    I have a pc with 18 gig of ram on it & it still slows down when trying to watch a video on this page (like many others)… to many video ads going on makes viewing this page a problem.

    that's former NY police commissioner Bernard Kerik [a former criminal]… he says "drugs is a way of life in urban areas"? Really? View the video below, who else is in that "urban area buying and using drugs?"… Therefore, the propaganda and conspiracy of arrest and mass incarceration is deliberate, racist and for profit.
    VIEW VIDEO BELOW… Skip to 18:35 [just to save time], until the end. Let's talk about that "other" druggie in that "urban" area… THEN let's talk about crime and incarceration from the suburban areas… and why "they" aren't arrested and incarcerated at "alarming rates".

  4. Wow, such racist bullshit. The question was about blacks, drugs, and the criminal justice system, and his response was "drugs in these urban areas". FACT: Illegal drug activity is not exclusive to black communities, in fact, there are more illegal drugs sold and distributed in white neighborhoods throughout America. Meth labs, marijuana green rooms, and pills is a booming business in white society. Yet, black communities are targeted and blamed for Americas drug problem. Lies lies lies and racist propaganda.

    Never read a study that makes that precise claim. Its insane. But 75% seems an exaggeration. The U.S. Census projects the black population to reach 60 million and a larger percentage of the total U.S. Population in the next three-five decades. It would be impossible. He is assuming that every black male is in the areas he stereotypes. That all would be racially profiled and incarcerated–nationally. Way too many already, but 45 million people? Its sick that there are 2 million under lock and key, and seven under total supervision. But 45 million would mean that something more demonic than every day racism or brutality or profiling could account for. That would make King Leopold, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Andrew Jackson look like moderates! The system is falling apart at 2 million. But I agree that whatever the actual total numbers or percentages, it is unsustainable. And a form of cultural and spiritual genocide. Not in numbers. The numbers are climbing as you read, now about 42-45 million. But these are definitely the killing fields and slaughter houses.

    Where were our black political voices back in 1985? Surely they should have been able to see the end results of this policy and addressed it back then. It was never fair as they pretended to create these laws to go after the kingpins but virtually every single kingpin is walking the streets while their black dealers are still incarcerated. Virtually every major black city was swamped with heroin after the 1968 riots. Again with crack back in 1984-85. These blacks were recognized as no good scum of the earth and despensable addicts. Fast forward to 2015 "Little Johnny & Sue from the suburbs are now being hooked at a higher rate than we are but they're not considered scum or no good – They are addicted but recognized as sick – NO MINIMUM MANDATORY SENTENCING.

  7. 18 Gig of RAM… buhahahaaa… really.

    AMEN!

  9. I'm not sure what the consternation is all about. He is acknowledging that black men are incarcerated at an alarmingly unfair rate, and he is simply saying that it has to stop. I agree with him.

  10. Are he is saying 75% of black men are selling drugs, and will be in prison. He is not makig any sense..

  11. try to express your view without playing the blame game. the problem with selective listening is that you miss the entire message, while focusing on what stand out the most to you( which just happen to be a very very logical statement about urban areas within the black communities.) Lets not talk about what's going on in the white community….no, let's just talk about "urban black communities". and I can prove that what he said makes a lot of sense.

    Steve Colbert I don't have to "try", I've expressed my view quite clearly without any "blame game". I don't do games, and I don't do "blame". There's a big difference between being a criminal and criminalizing a group, a people and a population and an "urban" area. Nothing new, black males have withstood this boldly in the 60's and 80's and 90's, here they are again. Same media ploy in bed with corrupt, criminal and crooked law enforcement. You're obviously not familiar with Bernard Klerik. Furthermore, the clip is what's "selective". What Bernard Kerik is saying is just a very small portion of propaganda he's been perpetuating along with former mayors of New York Rudy Guiliani, Michael Bloomberg and former police commissioner of NY Ray Kelly, regarding crime and incarceration within the black community. Criminalization in which they "justify" with erroneous statistics propagated for the sole purpose of criminalizing and militarization, stereotyping, scapegoating, illegal stop and frisks, discrimination, targeting and racial profiling. Again, watch the video that I've posted and let's talk about the ENTIRE "game" [and I've just scratched the surface], and so-called war on drugs, war on crime and war on poverty, and the DELIBERATE mass incarceration of black males. If we're going to have a true discussion, ALL parties must be at the table… speaking truth. DEMAND [addiction] fuels supply. Supply and demand fuels the drug and gang violence. Let's start at the top and work our way down the drug chain, if we dare. Lastly, I'm adding the many discussions on this subject from one that KNOWS the story and is walking in the trenches… *Michelle Alexander, The New Jim Crow: The Mass Incarceration of Black Males…

    I'll call BS. Funny, this sensationalist claims to know nothing about math, yet comes up with his own arbitrary and unfounded equation for an event that flat out will not occur. There are simply too many brilliant African Americans that will refuse to be influenced by mumbo jumbo. As for the criminal element or the drug use, it will remain status quo. But this country will continue to churn out African American Doctors, Lawyers, Presidents, CEO's, Clergymen, Professors……………..etc. If you eat from this fare of tainted garbage, your mind and body will be poisoned by it's debilitating effects.
