Profit Outweighs Humanity

This documentary is a must-see for every Black person and even non-Black people living in American today. I had no idea that after the Thirteenth Amendment was passed, Black people were continued to be brutally and viciously forced into servitude and forced labor through convict leasing and peonage.

Even though the hardship and cruelty that Black people deal with today has lessened, the racial profiling, the shooting of innocent Black men at the hands of White police, and the increasing population of Black people in prison continue to prevail.

I am going to forward the documentary link of the movie so others can know the truth of America, the land in which we live.
