    According to the assessment of radio host, commentator, & film producer Tariq Nasheed,

    Blacks in the United States are singled out for police brutality, mass arrests, & incarcerations which he predicted that in the future, Blacks in America will be put in concentration camps akin to what the National Socialists did to the Jews in Europe during World War II.  Do you observe the singling out of Blacks in the United States for more disparate treatment by law enforcement including arrests & imprisonment?  Do you further contend that these things are preparations for Blacks in the United States to be put in concentration camps in the future?

    Wow Grace , you sure do like to dramatize  the rhetoric !     One day you  question the size of a family for having more than the 2.3  children  and how each one will  matter on the entitlement ladder , the next it's concentration camps for those of color ! Anything at all lately to demonize the American family and our tradition ?

    I understand the importance of the" hard questions " so , why don't you ask a serious hard one  instead  of  giving voice to another moron with a radio program ?   Seriously  , A concentration camp for Blacks ?   How about  getting serious ?   We ALL  should be shocked at this question but  the lack shock  against  todays meaningful   reality is getting too regular today .

      I have a message for you Grace , Black lives Should matter to Blacks Too!

      I like to ask so-called controversial questions to make people think.  However, there are some who are very good at projecting hyperbole such as Tariq Nasheed & Alex Jones.

    I have a very distinct recollection of the same things being said about the Vietnam war protesters back during the war. I don't recall any concentration camps being created or people being shipped off. What I do remember is that a war that never should have been started was ended and American troops, what was left of them, came home. The protesters grew up, finished school, got jobs, and are now the parents, or grandparents, of people protesting for equal rights. I don't know what the result of the protests will be but I do know that when it is over the protesters will grow up, finish school, get jobs, and become the parents and grandparents of the next generation of protesters.

    There is no need to be hysterical. I'm not saying that you are being hysterical, Grace Marguerite Williams, but what you report about the commentary of Mr. Nasheed sounds hyperbolic.

    There are simply three questions that need answering:

    1. Why is it the case that the United States of America has the highest incarcerated population in the entire world, bar none, at over two million?

    2. Why are people of color, in a wildly disproportionate percentage relative to their population, make up fifty percent of this population?

    3. What are we going to do about it?

    There is no need to talk of "concentration camps." There is no need to speak of the National Socialists (Nazis) and the holocaust. Conditions in prison, particularly, the SuperMax, are probably quite horrendous enough; as is, no doubt, the extended periods of "solitary confinement" we hear about, that is so psychologically damaging.

    To quote a lily-white English band:  "Paranoia will destroy ya!"
    When it comes to discrimination, blacks do not have the worst of it.  Who does?  The Native Americans!  They're the ones on reservations, which in some ways, can be compared to concentration camps!  This picture shows 22 people living in a 3 bedroom house on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.  Housing is scarce - serious business in a region known for its harsh winter blizzards.  Unemployment runs around 80%, and alcoholism is astronomical due to the depressing atmosphere.  Even if you were to hitchhike, Pierre, the nearest city, is 120 miles away.
    On the other hand, the greatest cause of violence against blacks is - BLACKS.  Do you ever hear of a cop breaking into someone's house to terrorize its residents?  When was the last time you walked down the street and had a cop make a crude come-on to you?  Has any male relative of yours ever been threatened to be drafted into the police force, instead of a gang?
    To quote another white man, "We have met the enemy - and it is US!"
