It's in an email I got this morning from the folks at Sojourners Magazine.
Blacks and whites use drugs at about the same rate, yet African Americans are 10 times more likely to be imprisoned for drug offenses. This is the unbalanced and inhumane effect of America’s “war on drugs” -- a dirty secret that nobody wants to talk about. The discriminatory treatment of minority drug users has been virtually ignored by the media, politicians, and the rest of us.
Fortunately, Soujourners reports on this kind of thing even if the mainstream media are negligent in calling it to our attention.
