Scotty Reid,founder of Black Talk Radio Network and the Black Talk Media Project joins the conversation this week to discuss the impact of private prisons on our community and the President's decision to reverse the Obama administration’s plan to phase out the government use of private prisons?
Good to another strong sista join the panel
This is a bunch of crap.Trump delivered a wonderful speech last night and you cannot bring yourself to give him credit for anything
45 will not make it 4 years.He will step down in shame
Thanks for bringing Mr. Reid on for an extended segment.I agree that the prison to pipeline system is a cash cow for private prison operators and a criminal justice system that does not work in our interest.I appreciate your show because you bring any and all viewpoints.If Scotty is monitoring this page,I would ask after repeal of this legalized slavery,is it his position that incarceration should be abolished.What's the end point?I am particularly disturbed by Max Parthas' Facebook criticism of Tanya and the panel.We are not a monolithic people. The popularity of your show is evidence of that. There is at least one panelist each week that I vehemently disagree with,but that is the same with my inner circle. How boring and unproductive this world would be if we only associated with like minded people.And to Max,why not talk reform when you admit that repeal is unlikely? Just my humble opinion.Keep up the good work Tanya
Great Show Tanya.

Long Time Listener said..."If Scotty is monitoring this page,I would ask after repeal of this legalized slavery,is it his position that incarceration should be abolished.What's the end point?"
My end point is the abolition of slavery. There are abolitionists I work with who want to abolish prisons, I am not one to share that opinion. Maybe a more humane environment to help people address their mental health issues but rapist, murderers, those who violate the life of another person, must be separated from the general population. I am also a realist, the majority population would not go for the abolition of "prisons" so it is an unattainable goal right now but not one I share without someone explaining what they are going to do with rapist and the like.
Another Rachel Dolezal? Prisons serve a purpose and we need them.If privatization can save tax payer dollars,I AM OK WITH IT.

On multiple levels it is not even possible for me to respond to such ridiculous meanderings.
Scotty. You did a great job on the interview. My criticism is in the lack of consideration for your argument, The casual dismissal of the message and the seemingly inability of those gathered to take it at all seriously. You can't go from "yes it's slavery" to "well what can we do to reform it?" That means you just don't get it. Which also means talking to or about me would be an effort in futility and expose yourself in an attempt to use fallacies like ad hominem attacks upon my character. Here's the problem. I've already heard all your arguments. I used to make them myself. The issue here is willful ignorance. You hear but won't listen.
