Well I believe the article- They started selling used cars, which Jim Bob repaired on his own. Then they started a towing business that they sold for a profit years later. In 1994 they began their real estate career. The first big
score was converting an old chicken hatchery into commercial rental
units. and then they got into leasing land to a cell phone
company for its transmission tower. Who cares who furnished the house? They paid for it and if sponsors furnished it good for them. So by the time TLC meet them they were doing ok…I have had to eat a lot of peanut butter and Jelly but doesn’t mean I still have to..
Alexander’s focus on the War on Drugs, while valid, ignores the more nuanced forces that helped birth the New Jim Crow. In his new book Locked In , John F. Pfaff, a law professor at Fordham University, acknowledges that mass incarceration is “one of the biggest social problems the United States faces today,” but he then proceeds to debunk the “standard story” put forth my Alexander and others—that today’s appalling rates of incarceration are driven exclusively by the racist persecution of minorities for nonviolent drug crimes. In fact, Pfaff points out, since the rising wave of incarcerations peaked around 2010, nonviolent drug offenders have accounted for only about one-fifth of new prisoners. The War on Drugs, he concludes, “simply hasn’t sent enough people to state prisons for it to be a major engine of state prison growth.”
