Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

In a climate where conservatives continue to find ways to criminalize people of color while cutting funds and resources from the federal government, Attorney General Eric Holder somehow has managed to find money to help keep people out of prison. Last week, Holder was in St. Louis lauding the efforts of the Expanding Addicts’ Recovery Netork, or Project EARN, a federal drug court project that helps non-violent drug offenders overcome addiction and find work in exchange for reduced prison terms. 

Said Holder of the program, “If more communities adopt reentry programs like the one I witnessed today in St. Louis, it will reduce criminal justice spending, ensure the fairest possible outcomes, and forge the stronger, safer communities that all of our citizens deserve.”  - COLORLINES
