Sleeping Brotha - John Glover Speaks

I saw this video of Facebook, it was shared by a brotha I know because we have some common friends. I thank him for sharing the video because it’s something I have looked into for a couple years now, The Prison Industrial System and how laws and things have been put in place to place our people back in a form of slavery. I’m a firm believer in “Knowledge Is Power” and the brother did his part in spreading this knowledge on Facebook and I’m doing my part in passing along the valuable information packed video. Where the video originally came from I’m not sure but I am trying to find out.

Brothas, WAKE UP!!!!! Enjoy the video, make comments or pose your question.

Amazing message. Reminds me of an old game show called Truth or Consequences. I always thought that was a cryptic label that really applied to a much more serious enterprise. Do your community, your family, and your future a favor…. pull together a group of young men for a 30 minute conversation. Call it a Wake Up To Get Turned Up Event and MAKE them sit down to listen to this brother drop some truth into their hearing. Then before they leave, ask them what they will do to change the plan that the system has laid out for their lives. List the action items in social media. Let's make them accountable. Let us know their truth…we already know the consequences.
