More PRISONS than COLLEGES!?!?!?

There are place in America where there are MORE people living in PRISONS then there are in college (particularly in the South). President Obama, proposed to make the first two years of community college free. That may benefit some, cool. But what Black America needs more than FREE community college, is and end to the NUMEROUS policy that continue to place Black males in the criminal justice system, which has a MAJOR trickle down effect into and onto the Black Family dynamic.

The U.S. has more jails than colleges. Here’s a map of where those prisoners live. – The Washington Post.
