oppressor's open, unconcious and implicit racism.
