Let’s talk about what’s really going on behind this politically driven move by Eric Holder.
Hip Hop Mogul Russell Simmons was in a recent spat with CNN’s Don Lemon where Simmons said:
He is not saying that drugs are toxic to the fabric of the black community. He is not saying that a culture built around a drug lifestyle is damaging to the black community. No, he is saying the #1 problem for blacks in America is drug use being unlawful, and by consequence the criminal arrest for such use is the “enemy of blacks”. The enemy of blacks is the application of law.
Just let that settle in for a moment.
The #1 enemy of blacks in America is the enforcement of law.
So the future of/for blacks, as advocated by blacks, advances the proposition that such a future can or will improve, only if the enforcement of law is removed.
In his own essential words. The black community will be without enemy if,….. the black culture will succeed if,…… and the black community will advance if,….. they are allowed to use drugs without lawful consequence.
So the future of a black generation is essentially dispatched to being a bunch of drugged out, hopeless, gang bang wannabe’s - strung out while searching for their next high.
Really? Just like Trayvon’s friend Rachel Jeantel, who at 20 years old smokes marijuana and is still in High School. The goal here is to make such ridiculous incapacities of self sufficiency, well, just… ok.
It really sounds ridiculous until you comprehend the severity of it all.
Today, what do you think is really behind the pronouncement by Eric Holder?
“Certain low-level, nonviolent drug offenders who have no ties to large-scale organizations, gangs, or cartels will no longer be charged with offenses that impose draconian mandatory minimum sentences”. “They now will be charged with offenses for which the accompanying sentences are better suited to their individual conduct, rather than excessive prison terms more appropriate for violent criminals or drug kingpins.”
This falls on the heels of President Obama proclaiming schools, through an executive order, must stop disciplining black students. Schools must apply racial quotas to school discipline because blacks are incapable of controlling their behavior – and disproportionately impacted by the enforcement of rules.
[*note - it was this mindset that diverted Trayvon Martin away from a criminal justice and ultimately into a position the school was incapable of controlling]
Sound ridiculous? Perhaps to you or I, but that’s not stopping the process of implementation of these guidelines.
This also coincides with the EEO and Labor Dept saying it’s no longer permissible (lawful) for companies to use criminal arrest records during the hiring decision. Why? Because, once again the Arrest/Criminal Record filter, as a hiring decision, disproportionately screens blacks as ineligible.
The White House, the Administration, the President’s Cabinet members, and all attached to the Executive Branch are not hiding this. They are openly advocating this approach.
