On the latest episode of Day 1, we got in the studio with documentarian Rahiem Shabazz to talk about just how deep the prison system gets when figuring qualifiers for future inmates. It’s sad really, but super important.
So many children of color — boys in particular — get tagged as jailbirds young, and it’s pretty much all for the sake of capitalism.
Shabazz shared his own story about his experience with the penal system in NYC and the effect it had on his family. He also spoke on how he pulled himself out of the matrix upon release and built a successful career in hip-hop journalism until finally pulling together his documentary Elementary Genocide. Whew. Good stuff man.
And we have DJ Wally Sparks with the perfect mix as always…
