2010: Johnny has all the privileges of a good education provided for him, but he chooses a life of crime and ends up in the prison system. 1 in every 3 black males is in some phase of the correctional system. In the mean time, the liberals blame his plight on social inequalities and an expression of rage by people who feel neglected and turned away by the system instead of alleviating the responsibility that these people have for their own actions.
