  1. It’s the in between or “gray tidbits” that guys like Chris Rock, I dunno if he still feels this way, are missing. He basically throws out all the little details that make don’t explain the whole truths of a situation. The biggest mistake Rock, Barkley and Lemon have made is they don’t consider how powerful the American Media and Statistic Skewers that make it seem like. There are definitely by total number more poor white people dealing illicit paraphernalia (some $38 billion in past 5 yrs in crystal meth revenue seizures alone) than the combined people of color ghettos in America. loved reading that Salon article. Thank You

  2. The worst part I suspect is a guy like Don Lemon, who works for CNN, has access to this type of information but choose to sweep it all under the rug. Just awful

  3. The thing is I’m not advocating that racial communities need to suffer more than others. I’m just pointing out that the crystal meth epidemic in the rural and suburban community is at least 10x worst than the crack epidemic at this very moment due to sheer numbers but is hardly emphasized or reported respectively in media outlets. I advocate for a healthier America and mindset. Maybe empathy can be spread by fixing this.
