Truth & Social Justice Spotlight

   Ever wondered when alleged progressives in Liberal and  Conservative social ,or traditional  media would shine a light into past , and on going wrongs at home , as opposed to only highlighting the atrocities across the globe , that - surprise , surprise -works to their benefits? 
"Throughout the world, 250 million 5 to 14 year olds are employed; one half of these work full-time.  Many children work in industries where they are exposed to harmful chemicals or other dangerous conditions."  
 One cannot also help but be repulse at the efforts of those that have likewise  suddenly hijacked  Civil Society , in their efforts to perform well appreciated ,good -again- far and wide , but yet  fail to either place the hands of their own business and political leaders to the fire , or tackle blatant social , economic and political injustice closer to  home . we'll start with gun manufacturers and the politicians that cuddle them.
 If  soccer balls are produced en-massed for Nike in Pakistan , and  America baseballs manufacturers grew rich off  child labor   in non democratic Haiti,while both had staunch political and economic   support from America, then who holds some culpability?
Care to guess what became of the kids of Miss Essy , and her husband  with the wonderful scars that resulted from violent abuses at the hands of savage  European plantation owners?
For the record, his descendants were never compensated for the free labor they gave to the development of this country as well as all of old Europe, and that’s a tragedy that should not be condone. 
Did you know  that "American prisons produce 100% of US military helmets, ammunition belts, bullet-proof vests, ID tags, shirts, pants, tents, bags, and canteens." They also supply 98% of equipment assembly services, 93% of paints and paintbrushes, 92% of stove assemblies, 46% of body armor, 36% of home appliances, 30% of headphones, microphones and speakers, 21% of office furniture, and much more?” 
   Now ask yourself , if this 2.4 million ,of which 15% are wrongfully convicted prisoners are unable to vote , as well , then what kind of government are you electing, and who benefits when race , and class , as depicted  by  black  ,brown ,red,yellow citizens /immigrants ,and a few poor  whites ,are  thrown into the equations ? 
  Speaking of concerned for kids ,worst yet ,7.3 million children have at least one parent in jail or prison. Tragically  70 % of  the kids , would follow such a parent along that career part ?
