    Guess again.

    The drug was is primarily being waged by inner city Democrat administrations.
    It is certainly a heavy part of their rhetoric.

    Actually, that was implemented federally under the Reagan administration, and blacks are jailed extremely disproportionately to both the percentage of drug users they comprise, and the percentage of drug users brought to trial.

    Enough. Fortunately, the ones I know are proud, strong, confident black individuals. I don't associate with hoods.

    Would you want that to include Conservative, straight white males?

    Did you just infer that the federal justice system used race as a determinant criterion in incarceration?

    Maybe...some were white too....

    Born in Uvalde, Texas, she had a tumultuous early life. She was born in 1912 to T. Hillman Smith and Bettie Sue Wood, and was named Lucille Wood Smith at birth; the name was changed to Frances Octavia Smith while she was still an infant.
    At age 14, she eloped with her first husband, Thomas F. Fox, to whom she bore one son, Thomas F. Fox, Jr., when she was 15. A year later, she found herself in Memphis, Tennessee, a single parent, pursuing a career in music. She landed a job with local radio stations (WMC and WREC), singing and playing piano.Divorced in 1929,
    Whew, that was close! She almost had a child out of wedlock.

    There's a few others too.

    I would like everyone to do something.

    And I would like their efforts to focus on treating everyone in the USA with the same respect that they expect from others.

    It was certainly in the back of their minds, yes, given the drugs they targeted, the reasons they did so, and the differences in how the justice system tends to sentence blacks vs. whites.
