            Jimmy is a crappy interviewer. But he’d make a great game show host 🤷🏻‍♀️

              I remember going to the main Mississippi state prison back in 1999 to see my cousin and I remember the farms looked just like the Angola farm here in this video.

                  So I'm guessing the white producer of the show came up with the idea to have the black anchor spend a couple of nights in prison. I don't remember seeing Dan Rather or Tom Brokaw in any prison cells. I understand this story needs to be told but maybe it could have been done another way

                    People have been talking about the history of Angola Farm for years and they still haven't done shit about it. It's a Hell hole for Black men to rot in for decades and some for life. Louisiana has some of the most fucked up criminal justice laws in the country and like most prisons, most of those inmates are there for petty drug violations and for being unable to pay restitution when they can't pay their probation fees. Having corny-ass Lester Holt stay there for a couple of days ain't gonna do shit but get him another Emmy.

                          I see everyone has glossed over that the white guy did only 20 years for beating a 16 Year girl to death with a pipe then tried to burn her body up. He's out but you have black men doing life for murders. White privilege at its finest!! Its on the same episode with Lester Holt!

                                        BS!!! He didn't live like an inmate if he had protection around him full time. He lies just like Brian Williams.

                                              This is ridiculous. I'm surprised that the songs by Johnny Cash "Folsom Prison Blues" and Boy George "Pentonville Blues" weren't featured? No mention of "Orange is the New Black" or Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone".....................

                                                    "I hope it starts a lot of conversations" cmon Jimmy Fallon, you can do better than that. 95% of the prisoners will be entering back into society. That means a large portion of your fans used to be part of that 95% and were let out already. I feel like this very important interview was rushed through. Cmon Jimmy you're better than that

                                                      @Michael Jackson I never said 95% of the population. Read what I wrote again.

                                                      95% of inmates is not the same as 95% of the entire population. Its very likely that only 1% of the audience has never been to jail
