The State of California spends a little less than 8k a year per college student. It spends over 50k a year per prisoner. It’s obvious where their priorities lie, considering more black men are in prison than college. That’s what happens when you turn prisons into a for profit system. Personally, I think saying “Don’t become just another statistic” is patronizing and dishonest, putting all the blame squarely on black men. It should be more like “Don’t let them make you another statistic in their capitalistic system”.
