To think that legalization of marijuana or of any drug in the United States and Mexico is going to stop violence in Mexico is to ignore the root of our social illness. Violence is the result of economic exploitation, of poverty. Violence manufactures your very legal computer, your jeans, your shoes, your tv, your iPod. The blood of Mexicans is in your luxuries and in your vices, in your comfort, not in laws that preclude you from smoking your marijuana cigarette or sniffing your coke in public spaces. Blood and pain is in the tomato you eat, the flowers you send to your wife, the poultry you buy. Once marijuana is legalized, Mexican workers, like many other dark-skin human beings in the world, will still cater to your needs and wants and will be subjected to slave-like conditions so you can have the best pot at the best price.
In this interview, CNN’s Don Lemon interviews Freddie Sharp, 27, a person who I suspect is classified as “white” and who also survived a so-called “Bath Salt” overdose.
"Bath Salts", not to be confused with the Epsom salt actually used for bathing, is an amalgamation of household chemicals. This poisenous and dangerous mixture is being cited as the possible cause of the recent cannibalism and self-mutilation incidents in recent news reports.
However, the causes for these alleged cannibalistic attacks are, as of yet, unconfirmed and extreme suspicion regarding the reported causes of these attacks is advised.
There needs to be a serious investigation as to why there is such rampant drug and alcohol abuse in white culture, both prescription and so-called illicit drugs. From meth to vicoden, so many people are incapable of getting through the day completely sober.
Yet, the prisons are filled with black and non-white people convicted of non-violent drug crimes, some of whom may be there based on falsified evidence.
Isn’t it obvious to everyone now that the so-called war on drugs is really a war on non-white people?
Replace White Supremacy with Justice!
More Black males are in greater confinement (prison) today than were imprisoned by formal slavery in 1850. Marc Lamont Hill, Professor of Education and African Studies at Columbia University, reveals in the embedded video how most of the Black males in greater confinement today were convicted of drug-use related crimes which is a medical issue not a criminal one.
Victims of Racism, are subject to tremendous amounts of mistreatment which includes joblessness, enforcement official abuse (so called police brutality), substandard housing, perpetual lack of resources, disinformation and psychological abuse from their education and the mass media, and so on and so forth. The system of Racism (White Supremacy), unfortunately, causes Victims of Racism to abuse themselves and one another and to engage in many forms of escapism such as self-medicating, conspicuous consumption, and the preoccupation with Racist media and entertainment. Ultimately, Racist Man and Racist Woman, are most to blame. They have purposefully caused this deleterious environment in which Victims of Racism live and these Racists (White Supremacists), contrary to all their protestations, are in the best position to rectify it. And yet, they predictably refuse to do so. Therefore, even though Victims of Racism are currently at a tremendous disadvantage, we still must vigorously pursue the replacement of White Supremacy with Justice so we can solve “the problem” and finally begin the healing process necessary to correct the systematic abuse we’ve experienced for centuries.
Other Important Points Gathered from the Video
- The prison boom comes from the “War on Drugs” which turned out to be a war on small time black and other non-white drug users and non-white people in general.
- Drug use was at an all-time low when the so-called War on Drugs was declared by Racists (White Supremacists).
- $88,000 is spent to incarcerate Juveniles each year while $9000 each year is spent on a youth’s education.
- The system of Racism (White Supremacy) invests in “first class prisons and second class schools”.
- Early education, literacy rates, community involvement are directly related to the size and characteristics of a prison population.
- 1 in 15 Black young people have at least one parent incarcerated.
- Enforcement officials target predominately black areas for behavior (drug use) that occurs at equal or even higher rates in predominately white areas.
- Mass incarceration (greater confinement) deteriorates a “community” as it prevents people from parenting their offspring and removes ‘human resources’ from predominately non-white areas which are already stressed.
Black men make up 6.5% of the US population, but 40.2% of the prison population
