Hmmm this is interesting. I wonder if there was some sort of ideological change in the ruling class
WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT: neoliberalism is a racist ideology. From Thatcher to Reagan to Pinochet to Clinton, it's brutality against people of color cannot be overstated. They destroy their unions, throw them in prison, and force them to do slave labor so the white ruling class can have their delicious treaties and Iphones
@SunSaint all graphs of America Per Decade should be required by international law to have reagan's mugshot and a big arrow
@SunSaint a really wild Easter egg in this graph is the tiny juvenile detention line that follows the same trend.
@SunSaint interesting correlation with Reaganomics
@SunSaint *resists urge to make snarky comment about us politics*
@nev no snark on my page
@SunSaint Wait, prison != jail?
"Think short-term and long-term. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement and/or local government agencies, and are designed to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. ... Prisons, on the other hand, are typically operated by either a state government or the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP)."
@SunSaint this is so infuriating. there was literally 'gangs of new york' type sectarian urban warfare and mob shit happening in the 1920s, but i guess since the main combatants weren't black there was no mass incarceration
@SunSaint this is why we gotta vote for biden! (jk)
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
