For John, BLUF: Equal drug laws might go a long way to bringing race peace. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Why do Blacks vote about 95% for Democrats? PJ Media writer Walter Hudson suggests that it is disparities in drug laws, where the drugs of preference for Blacks have harsher penalties than those for Caucasians.
Here is the money quote:
However, when blacks are four times as likey to be arrested for drug-related crimes despite using drugs at the same rate as whites, there’s clearly some degree of injustice inherent to the system.Yes, absolutely. Some Republican think tank needs to look into this, publish a report and move to get Republicans to change the drug laws, Federal and State. Now
