“Don’t you know that slavery was outlawed?”
“No,” the guard said, “you’re wrong. Slavery was outlawed with the exception of prisons. Slavery is legal in prisons.”
I looked it up and sure enough, she was right. The Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution says:
“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”
Well, that explained a lot of things. That explained why jails and prisons all over the country are filled to the brim with Black and Third World people, why so many Black people can’t find a job on the streets and are forced to survive the best way they know how. Once you’re in prison, there are plenty of jobs, and, if you don’t want to work, they beat you up and throw you in a hole. If every state had to pay workers to do the jobs prisoners are forced to do, the salaries would amount to billions… Prisons are a profitable business. They are a way of legally perpetuating slavery. In every state more and more prisons are being built and even more are on the drawing board. Who are they for? They certainly aren’t planning to put white people in them. Prisons are part of this government’s genocidal war against Black and Third World people.

theez r my top fantasies right now:
1.) i have my own small home in la. i live w a nastily gorgeous sig other or alone. im a studio artist/potter. i have a beautiful jewelry box thats nastily gorgeous w shiny things and flowers and gems on it. inside is a beautful assortment of weed and weed perophenalia. i sit at my kitchen table, 4 grilled cheeses in the oven, rolling a FAT blunt of delicious home grown chronic. im wearing black sparkly spandex shorts and a black muscle shirt. i roll my blunt as a slight breeze enters the kitchen and wafts the smell of the grilled cheese in my beautiful face. Nugz and dolphin r visiting from canada. nugz, dolphin, and my sig other enter the kitchen and we all smoke the blunt and eat our grilled cheeses. the grilled cheeses r made up of delicious bread, zaatar mixed w mayo, goat cheese, chedder, cilantro, tomato and another layer of cheddar cheese. we cut the sandwiches in half for easy eating, get mad high and eat them. the end.
2.) my second fantasy takes place in iran of the future. esfehan of 2030 is exactly the same except there r no laws on what u can wear or anything like that. its extremely chill. i go there for a residency or something where i have a studio in the city. i take a beautiful significant other w me. we walk along the zayanderoot river EXTREMELY baked off beautiful weed brownies made w high quality home grown chronic. its sunny but not 2 warm, like vancouver in spring. im wearing a large button up shirt w beautiful lacy cuffs and collar and comfy black sparkly spandex shorts and comfy but cute sneaker. a brand of sneakers possibly invented around 2020 that r sparkly beautiful and comfy. maybe w mirrors on them. my sig other has a bowl cut and fancy jeans. we r HIGH AS FUCK walking hand in hand by zayanderut smelling all the pretty flowerz and running into sexy friendz. hahah these fantasies r all slightly sexual wutvr. a sexy friend is also visiting and we r all high walking. we r so high that we dont have the munchies yet. we get to si o se pol and sit in the water. at this point it is hot enough for this. we chill in the water and then go get pizza and milkshakes and pass out in the park. we sleep for a few hours and then go get tea and hookah under si o se pol. we r all very flirtatious.

i accidently stole from a hilarious awesome friend that i wanna b better friends with. its a huge grey shirt. it used to be black but now its gray black. u kno wut im saying? like a faded ass black. it also has lime green text on it. i feel like this shirt rly suits me. and i think it looks rly good on me. i feel like my skin color is grey green brown. like i feel there is tons of grey in my skin color u know? i feel like when i wear grey it makes a lot of sense and it looks good. I feel like i definitly have green in my skin too. like for sure. in farsi when someone has dark skin, u say theyre “green”. i feel like this makes a lot of sense for me. i feel like i definitly have green skin. my skin color looks really good with this shirt. my tummy hurts right now so i put my hand on my tummy and i noticed how beautiful my grey green brown skin looked on my faded grey black shirt.
