    I thought of one more to add to this list: Prison reform. People (especially minorities) who go to prison for minor crimes often come out hardened criminals. The conditions in an American prison are absolutely horrifying. I would sooner kill myself than spend a week inside one of them. In addition to the rampant sexual slavery that most people find so hilarious, there are race-based prison gangs. These provide "criminal education" to newcomers and encourage violence both inside and outside of prison. Furthermore, they promote racialist identities that undoubtedly make it more difficult for people who truly want to turn their lives around, but worry about "selling out" or "acting white."

    I believe we should also label gangs that have a history of violence as terrorist groups and should be treated likewise.
