But it really did was let the police terrorize whoever
But mostly black boys

In “The New Jim Crow”, Michelle Alexander points out that statistics of drug usages are largely equal between races, but the rate of Black incarceration for drug offenses is disproportionately higher. This is largely due to the fact that the War on Drugs was enforced by racist police systems to keep minority communities contained.
