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

Project America: Crime: Prison Population: Prison Population by Race


A new Amnesty International  report reviewing the increasing use of the death penalty worldwide has found that the United States is among the top five nations putting people to death. Only a small number of countries are responsible for the increase in executions around the world, reported Amnesty USA in a press release.

In the annual review, the human rights organization found executions rose by about 15 percent in 2013 with the United States taking fourth place carrying out 39 executions in 2013.  (Only China, Iraq and Iran kill more of their citizens.) While the total number of executions has decreased  in the U.S. compared to 2012 (43), the report found Texas accounted for 41 percent of all executions and that southern states accounted for 82 percent overall.  Alternet
