"In the late nineteenth century, coal companies wished to keep their skilled prison laborers for as long as they could, leading to denials of “short time”. Today, a slightly different economic incentive can lead to similar consequences. CCA [Corrections Corporation of America] is paid per prisoner. If the supply dries up, or too many are released too early, their profits are affected… Longer prison terms mean greater profits, but the larger point is that the profit motive promotes the expansion of imprisonment."

The Harlem Hellfighters: When Pride Met Courage 
Walter Dean Myers
The story of the Harlem Hellfighters is not simply one of victory in a war… . It is the story of men who acted as men, and who gave a good account of themselves when so many people thought, even hoped, that they would fail. What defines a true hero? The “Harlem Hellfighters,” the African American soldiers of the 369th Infantry Regiment of World War I, redefined heroism — for America, and for the world. At a time of widespread bigotry and racism, these soldiers put their lives on the line in the name of democracy. The Harlem Hellfighters: When Pride Met Courage is a portrait of bravery and honor. With compelling narrative and never-before-published photographs, Michael L. Printz Award winner Walter Dean Myers and renowned filmmaker Bill Miles deftly portray the true story of these unsung American heroes.

Extremely saddened to hear the passing of @rip_arb. As he was working on his car one of the jacks gave up and the car unfortunately fell on top of him. We hear that he was a genuine car enthusiasts despite being so young (17 years of age), and that one of his dreams was for others to see the pride and joy he was working on. Let’s take a second and send his family our thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace @rip_arb, you will be missed. #stancenation
