Why are you so traumatized by what you yourself posted as "not true"

In other words, why do you care, sentinelz?

Is your kid being taught this, somehow?
You in law school?
Your "concerned" for the children you don't know who aren't being taught this either?
Does Harry Potter infuriate you?

What the hell drives someone to so eagerly pound sand on the same topic as if you personally have something on the line?

#14 MJ is about as dangerous as smoking, less than alcohol. Crack cocaine use is heavily penalized, while powder cocaine is widely used with little enforcement. The US jails far more people than civilized countries and has worse outcomes.

The cruelty is the point, and CRT is true.

From what I've seen on FoxNews, the right is using their extreme, and incorrect, definition of CRT to enrage their viewers.

The scandal of CRT on the right is not CRT itself, but how the right defines and exploits their definition of CRT.

Ah yes, of course, now we're resorting the tactic of pretending you don't know about explicit racial discrimination against Asians simply for being Asian. What racism?

Meanwhile, we're supposed to accept that laws or policies or even events which don't even mention racial background, nor have any periphery evidence of being motivated by racial animus, are somehow racist.

If someone could start organizing Critical Race Theory Brunches, thereby merging two of the right's most fearsome villains, Brunch and Critical Race Theory, we could have a full on national right wing meltdown. Perhaps the hospitals aren't ready for it though.

@ebayrepair - not diminishing any groups here...just pointing out that SENTINEL is building up his/her/their straw man with this specific group (repeatedly, I might add) to then tear down whatever argument he/she/they are fabricating about everyone else's comments re: CRT at large.

I agree with you, racism is an ugly thing, and there's really no place for it in a civilized society. I'm not advocating one group over another, or diminishing anyone in particular, except the logical fallacy afficionados.

Make some blanket statement about something cherry-picked (preferably whatabout?) from the larger context of a complicated topic.
Put the onus on everyone else to acknowledge said blanket statement as fact before continuing the conversation in any meaningful way.
When blanket statement is not engaged, accuse everyone else of not arguing in good faith.
Tear down the straw man and declare victory.
If anyone calls you on it, declare them a troll or bot, and again declare victory.

I don't want to use labels, or assume anything, but my experience is that this type of recipe comes from the Libertarian Cookbook.

Do you even know what a straw man is? I ask because you seem blissfully unware you've been making them, sometimes in the same line you accuse me of making them.

"he/she/they are fabricating about everyone else's comments re: CRT at large."

There's one right there. I've done no such thing. I've clearly explained before what I'm referring to and distinguishing it from what I'm not when discussing CRT. You're just making stuff up.

I'd say that's more in line with institutional discrimination, but I suppose that would be splitting hairs.

Now to the drug war:

Can someone explain to me the reasoning behind what was once a 100-1 crack versus cocaine sentencing disparity that was FINALLY reduced to 18-1 relatively recently? Asking for a friend.

"Can someone explain to me the reasoning behind what was once a 100-1 crack versus cocaine sentencing disparity that was FINALLY reduced to 18-1 relatively recently? Asking for a friend."

Here's an article discussing that in 1995:

www.nytimes.com


With a set of mandatory minimum sentencing laws passed in 1986, Congress for the first time distinguished between crack and powder cocaine. Crack, which emerged in the mid-1980's, had been deemed a new drug plague, blamed for escalating gang violence and for a surge in the number of neglected children flooding the child welfare system.
Could this have been based on a correlation is causation fallacy? Absolutely.

The drug war escalated gang violence and caused a surge of children with incarcerated parents. The cruelty was the point and it proves CRT.

Could racism be buttressed by a correlation is causation fallacy?

It's still a common appeal of apologists for institutional racism: Blacks commit more crime, so being more suspicious of blacks is a sensible policy.

"That doesn't explain why they lowered the discrepancy from 100-1 to 18-1.

The rationales for neither the original nor the lower disparity had anything to do with race, as far as I can tell. If it were, then it begs the question why it was not lowered to 1-1, either by the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 or via executive order by the President who signed it (which could have been called DACHA).

That's what I'm inquiring about.

The drug war and the resulting systemic racism stemming from it is a bi-partisan affair. Bill Clinton being guilty of exacerbating disproportionate minority confinement.

The War on Drugs, War on Terror, War on Satan etc. were all over the top reactions that society had towards things they saw as an existential threat. The Patriot Act was signed into law with about a 90% approval rate at the time. As years went by, the immediacy of the perceived threat waned and people reevaluated whether the draconian measures enacted to deal with it were still justified or proportionate to that threat.

In the case of crack, it appears many people saw (and probably still do) see it as greater risk to public health and safety than the powder form. Perhaps partly because of anecdotal stories (which is the same problem many of critics have of "CRT"), and perhaps partly because it is more addictive (not because it is chemically different, but because it is more concentrated and the way it is consumed leads to a quicker and more powerful but shorter lasting high).
