  •  this is not just BP's greed (10+ / 0-)

    this is the south, forced labor by inmates is hardly new, inmates are predominantly black males, and its why many say that the grossly unfair application of the criminal justice code is not all that different than slavery.

    Its wrong.  Its routine.   Many are seeing it for the first time because of the high profile of the Gulf spill on this site.  Its part and parcel of what's still wrong with America and how huge a distance we have yet to come on so many fronts.
