Meek Mill and Prison Reform
On The Uncensored Truth Podcast host O’God and Sam Ant had a very controversial discussion on race and incarceration of Blacks. Philly rapper Robert Rihmeek Williams aka Meek Mill posted a video about prisoners need a new set of rights. In this explosive video on prison the statement, we learn where Meek Mill and prison reform meet.
Blacks have the highest incarceration rate
Meek really hit the nail on the head with the video. Often celebrities don’t use their platform to speak on racial inequality, according to New York Times. What Meek shared about his own prison time and the unfair practices of our justice system was very timely, to say the least. Here is some of what Meek discussed:
“I’m blessed — I’m busy recording an album and catching up with friends and fans as my family and I make plans to celebrate the holidays. It’s a far cry from last year, when the season passed with me behind bars. I send my prayers to all those who are still in the web of the system: Please know you are not forgotten.”
Meek Mill and Prison Reform… Where Does He Stand?
Meek then goes on to talk about how prison is a modern day slave plantation. And, that he hopes to see change in the near future. The very interesting yet disturbing thing about the conversation is at any moment he can be put behind bars again. However, if there was a resolve in his voice that was riveting and inspiring at the same time. This is one interview you don’t want to miss.
