Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill stood in federal court Monday and compared her experience in the music business to the slavery her ancestors endured before a judge sentenced her to three months in prison for failing to pay about $1 million in taxes over the past decade.
*“I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them,” Hill said before U.S. Magistrate Madeline Cox Arleo. **“I had an economic system imposed on me.”

First of all whether she is the child of slavery is debatable. Secondly, this ploy is nothing more than a ploy to gain sympathy for someone who deliberately did not pay their taxes.
Perhaps Holder will pardon her.*
