North Carolina Prison Focus Willie Worley Jr., North Carolina Just recently I was ask the question by a prison guard was I racist. I smiled at him and carefully explained to him that I am not a racist but could detect unconscious implicit and conscious racism in others like himself. He than asked me why I felt he was a racist. My reply was this: 1.) Your whole day revolves around trying to manipulate and harass African Americans 2.) You will ignore the illegal actions of a caucasian Americans to focus on a African American. 3.) When you hear something about a caucasian American prison guard there is no merit to it in your eyes, but if someone is telling you about an African American prison guard you automatically start collecting intel on this subject. This prison guard upbringing obviously exposed him to certain stereotypical conversations that shaped his outlook on African Americans. I have been doing time for quite awhile, and you will be surprised how seven or eight prison guards with this train of thought can change the whole dynamics of a prison. Alot of individuals think that prison should not be a cake walk for prisoners, but a place for punishment. Punishment should not be mistaken for racially motovated acts of brutality and abuse. When anybody suffer obvious abuse, they develope resentment for the causer or anybody they can identify with the discomfort they had to go through. Prison guards that inflict unconscious implicit and conscious acts of racism under the color of law are indirectly responsible for prisoners inability, thus adding fuel to the prisoners burning aberrations. This long existing pattern and practice has been the cause of African Americans dysfunctions for far to long. Michelle Alexander breaks down the simplicities of this in the New Jim Crow. Her New York Best Seller. In her "Introduction" to the book she articulately wrote I quote: "what has changed since the collapse of Jim Crow has less to do with the basic structure of our society than with the language that we use to justify it. In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race explicitly as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. So we don't. Rather than rely on race, we use our criminal justice system to label people of color "criminals" and than engage in all the practices we supposedly left behind. Today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans: Unquote. What Mrs. Alexander wrote sums up a problem that is curable, but the existing pattern and practices of Jim Crow will try to justify the social derangements of North Carolina Prison Focus. Which is to keep as many prisoners as aggravated as possible. This is done by placing one or two prison employees on each shift that disrupts the natural order of incarceration. Their targets are minorities. They focus on busting African Americans for violations even when there aren't any. Prisons will go through stages of denial in North Carolina just to focus on protecting one prison guards irrationalities. The prison can know the guards acts of brutality and abuse are true, but still will deny he has done anything wrong. Thus launching a campaign of corruption, laying a path for it's continuation. Not only do the prison protect and fund campaigns of corruption, but so do the criminal and judicial institutions in North Carolina as well as the nation. Don't take my word for it, just watch your regular news program or read you local newspaper. They will clearly show you the methods and techniques that led up to their anti-investigations that justify their actions creating a dangerous environment.
