Prisons overcrowded and schools is too
Cause they undereducate ya and got a place for you
Niggas go to prison, the new age slavery
Now you know why they undereducate your baby

from Killer Mike (Ft. Funkadelic) – Burn Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Prisons are overcrowded with no violent inmates. Most of whom are in jail on drug related charges. The schools that are children attend don’t teach them life skills on ways to pass a graduation test. Prisoners are then forced to work jobs that they only receive wages of less than a quarter an hour. This is legalized slavery. UNICOR is a government run company that uses inmate labor produce goods for sale. Public school will not teach your child the skills to succeed in today world.
