Galatians 6:7 "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."
This is the Day of Judgement, the day of reaping what we have sown. Well, white America, whether directly or indirectly, mocked the Black community as we struggled with illegal addictive drugs, like Crack, most of which was created and funneled into our community by the US government. Other institutions like the media and the prison industrial complex capitalized off our deplorable condition.
The Prison Industrial Complex exploded from around 700,000 in 1970's to over 2 million today, have of which are Black, most of that is drug related. NO programs where offered to treat the drug addict or the dealer.
The media only loved to show the Black man as a drug dealing pimp and the Black woman as a drug addicted prostitute. From the local news, to TV programs, to Hollywood movies, Blacks were stigmatized, vilified, and ridiculed.
Now, today, whites are facing a growing drug epidemic. Meth, Heroin, Crack and prescription drugs are devastating the white community. Now that the economy is weak and many are out of a job, which leads to stress in the home and the breakup of the family, they too are seeking escape, turning to drugs.
The same institutions that mocked the Black man and woman are NOT mocking the white man and woman. You can't find a story in the media, TV, news or Hollywood, that is stigmatizing, vilifying, or ridiculing white drug addicts the way they have done Blacks, nor do you hear of the large arrest records or the white on white violence... but it is happening.
What they have delighted in putting on us, now God is putting on them. You can take it or let it alone.... God is NOT mocked!
Watch this report by 60min.When the nation’s long-running war against drugs was defined by the crack epidemic and based in poor, predominantly black urban areas, the public response was defined by zero tolerance and stiff prison sentences. But today’s heroin crisis is different. While heroin use has climbed among all demographic groups, it has skyrocketed among whites; nearly 90 percent of those who tried heroin for the first time in the last decade were white.And the growing army of families of those lost to heroin — many of them in the suburbs and small towns — are now using their influence, anger and grief to cushion the country’s approach to drugs, from altering the language around addiction to prodding government to treat it not as a crime, but as a disease.“Because the demographic of people affected are more white, more middle class, these are parents who are empowered,” said Michael Botticelli, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, better known as the nation’s drug czar. “They know how to call a legislator, they know how to get angry with their insurance company, they know how to advocate. They have been so instrumental in changing the conversation.”
Heroin in the Heartland - CBS News
Federal and local authorities all over the country say it's the biggest drug epidemic today. Not methamphetamines or cocaine, but heroin.
You might think of heroin as primarily an inner-city problem. But dealers, connected to Mexican drug cartels, are making huge profits by expanding to new, lucrative markets: suburbs all across the country. It's basic economics. The dealers are going where the money is and they're cultivating a new set of consumers: high school students, college athletes, teachers and professionals.
Heroin is showing up everywhere -- in places like Columbus, Ohio . The area has long been viewed as so typically Middle American that, for years, many companies have gone there to test new products. We went to the Columbus suburbs to see how heroin is taking hold in the heartland.
