It Is What It Is: Systematic Incarceration/Disguised Racism

The Autobiography of Gerald H. Duffy, Jr.

The most explosive, dynamic, and compelling autobiography ever written from behind the walls of the United States Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. Now, after continuously serving more than 20 years inside some of the most violent, dangerous, and drug-infested Federal Penitentiaries throughout this nation, Gerald Hawthorne Duffy, Jr. finally tells his story.


As an African-American, Duffy was raised in Southern Mississippi (by far one of the most racist and poverty-stricken regions in this nation); reared in private Catholic institutions; ran away from home at the age of 15 after experiencing child abuse and domestic violence; was an elite high school football and track athlete; went on to attend college and was awarded one of the highest academic honors as a freshman; yet became a central figure in the largest and most profitable Federal cocaine conspiracies to originate from Southern Mississippi in the late 80s through the early 90s whose networking centers extended as far as Miami, New York, and Houston.


This story depicts Duffy’s childhood years, takes a glimpse into the struggles of college life, and looks into the vicious “underworlds” of America. It is intertwined with statistical facts and professional analysis concerning African Americans' financial, social, educational, and political conditions in the United States. Duffy exposes the so-called “War on Drugs,” unveils who that war is being waged against, and reveals the true hidden agenda behind the White Power Structure in America.
