"MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan on Monday highlighted the concerning racial disparities that existed within America’s war against illegal drugs. 'Our big story on this Martin Luther King holiday is the new math of racism in America,' he said. 'The greedy bastards have rebranded racism, calling it "the war on drugs." They’ve made it both acceptable and profitable. While the concerns of racism from the 1950s and 60s have improved in this country, if you look at the numbers the war on drugs has become a racist war.'"
