She was witnessed buying the crack, not selling it. Anything else and she would have had a felony charge. Looks to be a seventh degree offense, but I am no where close to a lawyer. http://law.justia.com/newyork/codes/penal/idx...

It appears that she was charged accordingly for the crime, although I think she will end up dead before she is able to stay clean. History will repeat itself.

Single parent of two,
If she was black she would be facing 5 to 10 years period. There are two standards one for whites where she gets a slap on the hand and one for blacks, did you hear the cell door close.
I can't beleive only 21 hits on this. If she was black the whites would be calling her every name except the child of christ. Just goes to show you what a bunch of pigs they are.

It just goes to show you that people and I mean all people will screw up not just BLACKS...... This is cute very very cute.
Let me first say that racist comments from either sides are wrong, however, I have to agree with you! Had this been Angela Bassett, Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, or even Halle Berry the racist comments would be coming out of the woodwork from my white race. If you don't believe me, check ALL of the forums where blacks and drugs and/or any other crime is reported. VERY HYPOCRITICAL!!!

I don't think she should be overly criticized OR spared from criticism due to her race or the fact that she is a celebrity. I'm sorry she fell off the wagon when she SEEMED to be doing so well (or maybe she just hadn't been caught until now?). I hope she can get herself together for her own sake and the sake of her children. This relapse is just more ammunition for her husband to use against her to keep the children away. This is just another sad case where addiction hurts more than just the person snorting/smoking/swallowing.

I know better. I did a social work internship in the emergency room at Lexington Medical Center a couple years back and I can promise there's just as many white people coming in over there all mucked up on drugs as there are black folks. I still don't get why everybody turns everything on this forum into a black/white thing. I must be ignorant because I really thought we had gotten past racism and racist ideas but after reading this post man was I wrong. The people on this forum who post those racial comments just make themselves sound stupid and uneducated.

Definitely there are as many white crackheads in the Columbia area as there are black ones. And there's a whole lot more white meth heads than there are black ones. What does the color of your skin have to do with whether someone has a drug problem, anyway??

Your an idiot! Just to disprove your argument, can I get a little Michael Irvin. How about Lawrence Taylor. I think fame has more to do with it than the color of one's skin.

who="REALIST"]a perfect example of a DAC-Dumb A$$ cracker. she should kill herself slowly and suffer through it.
You could not be more wrong. Tatum is a human being like the rest of us. She has a problem. Wishing or even speaking death upon her is ridiculous. Don't lower yourself to the level of hate that a lot of posters seem to exhibit here. Wish her well.

So, what you really wanted to say was "If it was a Black person. they would have been charged as as a felon."

Your thinking makes me sick.

You're not ignorant at all. Most people on this forum are, though. Sadly, Tatum's skin color seems to unleash this primitive hatred of another which is based strictly on skin color. In the 1920s. the psychiatric community was found to have diagnosed African Americans nearly twice as frequently with a SERIOUS mental condition as opposed to Caucasians, who demonstrated the SAME psychiatric symptoms as the other group. Similarly, African Americans were charged with and convicted of more serious crimes than any other ethnic group in America. These studies were called The Hawthorne Studies and were conducted nearly 100 years ago.

While it is justifiable for people to be angered over these findings, the responses reflect ignorance which are the building blocks of Racism all over the planet. Prejudice, Racially Motivated Crimes, and violence towards groups like Gays and Lesbian Transgender youth.

Topix should truly close these groups once moderators see that a thread becomes just another forum for the nations collective idiots to spew out their vitriolic troll venom...
