“put this billboard right in the middle of my city and i couldn’t be more proud. this is for all my friends incarcerated and affected by gentrification.”
In a recent Twitter post, Aminé showed fans the billboard he purchased in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. The billboard bears a striking message, similar to Pittsburgh artist Alisha Wormsley’s “There Are Black People In The Future” billboard display that made headlines earlier this year. Wormsleys landlord, We Do Property, forced Alisha to take her text down over complaints.
In 2016, Oregon ranked seventh in the nation in the disproportionate number of incarcerated African Americans.
Oregon arrests African Americans at a higher rate than most other states, specifically when it comes to African American youth. A 2018 report from the Oregon Council Of Civil Rights states that young African Americans in Multnomah County are 13 times more likely to be indicted than whites.
Also, because of ballot Measure 11, which passed in 1994, mandatory minimum sentences for 15, 16, & 17-Year old’s charged with these crimes to be tried as adults.
Because of the influx of youth incarcerated from these policies, youth bare lifetime consequences such as being denied employment, lack of access to education, and lack of access to housing.
Measure 11 essentially ignores recent science research that shows human brains don’t fully develop until someone’s 20s.
The costs of incarcerating teens in Oregon is nearly $100,000 a year per child.
Shoutout to Aminé for helping spread the message of a problem facing his community.
