Stanley Nelson’s Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy, which was released of which week on Netflix, is actually a documentary type of click-whoring. of which thing is actually only 89-minutes long. You’re in. You’re out. of which through the same Netflix of which has already spent some 1,0 minutes trying to free a murderer in Wisconsin.
Priorities, I guess.
of which dishonest mess pretends to be a no-holds-barred examination of all the issues revolving around the crack cocaine crisis of the 80s in addition to 90s. yet the item’s actually just an empty exercise in shallow woketardery, which means of which, like all woketardery, the item’s a farcical jumble of complaints in addition to contradictions in addition to lies.
- Race: check.
- Women treated worse than men: check.
- Criminal justice: check.
- Evil Reagan: check.
- the item’s all the CIA’s fault: check.
- Wealth disparity: check.
- Fake news: check.
- Yawn: check.
According to the documentary, the crack epidemic was everyone’s fault, except of course for the actual crack dealers (who are interviewed in addition to mythologized as victims/capitalists) in addition to the users.
Hey, after seeing what the FBI did to lead a coup against President Trump, I am more than ready to believe the CIA looked the different way to allow cocaine to be flown into our country. yet the item’s on of which point where of which wildly stupid documentary hits us with one of its biggest in addition to most shameless contradictions.
Get of which…
Over in addition to over we’re told of which a whole lot more white people used crack than black people. In fact, we’re told of which more than two-thirds of all the crack sold within the U.S. was sold to white people… yet then we’re told of which the CIA allowing cocaine into the country was a racist plot against black people.
If of which many more white people were using crack than black people (in addition to I see no reason not to believe of which), how was the CIA involved in a racist plot? Was the racist plot against white people?
You see what I mean? of which garbage documentary wants the item both ways…
- More white people than black people used crack!
- Crack is actually racist!
Pick one, y’all.
My favorite contradiction is actually how the first half of the doc attacks the police for not doing enough about the crack epidemic, in addition to the second half complaining about all the policing. Once more, of which garbage documentary wants the item both ways…
- Where the hell are the police!?
- Why are all these police here!?
of which doc is actually such a piece of garbage, we’re told something like You couldn’t get a Cuban cigar into the country within the 1980s, yet you could get cocaine in.
in addition to then were shown a clip through the 1987 movie Wall Street where the star of the movie … smokes … Cuban … cigars.
not bad heavens, Cuban cigars were all over the place within the 80s.
Hey, no question America did a lot of things wrong during the crack epidemic…
Based on one little study, our fake media spread tons of lies about “crack babies,” horseshit like of which. We definitely focused too much on prison in addition to not enough on recovery. in addition to when a former crack addict, one of the people interviewed who spent time in prison, points out how when the item’s black people using crack, everyone talks prison, in addition to when the item’s white people abusing opioids, everyone talks recovery, of which’s just a fact.
of which documentary is actually so bad, former Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) is actually the voice of reason. When he’s confronted with his own demands in addition to votes for heavy police action in addition to sentencing against crack dealers in addition to users, in addition to the sentencing disparity between crack in addition to cocaine, he explains the item of which way…
The thinking at the time was of which crack was being used more openly within the black community, in addition to cocaine was a secret drug of which middle class people used of which didn’t hurt anybody. They weren’t mugging. They weren’t killing. They weren’t robbing. The whole idea was to concentrate on where the most damage to society was.
of which is actually exactly what the thinking was (my right now-wife in addition to I lived in Milwaukee’s inner-city within the mid-80s in addition to can testify to of which). The crackdown on crack had nothing to do with race in addition to everything to do with desperate people in black neighborhoods demanding something be done after years of being robbed in addition to mugged, after years of being prisoners in their own homes.
So, yeah, white people in Connecticut might have been buying in addition to dealing in addition to smoking a whole lot more crack than black people, yet the item was the black community being most ravaged.
With the benefit of hindsight, Rangel goes on to call what happened “overkill,” in addition to he’s not wrong, yet of which was the only moment of moral clarity throughout… The only moment where I felt I learned something, as opposed to being TOLD something.
in addition to I’m sorry, yet despite what of which documentary tries to tell you, dealers in addition to users do indeed bear an awful lot of responsibility for what happened. No one forced anyone to take drugs in addition to no one forced anyone to deal drugs. Let’s not forget (in addition to the item might have been nice for the documentary to remind of of which) of which an OVERWHELMING percentage of black people did not use or deal crack.
Hey, the CIA could stroll up to my front door today in addition to hand me a bag of crack. of which doesn’t mean I’m going to use the item or sell the item to my neighbors. Most of us wouldn’t.
The documentary also lies about little things. The Carter Recession inherited by Ronald Reagan is actually blamed on Reagan, in addition to his miraculous economic recovery, which lasted some 20 years, is actually ignored.
FACTS: Between 1980 in addition to 1989, household income exploded by ten percent. Unemployment collapsed through 10.8 percent to 5.4 percent. Inflation (the cruelest tax on the poor) fell through 11.8 percent to just 4.7 percent. Federal tax revenues nearly doubled.
So, yeah, maybe the same corrupt federal government of which just tried to execute a coup against Trump did allow cocaine into the country. yet of which’s a story of which deserves more than 89-minutes surrounded by a flurry of lies in addition to fake news.
