Study: Blacks hard drug usage many times lower than Whites

If you think that African Americans are the biggest users of drugs, think again! According to a study by the American Journal of Public Health, among all users of hard drugs such as cocaine, opiates and PCP, whites are more likely to abuse “hard drugs,” such as cocaine or opiates, than their Black counterparts. Nothing new During the study, which was actually conducted 12 years ago, researchers studied more than 1,800 delinquent youth and followed their lives through their late 20s. Although Blacks, were not most likely to use drugs, they were in fact most likely to be arrested and sent to prison for drug use. That proves what blacks have been saying all along — that they are being disproportionately incarcerated! The facts don’t lie According to the study: Whites are 30 times more likely to have cocaine-use disorder than blacks Whites are 50 times more likely to develop opiate-use disorder than blacks Whites are 18 times more likely have PCP-use disorder than blacks Drug us is highest among non-Hispanic whites, followed by Hispanics then African-Americans This research raises big questions on just why blacks are being targeted as the biggest drug users. Disproportionate? Yes! Unfair? You betcha! For more details about the study, visit:... read more

Flint water, DPS, A Case for Democracy

It is Michigan’s failed experiment with government by dictatorship i.e. by emergency managers. Exhibit Number One: Detroit Public Schools. After years of raucous school board meetings at which every move the board tried to make was scrutinized and criticized by members of the public some of whom were at every board meeting and made it their job to analyze every proposal, then Governor Engler decided to put an end to the mess by taking the first step toward dictatorship by appointing a board and superintendent. This evolved into the present emergency manager system that doesn’t even pretend to be democratic. The State took a system that had rising test scores and a one hundred million dollar surplus and turned into a system with falling scores and a deficit running into the hundreds of millions. Nobody knows how many hundreds of millions because they are too embarrassed to say. Ironically, they want the students and teachers of Detroit to pay for the years of mismanagement that they were denied the right to participate in. Somehow it is Detroit’s mess to clean up. There’s a lot more dirt under this rug but we can’t air it all here. Enough said to make point number one. Exhibit Two: Flint water. I thought destroying the Detroit Public Schools was the worst that... read more
