Whoa, last weekend, at Civic Center downtown San Francisco, a performer from Hiphopforchange know as Khafre J
gave us the low down on the Gangsta Hip Hop issue. It seems that the major financial people here are also major players in the prisons for profit scam that our legislators have fallen over themselves to endorse.
He was a fine looking and sounding musician and I suggest people endorse this organization. His pitch, at the GMO gathering (anti genetically modified food) was for land in the Bayview for self help groups to grow veggies.
I tried to ask the Center for Media and Democracy to investigate the claim that there was this financial association between the hip hop industry and the private prison industry but this AM the website claimed it could not accept any submissions because their spam filter was down. Consider sending them this idea for this group.
