On our previous broadcast we started what will become a part of our regular narrative here on The Abolitionist’s Daily- a thorough breakdown and explanation of the Fed’s report on Ferguson. Just like a book club, we’re going to read through this together, because its just that important to the movement. The government has given us an amazing tool, and we’re going to find a way to use it to end modern day slavery. Period.
In addition to our analysis, we will also look at the Mayor of Ferguson’s response. After all of the numbers, the quotes, the emails and obviousness of the truth, would you believe that he says Ferguson doesn’t have a race problem? Amazing.
We’ll also look at a report from the Vera Institute of Justice, which explains in detail about the numbers of people incarcerated and detained in America who are there for non-violent, drug, traffic or property related offenses..often “victimless” crimes, which have ballooned our numbers to up over 2 Million people. Their estimate is as high as 75% are so affected.
