In an article titled, “The Unbearable Whiteness of Legalization” by Rebecca Burns in the publication “In These Times” Mariame Kaba of the non-profit Project NIA trots out the familiar hobby horse of leftists, the cause of their eternal hate, the bane of their existence: white people.
Reading Kaba’s bio is quite an impressive career of hating men and hating whitey. Kaba also once described the black incarceration rate as a “slow-moving Holocaust.”
Here is what Kaba said in the interview:
“Another concern is whether, as the prices of marijuana start climbing [because of legalization] and [poor] people turn to using other kinds of drugs, those drugs then get painted as the worst possible drugs on the planet. The people who are doing the “worst” drugs somehow always happen to be the most marginalized people within our culture. That’s why it’s so important that we focus on uprooting the whole architecture of the War on Drugs. If we’re not talking about the root issues of racism and classism, there are bound to be unintended consequences.”
Another option might be, you know, not doing drugs.
