I do not trust a republic’s promise of equal justice and equal protection of our laws. I look at the demographics of our prison populations and the historical evidence showing the actions of our nation’s prosecutors.
I do not trust the words of politicians who communicate they support mental health awareness. I look for evidence of how they treat the least among us that suffer from it as they walk the streets.
Slavery has not ended in this republic. 13 just restricted only the government to a light that is green.
