Truth, while being absolute, isn’t always enduring. When the game is played along these lines, the water gets muddy on what is technically a lie...and what is simply outdated information. Welcome to the wonderful world of propaganda. Let’s formally define it before delving into a specific subject of interest.

Why...? Because tremendous harm is being done when untruths are presented and accepted as facts. Most Black youth today are believing this propaganda, and what is such a belief doing to them? Depriving them of hope and painting a picture that prison is an inevitable path while college is an unrealistic dream. The reality is they should be more hopeful today than ever before knowing that prison is completely avoidable and college is a real and achievable goal.
