Discussing the War on Drugs
moderatelyradicalliberal wrote this comment in Charles Johnson’s thread on “The Tea Party vs. the Catholic Church:”
Actually unless he wants to talk about the War on young black men Drugs, he still wouldn’t have had a defensible argument. If you have approximately 1/3 of any groups male population in the correctional/prison industrial complex in some sort of way at some point in their lives, that’s going to lead to an awful lot of that groups women having a hard time finding husbands even if they want one. But nobody wants to discuss that. It’s a lot easier to compare them to animals and leave out the fact how many of them are literally in cages.
MSNBC, surprisingly, tackled it head on:
It may be that changing economic times and role of America in the world are pressing the United States to analyze issues that were ignored for a long time.
