How can anyone not realize the war on (some) drugs is racist?

"Having written on this racist monstrosity many times, both for and elsewhere, it should be relatively easy to deduce my stance, but just in case, let me re-state it for clarity: The prohibition of recreational drugs is a means by which the busy-body, and often racist, losers who desire to control America have decimated and continue to decimate that group of people for which they hold the most animosity and the least regard -- black men. The drug war is not to protect the children, save the babies, shield the neighborhoods, or preserve the rain forests. The drug war is a violent campaign against black men and by extension the black family, among many others (not all of them black, by the way); it has been so since it started." (06/24/11)
