John Mcwhorter is a Senior fellow with the Manhattan Institute, philosopher with extensive knowledge and experiences with black culture. In this video he explains the main problems that are stagnating Black Americans. What he has learned and will articulate is identical to what I've been presenting; however he is much smarter and knows how to articulate it in a manner for all to understand. Cornell West has acknowledged recently that our culture is in turmoil and that is the root of our problem in society today. Mcwhorter will show you that acknowledging a truth or weakness within your culture is not hate. The only way to fix and make things better is to recognize it as it is and then do something positive to rectify it. It's okay for a white mom to proclaim "white folks privilege" because that is her experience from her perspective. However she hasn't put boots on the ground in black society that leads to our cultural dysfunction in America like Mcwhorter and me. Some blacks and whites on this blogosphere are so caught up with the "Sins of Americas Past" that they are too blind to see that in 2014 blacks are the ones that are holding blacks up from prosperity. In the second video Mcwhorter explains how the Police along with the War on Drugs is another crutch to young black men. In general the government started this problem and can end it too! End the War on Drugs we have lost and blacks are suffering the most because of it.

Amen Amen Amen

Our law enforcement officers should cease acting like soldiers at war and return to being peace officers.

Thanks TOT, police officers take an oath to serve the public and uphold the law. Government intervention led by liberals has militarized them and sent them on a mission in the "War on Drugs" it's unfortunate but true that a disproportionate amount of blacks are poor and are into this business; culminating in a disproportionate amount of encounters with the police. It's ridiculous for liberals to assume that the police has a war against blacks and that they along with the rest of white society feel he same about blacks as some whites did during the days of slavery up to the civil rights movement. The war on drugs triangulating with police enforcements are a big problem that can be fixed with the right leadership.

Thanks Jimmy, you're right I went off on an emotional roller coaster for a moment and blamed just liberals; however conservatives have their share of the burden too.

The war on drugs is lost, and as you know I agree on your solution too it and let me admit right now that I know more people that are progressive liberal that agree with this plan more than are conservatives.

Now we need to teach more blacks that our problem as a whole in American society will be much better when we adjust and change our culture to the betterment of ourselves leading to
the betterment of American society as a whole.

The war on drugs is over and drugs won.

Some on the left and some on the right caused this forty plus years of insanity.

I don't think I am ready to legalize all recreational drugs.

Especially not cocaine.

Cocaine is the most destructive substance I've ever encountered.

I personally have known a dozen or more whose lives have been destroyed by that evil substance. Most of them are in the graveyard but a few of them are still around and they are virtually worthless.

It's sounds good on paper but one thing our country is good is excess... I think a more balanced approach that still excludes Cocaine, Meth, to name a few. I do concur that Mary Jane should be a non-issue at this point because you don't even need a dealer; you can grow it on your own if you want it that bad... Just starting with Ms. MJ would have an enormous impact regarding the legal system, penal populations, and crime. End "Reefer Madness" and we can start assessing the impact and make future decisions for other illegal drugs based on any success realized. It's a start...

I have long believed that the only way to stop cocaine is to do so at the border with much tighter security.

It is senseless that foreigners can just walk across from Mexico without identifying themselves.

Cocaine cannot be produced in this country.

Marijuana will grow almost anywhere.

legalizing Marijuana has already caused a spike in homelessness in Denver. while it might seem harmless, but it's not harmless to everyone.

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Sep 03, 2014 at 12:32 PM

Those who abuse alcohol or drugs already has the preponderance of being subject to our nations homeless population. I dare say however that if you were to look up the statistics you would find that alcohol and prescription drugs far out weigh the dangers of the wacky weed. All of the above have the potential to negatively impact ones well being. The reality is the refer is no more dangerous than alcohol and at least ending the enormous burden it places on our legal system alone would have a positive result. As for being a gateway drug, I am not really convinced as alcohol in most cases reduces ones inhibitions and is just as much the culprit.
