Naoka Foreman Examines “Humanomics” With Meek Mill
With the very first of The Majority, entitled Probation: The Leash, being about the disproportionate incarceration of rapper Meek Mill, social activist, Naoka Forman decided to make her sixth issue about Meek’s release from prison.
In this month’s issue, Foreman compares the treatment of Stanford University swimmer, Brock Turner, to musical artist Meek Mill and how their social relations create different outcomes within the justice system. Foreman goes in-depth about how an affluent pedigree can alter judgment in a system that is presented to be fair and just. Astounding and appalling, she ties in how social capital is a luxury, inherited by class privilege and “promotes the development or underdevelopment of a human being.” Digital and print copies are expected with upcoming releases.
