What if the phrase “jailhouse rock” is more than a synonym for “blackface?”
What if it has more to do with something as deeply racist as the practice of using a black person to sell your product?
And what if it’s actually an expression of how you feel about black people?
That’s what the new documentary “Jailbreak,” which follows a pair of teenage girls, Mommy Joe and Bubba, as they break out of a black house in a suburb of Chicago to make music and have fun, is about.
But what it’s really about is black people.
As the duo put it, “It’s about the idea that there is no such thing as a good black person.”
The first season of the show was released last month, and since then, it’s become something of a hit.
“I think a lot of people didn’t expect it to be this big of a phenomenon,” Mommys mother told NPR.
The girls are members of the popular, high school band, “Baby Bop,” which has been making waves in the music industry and is one of the most talked-about acts in the country.
“The song is called ‘Jails,’ and I feel like the name’s just kind of perfect for this group,” Bubba told NPR, adding that the phrase is also about “black kids being able to go out and do whatever they want to do.”
The girls, ages 13 and 16, were born to white parents, but they say they grew up around their African-American father.
“When we were kids, we would always play around, and we’d play music, and the music would just change.
It would change so much, we just wanted to do whatever we wanted to,” Bubb said.
But we just played music. “
It was kind of the opposite of the ‘black music,’ where we would be in the house playing, like, the rap, the country, the soul.
But we just played music.
I mean, we were not in the club, we weren’t in the hood, we didn’t even go to school.
We were just like, ‘Play whatever you want.'”
The girls’ parents eventually left the family and they began taking jobs as a family.
Bubba said that their parents tried to “push us out” of the house by pushing the girls into drugs and drinking.
“That was the most horrible thing I’ve ever been through, so I just really wish they had just put me in the hospital,” she said.
They say they’ve learned how to live by themselves, but it’s hard to ignore the racial and economic disparities that still exist in this country.
As Bubba described, black people are more likely to be arrested for a traffic offense, to be charged with a drug offense, and to have their homes broken into and robbed than any other group in the U.S. They also have a higher rate of unemployment than the white population.
But they have the lowest incarceration rate in the nation.
And while the show focuses on the teenage girls’ experiences, the underlying themes that drive the show are universal.
“What’s so great about this show is the fact that it is really about black kids, about black pain,” Bubbs mother said.
In the first episode, the girls sing a song about a boy they once knew who was killed by a white police officer, but was then falsely convicted and sentenced to prison.
“Jails,” which features interviews with black artists and activists, is a perfect example of how the song has taken on a life of its own.
It’s about how a black boy is taken from his family and thrown into prison.
Bubb explains that her mother and the boy’s father had been arrested for drug dealing, so they were sent to prison together.
“So they go to the prison and they’re sitting on the front of a van, and they were both sitting on each other’s shoulders,” she told NPR earlier this month.
“We were able, for whatever reason, to call the cell phone and we were able call our mother,” she recalled. “
“She got on the phone and she said, ‘Oh, we have a cell, let’s call you. “
We were able, for whatever reason, to call the cell phone and we were able call our mother,” she recalled.
“She got on the phone and she said, ‘Oh, we have a cell, let’s call you.

They also say they were able “to find out what was going on, and so we were like, okay, well, there’s nothing we can do about it.
