The Racist Truth Of The War On Drugs: Legalize It All, by Dan Baum

The Racist Truth Of The War On Drugs: Legalize It All, by Dan Baum | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Days before Belgium, there were two terror attacks you may not have heard about

The city of Brussels was rocked by explosions Tuesday morning, leaving at least 26 people dead and 130 others injured. Just days before all this, however, there were actually not one, but two bombings you may not have heard about — both in Turkey.  
On March 13, a car bomb in the capital city of Ankara exploded leaving at least 37 people dead and more than 100 injured, according to the Turkish health ministry. On Saturday, an ISIS-connected suicide bomber killed at least four in a busy tourist area in Istanbul. Leaving many asking one question about the reaction.

All the while the railways, as in India, and the canals were busy with the armed and guarded traffic of food and other forms of our wealth in pursuit of that ‘freedom’ bestowed by ‘the market’.

Body Snatchers of Old New York

Body Snatchers of Old New York | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

There was a lot to be afraid of in New York after the Revolutionary War. Burned buildings loomed out of dark, crooked streets, which met at strange angles. Fights broke out in the taverns, while thieves lurked in the shadows. Families huddled in shantytowns constructed out of ships’ canvasses, while garbage piled high on the corners. The city watch was nothing more than forty men with clubs.


Besides the thieves and the brawls, people feared the medical students. The young men in black suits who studied at Columbia College and New York Hospital did as their teachers from England and Scotland had done: they learned anatomy by dissecting bodies stolen from the local cemeteries. In London and Edinburgh, a quasi-professional class of grave-robbers known as the “Resurrection Men” dug fresh corpses from the cemeteries of the poor and brought them to the medical school. In eighteenth-century New York, the medical students robbed the graves themselves, sneaking into cemeteries on cold, moonless nights and carrying wooden shovels to avoid the loud scrape of metal on stone.


But the bodies on the dissecting tables in New York often had a different hue than the bodies in Europe.

I chose this article because there is another form of slavery happening in the United States. It may not be called slavery but it is definantly similar.

Costas question: Compare and Contrast slavery and this new form of punishment.

The Racism Filter (Or, Reading Between Race Lines by Skimming Lines) | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

You need to keep scrolling, reading; because if you don’t, your lack of attention is as bad as the lack of context. And then “Well done Tumblr. You posted a picture without context and made two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.” becomes “Well done lazy reader. You now think two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.”
