Jim Crow Texas

An innocent man Anthony Graves spent 18 years in jail and now Texas is denying him compensation because of "wording" in his release papers.  Yup, Texas has come up with a  new way to take away innocent people of color's freedom.

The Texas justice system has come up with a new way to screw over black men who are innocent.  Black Americans  face it,  we're living in the NEW JIM CROW era.  America the land of the FREE does not include black people in the FREE part if you live in TEXAS.  Well...what do you expect with a governor like Rick Perry who is a confederate sympathizer. 

Texas appears to be a little backwards and evidently does not like diverse communities since they have a history of locking up innocent black men.  Graves is not the first black man that was found innocent in Texas.

It was just a few months ago that Texas was rewriting history and leaving people of color out it. Deep in the heart of Texas are some racial preferences for incarcerating innocent black men.

This man has spent 18 years of his life in prison and now Texas wants to renege and refuse to obey the law to compensate him for those wasted years of his life.  A man did not break the law, but the state of Texas is breaking a law and denying him what is rightfully due him.  It is something wrong with the justice system if they can lock an innocent man up, take away 18 years of his life, and then spit in his face when they realize that they made a mistake.  Folks there is no justice like Texas' injustice!

This is a great post and one that should receive national attention. But it won't because the Blacks in Texas are weak, fearful and politically inept. They are a do-nothing class of people. Hence, the Gov and racists like him Whites routinely intimdate, abuse and cheat Blacks at will. Any Black living in Texas can expect injustice because justice is not available in that state.

No doubt they can't understand why he'd complain when they were KIND enough to provide him with room and board for eighteen years.
