life sentences in Mississippi for stealing $11.00! They have already spent 16 years in prison (that is half my life!). The article make the point that had the sisters been black men their story would have been more published and black "leaders" would have been up in arms. I think she has a point. Often black men and black women get into arguments by whom America screws over worse and I think that's pointless. It goes back to slavery where men and women, light-skinned and dark-skinned, were set against the other to keep them from working together. There is no need to keep that going. The truth is I think if given the chance the same thing would be done to any economic disadvantaged man or woman no matter their race. It just so happens to be more likely that such people would be black. This isn't justice. I would like to see justice in this matter. Please read the article and maybe we can get Justice for them. You might need justice next.
