Prisoners of the world unite! Yes, inmates in as many as 40 prisons in 24 states, last Friday began a nationwide (well – kind of) strike. The Union (yes – Union) Organizing Committee stated they are striking to end prison slavery. They are sick and tired of being degraded, dehumanized and exploited. Well, I have a few choice words for the prisoners union.
Freedom of speech is well and truly dead on American college and university campuses as freshman are told what they can and cannot say and what they can and cannot ask of other students. One oppressive and racist example is describing America as the “Land of Opportunity.” I’m not real happy about this either.Tags: Clark University diversity officer Freedom of Speech inmates International Workers of the World microaggression Prison prisoner strike prisoners union safe space
