does anyone honestly believe the drug war would be continued if we sentenced young white men to prison at the same rate as young blacks??? We need these young blacks imprisoned because they create good paying jobs in this country. Building prisons and stafffing them have become the modern day factories and we need a constant supply of young blacks to fill those prisons. Does anyone have any idea how many jobs would be lost if we ended the war on drugs?? It would create an economic crisis. So the only solution it to continue to imprison blacks at ever increasing rates. The drug war was started as a way to disenfrachise minorities and can only be maintained by focusing on minorities. So I say keep up the good work.
