Look closely at these numbers, more specifically the “Alleged Reports” versus the “Unfounded Reports”, nearly 50% of the “Alleged Reports” were “Unfounded”. Now the definition of “Unfounded” can mean one of two things; the first is that there is abuse going on but not enough evidence to substantiate foul play the second is that some one brought up false allegations, either intentionally or unintentionally. That’s 46.4% of cases in Cook County that lack substantial evidence. That’s 15,902 cases in 2017 that have been determined to be “Unfounded”. And that’s 15,902 children, most likely more, who have to go through the system and be labeled.

#FreedomOrDeaths ACV Bath Concoction:
DISCLAIMER: Before you try this understand how your body works, everyone is made up different so I will not be held responsible if there’s any malfunction
1/2 bottle of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar (32 oz)
1/2 cup of Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 cup of Organic Lemon Juice
6 Green Tea Bags, steeped
2X2X2″ cube of African Black Soap
In order for you to really feel the effects of this mixture it must be concentrated, which means use 25-50% LESS water than you would normally. You will feel slightly dizzy when you go to stand up and this is because of the Apple Cider Vinegar though I’m not sure why. It will pass in about 5-10 minutes.
One should also note that under the Clinton administration the 1994 Crime Bill was initiated. It implemented the three-strikes mandatory life sentencing for repeat offenders and $9.6bn in funding for prisons. Yeah they say crime was down, thats because everybody was getting locked the hell up for life. It left black communities shattered, in shards, nearly lifeless. In the 22 years since the bill was passed, the federal prison population more than doubled. In 1994, the Bureau of Prisons held 95,162 inmates; today that number is 214,149. I don’t want another Clinton in office but, we’ve been duped time and time again. Lets be honest, neither party has nothing on paper thats for the uplift of black people. We should be doing for ourselves regardless. If you are voting for Hillary are you voting for the stanky-leg dancing, hot-sauce slanging version or the round ’em up, lock ’em up version. Pick your poison.
