Washington Post Laments President Trump's Proposal to Execute Drug Dealers Will Disproportionately Affect People of Color (Black and Brown Drug Dealers)

PK Note: Discouraging news today. We'll be back to normal tomorrow. 

At the end of 2017, NPR asked, "Why is the opioid epidemic overwhelmingly white?"

Shot. [Largely White Opioid Epidemic Highlights Black Frustration: Of all deaths in 2015 from opioid and heroin overdoses in Tennessee and nationwide, about 90 percent of the people were white., USNews.com, 4-1-2017]:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The circle of patients gathered for group therapy at a doctor's family practice in McKenzie could well represent the face of the state's opioid epidemic. 
An admission by the Washington Post most drug dealers are people of color (black and brown people) that must be protected?
They were in a small city in a rural county, fertile ground for prescription drug addiction, though they traveled from as far as Nashville and Missouri. They were young or middle-aged and ranged from blue-collar workers to businesspeople. They said painkillers prescribed after accidents or injuries paved the way to their dependence on opioids. 
They also were all white. 
Of all deaths in 2015 from opioid and heroin overdoses in Tennessee and nationwide, about 90 percent of the people were white. 
Black people accounted for little more than 6 percent in Tennessee and 8 percent across the country, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. 
Among African-Americans critical of the modern drug war launched four decades ago by President Richard Nixon, the fact that the opioid epidemic is primarily striking the majority race helps explain why it is largely being called an epidemic and treated as a public health crisis, rather than a war. 
"Look at the inner city, it's always been what we consider an epidemic," said the Rev. Ralph White, pastor of Bloomfield Full Gospel Baptist Church in Memphis."If this had been the case in other areas, the community would have been crying out long ago," White said. "But now that it's taking the lives of European Americans, we find that it's at a time of crisis." 
Michael Eric Dyson, a Georgetown University sociology professor as well as minister and author, offered a similar view after an appearance in February at the University of Memphis. 
Blacks are mad any media dare highlight the white death from the opioid epidemic
"White brothers and sisters have been medicalized in terms of their trauma and addiction. Black and brown people have been criminalized for their trauma and addiction," said Dyson, whose latest book is "Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America." 
Doctors and other health care professionals certainly are calling for a health care-led response to the opioid epidemic.
Chaser. [Trump’s proposal to execute drug dealers has some fearing people of color will be harmed most, Washington Post, 3-21-18]:
President Trump’s proposal to execute serial drug dealers has attracted significant criticism from those aware of how disproportionately people of color are sentenced to execution. 
In his speech this week on the opioid epidemic, the president suggested the Justice Department pursue capital punishment sentences for people who illegally sell narcotics that cause deaths. 
“If we don't get tough on the drug dealers, we are wasting our time. And that toughness includes the death penalty,” said the president on Monday when speaking at an event in New Hampshire, a state Trump referred to as a “drug-infested den” during the campaign. 
What is certain is that data shows that African Americans are overrepresented in the country's execution chambers. Although they make up 12 percent of the U.S. population, they represent 34 percent of those executed since the 1970s, according to “Death Row USA,” a report by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. 
Those critical about the implications of the War on Drugs for people of color are expressing their concerns — especially as Trump continues to praise Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte and other leaders who execute drug dealers. 
Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (D-N.Y.) said that Trump's proposal, while concerning, was not surprising.
“His response to a whole host of policy challenges have been extremely regressive. There has been such a sort of undertone of racist policies that I wasn't shocked at all. Here we are in the 21st century facing another substance abuse crisis and the go-to for Donald Trump is 'We're going to use the death penalty as a deterrent' when we know that the death penalty has never been a deterrent,” Clarke said. 
Who cares if white people are dying from drug overdoses when President Trump's - the bigot! - proposal to execute drug dealers will disproportionately affect people of color (blacks and brown people)?

White lives don't matter in Black-Run America (BRA).

Don't you get it yet?

Any policy positively impacting the lives of all Americans will conversely negatively impact people of color, because they are the individuals benefiting from the problem going unaddressed by the state.

A bit off topic.
I have a medically proven condition (Mayo Clinic; X-Rays, CT, MRI) which cannot be fixed by surgery. Because I live in rural Arkansas which has a big METH problem, I must obtain my opioids from a pain management clinic. This entails an every-three-month visit for a urine sample and the counting of my pills...and takes at least two hours. NO physicians or dentists in my area will prescribe ANY painkillers...they insist you go to the pain management clinic. I have private health insurance (thank God) so the actual out-of-pocket cost isn't much. My insurance company however, gets socked with a $300 "facility fee", a $210 "office visit" fee, and a $130 urine test fee. The actual prescription cost is under $10 with no insurance. This whole "opioid epidemic" is a load of crap. It's just another way for the "Medical Profession" to make money.
I could probably obtain the drugs I need (to function) on the street for the same amount I spend in co-pays. I am SO pissed off about the whole hassle.

This is the point of absurdity we've reached in this country. We can't even propose a tough measure against a destructive segment of the population because too many of the drug dealers are "people of color". That's how strong the lobbies for blacks and browns are. Meanwhile the colorblind conservatives still admonish whites who would dare engage in identity politics.

First of all, I find it hard to believe that anyone would take this as anything but an idle threat, especially considering that it’s almost impossible to get even a serial killer executed in most of the country these days. Secondly, when everything in black communities is a crisis, be it drug dealing, addiction, teen pregnancies, poverty, “gun crime”, etc, it’s hard for even the most committed SJW to work up much sympathy for each and every crisis. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but I think almost every non-black person in the country is suffering from some level of negro fatigue.

Ooooo..."such a SORT of undertone". Imagine that, will va?

In other news:

WORLD IS ENDING!!!!
Women and Minorities hit hardest

-A drug epidemic devoid of attendant violent crime and with a modicum of social disruption is just that - an epidemic. This one is going to fizzle out by itself as soon as doctors stop prescribing Fentanyl like cough drops. Docs are human, after all ... and after being told time and time again that it´s safe they use the crap so as not to be labeled "bigoted" (there also seems to be a more general issue of waning pain tolerance in the Whiny Generation). Rest assured the docs knew it was a bad idea.
-It is well to remember the Germans (who else? They also invented the devil I think) developed heroin as a cough suppressant (still works beautifully) and a less addictive alternative to morphine (by making it longer-acting). But as it is with crack and powder coke the chemical differences may be minuscule but the social chasm is wide, and it has to do with felt action and character.

Overall it´s just one more reminder to not fuck with brain chemistry without VERY dire need.
(And yes, Pat, I too have noticed that all the "school shooters" were on SSRIs)

I said this a while back. The boogies always whine that whites are bigger druggies than groids and get punished less for it, and also that drugs are being introduced into their "kuh-moo-nity" by evil outsiders, corrupting their young rocket scientists.

So when something like this is proposed, why is it that groids are the ones complaining so much?

Just like how groids say whites receive far more welfare than they do. Funny, whenever there's a welfare cut proposed, or tightrned up requirements for it, the only screaming about it is by groids, or cucks whining for groids on their behalf.

No we still have a White population in the burbs that watches NCAA and pays full price for Hollywood garbage.

But I would say that rural America is getting tired of liberal fiction. It's the coastal burbs that are the biggest problem. They are too insular and buy into this idea that being "modern" or cosmopolitan means rejecting race. In rural areas there is a common understanding of genetics from farming and a resulting skepticism that humans are somehow immune.

SJWs whine about how arrests and punishments "disproportionately affect people of color" but the unspoken answer to this is for dindus to "act white" -- don't deal in drugs, get a job, earn an honest living, don't prey on others, get an education, etc. That is, for them, unthinkable.

Then again, considering how low-IQ they are, going to school might be a waste of everyone's time, plus they'd have a hard time qualifying for any good, honest job. Dealing in drugs seems to come naturally and provides income in duh hood, as does robbing those same drug dealers.

The opioid problem is just a byproduct of our garbage culture.

That culture is primarily the result of Marxists and egalitarians trying to reshape society and without any regard for genetics or economics.

The whole thing reminds me of "gun crime" in that no one seems to be asking why the problem has dramatically increased since the 60s.

"White brothers and sisters have been medicalized in terms of their trauma and addiction."

I just love it when the "smart ones" try to sound clever and make up their own words. It's like the Amos n' Andy show.


"'We're going to use the death penalty as a deterrent' when we know that the death penalty has never been a deterrent,” Clarke said. "

Agreed. I've said it before and I'll say it again, no threat is great enough to restrain blacks from criminality because it is in their genetics and their complete lack of ability to think beyond 10 seconds into the future prevents the from considering consequences of their actions. Consider the inhuman tortures and capital punishments they've been applying on each other back in the old country since the dawn of time, often spiced up with modern white man technology (like gasoline and tires) and that still isn't enough to stop their natural tendency to crime.

The purpose of capital punishment is not so much to deter crime, but first of all to prevent recidivism (for this it has a perfect track record). There is also the matter of JUSTICE, righting a balance. The whole "eye for an eye" concept.

Trump really loves to run his mouth about over-the-top legislation that he knows the legislature will balk at. It seems to me that he is an absolute master of the internet troll, and the establishment can't help but take the bait every time. Article II of the constitution explains what power the president has and it's not much, in truth he can't really do much even if he actually wants to. I'm on record here predicting no more than some good reality TV out of his presidency and he is delivering in abundance.

I had to read it twice to fully grasp their logic:

1) There can be no doubt that laws against rape and murder dissperately impack those beautiful brilliant young black males.

2) So, do away with dese WAYCISS laws.

3) Declare victory, as the activities formerly known as "rape" and "murder" are just expressions of vibrancy only a bigoted WAYCISS could find unseemly.

Most of the opioid overdose deaths these days involve illegal and extremely dangerous fentanyl, a synthetic opioid manufactured mostly in China and Mexico. It is near impossible to dose correctly. A user, not knowing the amount in a cut substance, risks a high probability of death. Any fentanyl dealer has many direct and indirect dead customers.

Anyone distributing/dealing this lethal poison should get the death penalty. Here are three dindus from Houston just arrested in Ohio: Pictures.

"The opioid problem is just a byproduct of our garbage culture." Yes since the 60's,well even the 20's and 30's ,with Whites always listening to and worshiping Black "music". And most if not ALL those Black musicians from the 20's,30's 40's 60' on up were and are Heroin addicts ,all sorts of drug addicts.And drunks.Hence then Whitey starts to emulate the Black mantra of be a drunk and a drug addict and jam and you are cool and righteous.Our White culture was destroyed by Whites emulating and worshiping Negro drug addicts instead of listening to our own music.Country,classical,bluegrass.Worshiping everything Negro like it is some kind of great thing to be lazy and everything is a party all the time.Whites worshiping Black "affletes" instead of White athletes.Just because your Black and did something Whites have already conquered doesn't mean it's the greatest accomplishment ever. But that's how everything is.Black runs with a football,omg stop the presses.Black goes into space ,omg,stop the presses,Black swims in the Olympics,omg ,stop the presses.Black takes over gymnastics.Stop the presses.It's all propaganda.To hell with Muhammad Ali.Rocky Marciano would of kicked his ass. And ALI knew it.But no our country promotes ALI with a Muslim name to boot.And ALI even knew and was glad his granddaddy got on that boat.

The death penalty has always been a deterrent. When the Supreme Court abolished it in the sixties, the murder rate quadrupled.

Another disastrous court decision was to exempt retards from capital punishment as the most feral and brutal killers test out as morons.

But they understood the death penalty.

So, if you now test as 75IQ, you can't be executed. The Bolsheviks are trying to push it up to 80.

But speaking of disproportionate impact, just who does that benefit?

Hmmm...

Fentanyl sure is some vile stuff - up to 200 times more potent than morphine.

- The Russians used a derivative in the Oct.26,2002 hostage rescue in the Doubrovka theater, Moscow ... a smashing success, but the aerosol killed 125 of the roughly 850 hostages, compared to only 5 killed by the terrorists.

Just to give you an idea of the dosage problems.

Let's take this at face value:

Trump actually is proposing this as a means to put the hammer down on blacks.

Throughout the Obama years, blacks pretty much had the run of the streets in BRA: flashmobs, drivebys, the BLM insurrection. The mainstream conservative solutions of war on crime, enterprise zones, cucking about the "Dems are the real racists," whatever, failed to stem this tide. So what if Trump is planning to hit the black insurrection from a vulnerable flank? Crank up the drug war, target big time black criminals, hang a few examples in the virtual public square, show that YT is still boss! And while the feds are at it, "discover" that key leaders of BLM and the radical left are (fancy that!) dealing drugs and thus are to be put away for keeps.

There is still enough residual support for the war on drugs from the general public, as well as from the various agencies and industries which have profited from narcotics enforcement, to make this work. Attacking drug dealers avoids a messy direct confrontation with race hustlers and black militants. As always, the battlecry can be raised: "We're doing this for the children!"

Now, this is not an optimal course. It's too easy for a law and order campaign to be diverted against other groups on the "outs," like the Alt Right. And we really do not want to give more power to a System which has already demonstrated its hostility to White Americans.

OK, this is all speculation. But it's something to be considered...

A renewed effort in the war on drugs would certainly remove negroes from the streets where, unless they are executed, will put them in jail where we must provide 3 hots and a cot. Don’t forget that the war on drugs also came with erosion of financial privacy and the transformation of the local police into a form of the military.

A more useful war on drugs would take on the drug companies that crank out the opiates and the psychiatric drugs that put dangerous people (mostly Whites as negroes use the illegal drugs) among us.

A better way to remove negroes from our presence and save money at the same time is to abolish HUD. If that is politically impossible, cut its budget and staff it with the most corrupt or incompetent people (negroes would work out well). The resulting scandals would erode political support for HUD.

I agree. I have hereditary RA im my back and shoulder, just like my mom, and her past back surgery gamble resulted in her being permanently disabled, forced to use a catheter, AND on a fentanyl patch.

My one brush with a medical back procedure was an epidural for childbirth, which resulted in me being catheterized for a month and unable to feel my bladder. The doctors were baffled. Both my mom and I have to jump through similarly ridiculous hoops to get meds we legitimately need.

For whatever reason, we have a family predisposition for back issues which respond poorly to surgery. After my mom's disastrous surgery attempt, there's no WAY I'd ever let a surgeon near my back. The only real option is pain management.

Every time I read about this BS "opioid epidemic", I want to scream.

They should be careful what they ask for.  If they have no control and no moral agency, they are animals and should be summarily put down without trial when they start acting dangerous.  That includes going after White girls.

Funny that in the old days, they had enough agency to keep themselves and each other from bothering YT too much.  If 4 generations of dysgenic breeding has taken away even that little, they really ARE animals now.

Blacks love to constantly compare themselves to whites whenever they are complaining about something. Always have to drag whites into it. All these comparisons really just showcase blacks not being able to measure up and follow the law. I'm tired of blacks pointing to their pathetic performance as some kind of evidence for rampant racism. The fact that they can't make the cut AFTER tons of racial/social set-asides and constant white goodie two shoes support compounds the issue even more. Normal people would be embarrassed and keep quiet about it, rather than advertise their constant failings to the world. And even if these failings could be remedied with money and other resources, the failure would reemerge as soon as the props and training wheels were taken away. Besides providing blackie with constant handouts, I don't see the point.


What I want to see become the norm is for black performance to be measured against Asian performance. Asians don't have white privilege and a history of dominance in this country, yet they are cruising along just fine. The Asian is a fly in their racial narrative. Maybe they can then start b@tching about "yellow privilege".

My main reassurance is that people are starting to hate them as much as I do now, even formerly die-hard liberals. Blacks really can destroy ANYTHING, particularly good will.

The Burmese have some 160(!) legitimate minorities to worry about, and most have been utilized at one time or another against the central government, by the British, the Japanese, the Americans, the Chinese, the Vietnamese and the drug lords.

There are no "Rohingya" (lit. the friendly inhabitants of Arakan, a word that does not exist outside goodpersonspeak). What we are talking about is illegal Bengal (the actual term) labour dumped there by the British.

But let´s take a look at the map: The recent gas discoveries are marginal, but China has invested a shitload in port facilities and a LNG terminal (for obvious reasons).

So, three guesses as to who gave the little monkeys guns and assurances.

Critical fact:

Negroids have poor future time orientation due to allele frequency differences...they cannot imagine future actions that result from present behaviors...therefore threat of a future punishment is NOT a deterrent.

This is why punishment must be delivered immediately.  We can't wait for the judicial system, it's too slow to create any association between act and consequences in the tiny mind of the African.  This is why "police brutality" (and corporal punishment in school, etc.) is ESSENTIAL to keeping Black criminality and misbehavior of all kinds under control.
