My inmate number is in ND7568. The title of this piece is “Slavery is on the ballot.” This is Kenjuan Congo, Jr. calling from a prison behind enemy lines.
The Thirteenth Amendment punishment clause allows for slavery, and that ratification to the Constitution was in 1865. In it states neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime, where the parties that have been duly convicted, still exists within the United States or any place subject to the jurisdiction.
Well, basically they said no slavery except for those who are convicted of a crime. You heard of a tax loophole, but how can you have a loophole for slavery?
On November 8, voters in Alabama, Louisiana, Oregon, Tennessee, and Vermont will decide the state with slavery. In Louisiana, it’s called Yes on Seven. In Alabama, Amendment Four. In Oregon, it’s called Measure 112. In Tennessee, amendment Three. And In Vermont, it is called PR2.
As I fight against enslavement off of my back, I gotta ask y’all to vote and put an end to this atrocity. If you are not in one of these five states, please encourage all the people you know in these states to vote and abolish slavery. After all the lies they told me in school, I thought I would never say it this, but slavery is on the ballot.
This is Kenjuan Congo, Jr. calling from a prison camp behind enemy lines. All power to the people.
