It’s been over a year since the President has been in office, and we are asking him to address what is happening in the prisons and on our inner city streets because for the people on the bottom there is no “agenda.” He has to answer this because 6.7 MILLION of us are under “correctional supervision” and we are losing our communities.
From Obama Answer this.
The A.W.N.I.A.A Project (All We Need is an Answer) by dj939
The album was sparked by a letter written to Obama by a prisoner asking him to address what is happening in the prisons and on our inner city streets. All we want is to make the change Obama spoke of a reality for all. He has to answer this because 6.7 MILLION of us are under “correctional supervision” and we are losing our communities and because for the people on the bottom there is no “agenda.” There is nothing telling the prisons they have a responsibility to be part of the rehabilitation that needs to happen. Even if you chose to punish people in prison- you can only go so far before they turn to animals. Behind these bars and on our inner city streets, many youth feel like this message of “hope” and “change” did not mean then. This album is us reaching to the top. This movement has been build on the vision of Darrell Jones who has been incarcerated for the past 25 years at MCI Norfolk, the same prison that Malcolm X resided. This album is not about “getting at” the President. We have love for Obama, but we are holding him to what he said that he is “Everyone’s President” and the days of being 3/5 of a human being are over. These kids deserve that much. This album represents a chance, a shot; somebody trying.
- I stand with them. I am very happy to see this message being directed at President Obama. I will be writing him a letter on this subject including my own story.
