Heroin devastated the Black community during the 60’s and 70’s and this government did nothing to help. The only help we got was being locked up in prisons. Now they give it a fancy name like opioid crisis and are pouring millions of dollars into programs to help their children fight addiction.
It wasn’t a problem until Europeans started dying. We continue to go to prison while they get the best treatment available. Just like marijuana, Europeans are opening stores all over the country and making millions of dollars while young Black men are being given almost life sentences for 1 bag.
There will never be peace in this country until we get justice. I don’t want ‘peace’. Peter Tosh said peace is the diploma you get in the cemetery!
