Ms. Fitts talks about the enormous profits made by Wall Street and government officials through the multi-billion dollar prison and illegal drug economies at the expense of the African community. She exposes how mandatory minimum and three strikes laws used to lock up young black men boost stock prices for Wall Street firms invested in the prison and drug economy, and how these same Wall Street banks are currently being bailed out by the U.S. government after fleecing black people in the sub-prime scam.
