…..from The Presumption of Guilt, the arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr., …”I examine the race and class dimensions of the Gates arrest by looking at how other successful, prosperous, and noteworthy African American men (who are by no means alone in experiencing problems of racial profiling) have grappled with a wide range of encounters not only with police but with countless everyday citizens and found themselves being judged by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.…..

“IT’S IMPORTANT FOR CONGRESS TO UNDERSTAND THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF TAXPAYER MONEY PAID TO DEA EXPERTS FALSE TESTIMONY, THE DEA MUST BE DISMANTLE AND DEFUNDED” 

PROMOTING MIS-INFORMATION ON FENTANYL IN SOCIAL MEDIA

In a recent article published in the International Journal of Drug Policy by Leo Beletsky, Aashka Dave, Zachary Siegel, Sarah Seymour, Sunyou Kang, et. al,

“Misinformation about risks of casual fentanyl exposure goes largely uncorrected in mainstream and social media. This can deflect from real solutions, while resource expenditures on fictitious risks should be redirected toward treatment and harm reduction. Better tools are needed to change misinformed health narratives.” (1) See the article below and PBS Documentary on Opioid treatment.

OPIOIDS NO EASY FIX “PBS”

The article in The International Journal of Drug Policy further states:

“Effective public health requires precision, but the domain of drug policy has long been a province of muddled communication. Even as COVID-19 has captured headlines, North America continues to experience worsening levels of drug-related overdose. Responses to this crisis have often lacked accuracy and conflate key terms and concepts. The very moniker “opioid epidemic” obscures the crisis’ structural complexity behind a vector-based framing (Dasgupta, Beletsky, & Ciccarone, 2018).”(1) (2)

THE DEATH OF BREONNA TAYLOR

NYT’s CHARLES BLOW

According to New York Times Opinion Columnist Charles Blow, an excerpt from his September 24, 2020, article called “Breonna Taylor and Perpetual Black Trauma and The System Erased Her As If She Never Existed.”

“Breonna Taylor was killed by the disastrous war on drugs that is itself hopelessly racialized. She was killed by the judicial system that granted the warrant. She was killed by militarized hyper-policing that is too often dangerous and deadly. She was killed by public indifference that lets all this play out without demanding a correction.

This is a woeful ritual. This is a perpetual parade of anger and astonishment, of loss and longing, of demanding justice and being denied it. It is weighing on the souls of Black America and all Americans of good conscience.

America has created an unsustainable condition, one that I fear will one day explode, and yet the country lacks the will or inclination to right its wrongs. America, sadly, will regret this.”
